She hit out at music executive and television producer Simon Cowell's domination of the music industry, saying more upcoming bands need a platform like Radio 6 so that the country's music scene isn't dictated by Cowell.

Bowman made the comments just ahead of the launch of her new series Evo Music Rooms on Channel 4, which combines live performances from unsigned bands with classic acts.

The Anstruther-born jock was shoved out of her daily Radio 1 slot and onto the Weekend Breakfast show last year.
