Fifty Shades Of Awks For Lewis Hamilton And Ellie Goulding
Race ace and pop star bring new levels of cringe to BRIT Awards...
Chemistry is a tricky subject. Some celebrity couples have just got it, while others would struggle to pass a GCSE in the subject.

We first had to cover our eyes when Formula One champ Hamilton encouraged the audience to make "a bit more noise", only to be greeted with deafening silence and a pained expression from Ellie.
But then things got even worse as Goulding complained that her dress was uncomfortable, leading Hammy to quip: "Are you going to a wedding or something?"
She responded: "Er, yeah, excuse me... ours!"
We don't think she'd cleared that gag with Nicole Scherzinger - who recently split with Hamilton over alleged commitment issues.
Attempting to defuse the awks, she followed up by saying: "That was a good one."
But Hammy shot her down with a straight-faced "no".
Best not stock up on confetti just yet then.
