    Robbie Williams' flop single 'Rudebox' has been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello Award. The track which was widely panned by critics is up for hit of the year at the British ceremony. The troubled star - who recently spent time in rehab for a prescription drug addiction - is up against Madonna's 'Sorry', and Scissor Sisters' smash hit 'I Don't Feel Like Dancing''.

    Despite only topping the charts in Germany and Switzerland, judges decided Robbie's single was still successful enough to be shortlisted. An awards spokesman said: "The nominations are based on statistical data and the award is for the song by a British writer that has sold the most around the world." Arctic Monkeys songwriter Alex Turner is up for best song musically and lyrically, for the group's hit 'When The Sun Goes Down'.

    British soul singer Amy Winehouse has been put forward for best contemporary song for 'Rehab'. Her nomination follows her BRIT Awards success in February when she was named best British Female.
