The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has described Jonathan Ross as "the king" of television.

Speaking to Shortlist, he said: "The UK's attention to music, and even the quality of the TV shows, is amazing."

"I loved Jonathan Ross. We have David Letterman and Jay Leno and I love Jimmy Kimmel, but I think that Jonathan Ross was the king."

"I don't know much about him leaving the BBC, but I do know that the world's a better place with him doing his thing."
