Rogues' gallery:

They're out... but they're not in

Peter Ackroyd Novelist and biographer Dazzling and prolific author Ackroyd qualifies for the list on all counts but the one that matters. "Is it some sort of gay thing? ... I'm not even gay," he claimed after hearing that he'd made it on to last year's list. We pray that you won't be weeping into your cornflakes as we bid this impostor adieu.

Lord Browne President of the Royal Academy of Engineering The former BP Chief Exec (until he resigned in 2007 when he was rudely outed) bounced back as the new government's "super non-exec". John Browne has appealed to others to be bold and come out. A bit rich given his official response to the 2006 Pink List's compilers: "I don't know what you are suggesting, but it is not in the least appropriate that his name is associated with that article."

Samantha Fox Model/Singer/TV personality From Page 3 queen to renowned autocue reader and I'm A Celebrity ... survivor, Fox has been a true renaissance lesbian over her three-decade career. But then we heard her recent Greatest Hits CD, and felt that single-handedly killing off the Eighties revival might be considered achievement enough for one year

Jason Gardiner TV Mr Nasty Omitted on the basis that influence should not be confused with a devotion to self-publicity, Dancing on Ice's Mr Nasty has done his best to stir up controversy with quips about Sharron Davies' resemblance to faecal matter. Said show's resemblance to said faecal matter is seemingly a moot point.

Boy George Musician Refused entry to the Celebrity Big Brother house and now to the Pink List as well? We do hate to kick a man when he's down, but it may take more than a Mark Ronson collaboration for this escort-assaulting chameleon to regain his pop crown.

Sir Elton John Musician Oh Elton. Long have we admired you for your tireless dedication to Aids fundraising and consumerist excess, but cadging $1m to play at the wedding of homophobic shock jock Rush Limbaugh? Really? Please atone by forwarding said cheque to The Independent on Sunday, and your position will be restored forthwith.

George Michael Musician Ever since his 1998 outing, we've admired Michael's unapologetic refusal to play by pop's squeaky clean rules. But there's a fine line between liberated hedonist and abject train-wreck, and he may just have crossed that with his recent fourth arrest in five years, for ploughing his car into Snappy Snaps, no less.

Andrew Pierce Journalist Following last year's Jan Moir uproar, the hope was that this recent Daily Mail signing might ruffle some feathers within that bastion of fine feeling. More fools us, of course, as witnessed by his February article offering support to the Pope in the face of the "madness" of Harriet Harman's Equality Bill.

Louie Spence Choreographer and TV star Had this been a list for the greatest reinforcers of gay stereotypes, the star of Sky 1's car-crash reality show Pineapple Dance Studios would obviously mince it. Alas, as it stands, we can't help but hear the clock ticking on those 15 minutes of his.

David Starkey Historian The Tudor expert made it to No 4 last year, but in 2010 his notorious acid tongue finally obscured all academic prowess, with ex-culture secretary Ben Bradshaw ("The French take culture seriously. We have Ben Bradshaw") and female historians (writers of "historical Mills and Boon") among those on the receiving end.
