Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears are too racy for daytime French TV.

France's broadcast watchdog says TV channels should only show Miley's video for Wrecking Ball and Britney's video for Work Bitch after 10pm, when French broadcasters show a range of programming more suited to adults.

The watchdog, CSA, said in a statement some channels were showing them in the daytime and without parental guidance warnings.

Miley writhing naked around a wrecking ball is too sexually explicit, it says.

And Britney, with her bondage gear, shows "a sadomasochistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
