Corey Haim dies, aged 38

corey-haim.jpgBreaking news time. Actor Corey Haim has apparently been found dead after a suspected drug overdose. He was 38 years old. Haim is best known for his '80s Hollywood career where he was something of a pin-up. He starred Lucas, Murphy's Romance, License to Drive and, most famously, appeared in The Lost Boys.

He collaborated on a number of occasions with Corey Feldman with the pair being dubbed "The Two Coreys", which inspired the TV 'reality' show titled The Two Coreys which aired in 2007.

However, Haim fell for the trappings of fame and became addicted to drugs.

After spending time in rehab. Haim said, "I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day -- the doctors could not believe I was taking that much. And that was just the Valium -- I'm not talking about the other pills I went through".

Quite recently, Haim appeared to have overcome his drug habit, saying: "I'm clean, sober, humble and happy."

Amy Winehouse: From dealers to healers

winehouse.jpg Amy Winehouse has been a tabloid dream. She's talented and troubled. It's a perfect match for idiots like us who love to speculate and fret.

Well, after battling (ie Enjoying) drugs for too long, Amy has paid to fly a Caribbean healer over to the UK to help beat her addictions, according to reports.

Related: More Amy Winehouse news
The singer apparently met guru Peter Hippolyte while living in St Lucia earlier this year and has now asked him to take healing sessions with her in London to help curb her partying lifestyle.

Hippolyte spoke to Heat magazine and said: "We hug each other, we kiss each other and I put my hands on her shoulder. I tell her not to worry and we sing to each other. When I come to the UK, I will use my hands to help heal her and use my psychological healing to organise her mind."

He continued: "We will say prayers together and she will drink bush tea with antioxidants. I have healing hand and I talk to her and explain things to her. She's a wonderful girl and she believes in me. I am coming back to England to help her."

Megan Fox: "I smoke weed"

Megan-fox- Megan Fox has admitted to smoking marijuana and has called for the US to legalise it. The actress told GQ magazine that she "would be the first in line to buy a pack of joints" if the drug ever became legal. "I can't tell you how much bulls**t I've been through because I will openly say that I smoke weed," she said. The Transformers star added: "People look at it like it's this crazy, hippy, f**ked-up thing to do. And it's not. I hope they legalise it." Fox also criticised US politicians for not taking action sooner, calling the country's war on drugs "all propaganda".

Chloe Madeley apologises for bong mistake

281165Chloe Madeley, daughter of Richard and Judy, has apologised after being pictured smoking what appears to be cannabis. The 21-year-old, who we all saw on Big Brother's Big Mouth, said that she regrets her actions and is sorry for the embarrassment she has caused her family.

The photo, published in the News Of The World, shows Chloe smoking a bong at a Norfolk party last August. The Mail On Sunday claimed that Madeley and Finnigan confronted her after being shown the paper and she admitted her mistake.

"We've obviously spoken to Chloe and whilst we - like most parents - are aware that kids her age sometimes experiment, it is always a bad idea. However, she is an extremely sensible person, and now she knows that too," the couple said in a statement.

"I was really stupid. I regret doing what I did and have learnt my lesson. I am really sorry for any embarrassment I have caused my family," Chloe added.

Rod Stewart's Ronnie help

Ronnie_wood_3 Rod Stewart has vowed to help his former The Faces bandmate Ronnie Wood fight his alcohol demons.

Rod Stewart has vowed to help Ronnie Wood fight his alcoholism.

The pair are due to reform their 70s band The Faces for a series of shows later this year and Rod is determined to ensure Ronnie - who is currently in rehab following drinking binge with 20-year-old Russian waitress Ekaterina Ivanova - is well enough to perform.

A source said: "Rod says that if Ronnie's not back to full speed by September, he's going to step in and get him better. I think he wants to offer him a haven away from his mad world.

"What's happened to Ronnie was totally unexpected. He was firing on all cylinders about doing the concerts. Rod has said he's still sure the shows will happen with Ronnie."

Ronnie - along with keyboardist Ian McLagen and drummer Kenney Jones, original bassist Ronnie Lane died in 1997 - agreed to the performances last month and is due to start rehearsing in October.

The source added to Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Whenever Rod puts his mind to something, he does it. He's good friends with Ronnie, as well as being former bandmates, and he will do all he can for him. As far as the shows go, it's full steam ahead - and Ronnie will be there."

Amy Winehouse's record label say "no, no, no" to future releases

Winehouse1xposure_468x579_2We all know what a naughty girl that Amy Winehouse is. The press publish photos of her doing crack cocaine, she wanders the streets in her bra and abuses her own fans at concerts, add to that all the woes of her beloved Blake Incarcerated and the girl ain't doing well. She's so notoriously blighted by her addictions that she even famously sang about them to score a huge hit (and probably some other stuff). But now her record label has had enough of her wayward behaviour. Yes, Universal Music has rolled up its sleeves and is ready to whip the beehive back into shape. Rate their chances much?

