Cheryl Cole knocked her rival and last year's winner Una Healy from The Saturdays off the podium to snatch back her title as Hottest Female for this year's Virgin Media Music Awards.

That's hot: Cheryl Cole is this year's sexiest female

Meanwhile Pixie Lott narrowly beat JLS to be billed this year's Best Newcomer.

With female artists firmly cementing their popularity across most categories, Lily Allen goes on to triumph over Lady GaGa and JLS to claim her prize for Best Track for the single The Fear.

Bright future: Pixie Lott is Best Newcomer

Take That, also triumphed, being crowned this year's Best Group and for the second year running band member Mark Owen got voters' hearts racing by winning the Hottest Male award.

Ex band member Robbie Williams was named this year's Best Solo Male.

Lady GaGa was runner-up behind Britney Spears to win the Best Solo Female award. However she hasn't gone unnoticed by the public for her eccentric yet addictive album The Fame, as she walked away with this year's Best Album award.

Eccentric: Lady Gaga's The Fame has been voted Best Album

British 1980s new romantics Spandau Ballet received a warm welcome back by their fans this year by accepting the Best Comeback award.

Frontman Tony Hadley said: "Thanks to Virgin Media customers and of course all of our fans for supporting us and enabling us to have the best time back on stage together. The tour so far has been fun beyond belief."

Last year's winner: Una Healy from The Saturday's was beaten by Cheryl Cole to the Hottest Female award

Finally, the ultimate Legend of the year award went, perhaps unsurprisingly, to the late king of pop Michael Jackson.

This year, more than three million music fans took part online in what is thought to be one of the biggest music awards voted for by the public.

Cheryl is manufactured beauty, Una is natural beauty - there's no comparison!

As somebody once said, "Cheryl Cole is really attractive until she opens her mouth"!

Quite an irrelevant set of awards without any worldwide recognition. With the likes of Mark Owen and Spandau ballet being winners you just know the award isnt worth the paper its written on.

All she has to do is smile! Which is a good thing, because I think that's all she can do.

Why on earth does a so-called music award need a category for hottest female/male?? Just goes to show that it's not been about "music" for a long time.

Well done! Considering she missed out on the Grammys!