The company's European top-dog Lucian Grainge tried to clean up the Wino after the crack cocaine saga went public, but like her other attempts to sort herself out, the singer soon slid Back to Black. Now, the exasperated suits at Universal are determined that a stern ultimatum will work its magic with them threatening to not release any more of her music unless she ditches the drugs and the booze (and preferably that scabby husband).

An insider at Universal source blabbed to The Sun: “Amy has been reminded of her responsibilities. Unless she is clean she will not be allowed to release another album. She took notice when Lucian talked to her earlier in the year and agreed to go to rehab. But she didn’t take it seriously enough. They would never release her from her deal, they would just not put an album out.”

Hear, hear – well done Universal, after all no great music ever came out of drug-taking did it? The Beatles, Hendrix. etc. that was neither hear nor there. But more importantly, will Amy be bothered about all this? If some of her recent live performances are any kind of indicator, any music she'd release would sound shite anyway.

Mischa Barton avoids jail for drink-driving charge

Mischa_barton_240It must be great being a celebrity. Not only do you get to live the life of luxury but if ever you break the law (or more specifically, are caught doing so), then you're pretty much guaranteed to get a sweet deal. Pete Doherty, Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie have all benefited from being able to holler "don't you know who I am?" in a bid to minimise their punishments, and now former O.C. 'actress' Mischa Barton has joined their ranks.

The young starlet was arrested in December last year for drink driving, possession of marijuana and driving without a license and was charged in February. For normal people, the future might look a little bleak, but not for Mischa as by accepting a plea deal she will avoid any jail time.

Instead she will serve a three-year unsupervised probation term, attend a three-month alcohol-education class and pay a fine of $1,700. And that's it. The drug charge will conveniently disappear and the license charge will be downgraded to an infraction.

A source told TMZ that this is "fairly standard" for a first-time offender. By which they meant 'fairly standard' for someone famous.

Amy Winehouse not off to rehab

Amy_winehouseAmy Winehouse, off to rehab again? Surely not. Doesn't she know that her popularity and album sales increase the more her life degenerates? We all knew the rumours suggesting that the singer was off to get some professional help were too good to be true, and sure enough – they were. When she sang that she didn't want to go to rehab, boy she really meant it.

"Amy's doing well. She is not going back to rehab at this time," commented her representative to US Weekly. "The problem" (wait! There's only one?) "is that her face looks bad because of impetigo - it's not a nice thing, but it's not related to drugs." No, it's probably more to do with living like a filthy tramp.

"(Amy is) having time off, recording a bit at her home studios, about to go back into the studio properly and working towards her husband's freedom." And by time off, he means hitting the crack pipe and back-combing her wig. Back to Black might be a best-selling album, but in her current state any new recordings would probably sound more like a drunken cat being garroted, than a Grammy award winning diva.

Pete Doherty to help young drug addicts - WTF?

PetedohertySpot the problem with this description of a new Channel 4 programme: "Pete Doherty will help young heroin addicts in a new TV show." Come again? The hygiene-free zone that is Pete Doherty can barely help himself and now he considers himself in a suitable position to help youngsters. Is this for real? Sadly yes, the tabloid favourite and regular court botherer aims to use his "musical experiences" (he's a musician?) to help other drug addicts get straight.

A source sought to offer an explanation: "Pete really hopes to be able to use his own experiences to help these youths. Hopefully they will be inspired by his visit." What the hell wisdom can he impart? How to dodge a prison sentence, how to bag an equally skanky model girlfriend? The TV experiment will see him visiting housing estates in Manchester and Sheffield and is due to be screened later in the year. Smells like a nasty PR stunt to me.

Lindsay Lohan excuses her partying past

Cvr_paperLindsay Lohan, that shameless queen of self-promotion, last seen in the buff for a spread in New York magazine, graces the cover of next month's Paper magazine (pictured right) looking like she needs the loo. In the interview the Mean Girls stars opens up about her troubles (again!) It's no wonder she hasn't got any films out – she's so bloody busy just talking about herself. Who needs a career when you can be famous just for being famous, eh Linds?

On the past (drugs, booze, partying): "I had a lot going on in my life and that was a way of hiding from it," explains Linds like a corny therapist. "I hadn't seen my dad; I had a lot of work stress 'cause I was constantly working and never took time to stop. Everything was go-go-go, and the easiest thing was to run away from it, going out and drinking at night. You know, you don't have to think when you let go sometimes. But I didn't realize it was getting in the way of my work – what I've worked for my whole life."

On rehab: "There's not really much else to do when you're sitting in a treatment center. Its like, 'Why am I here? Let's think.'"

On the future: "Right now I just want to find a great script, a great role. I was so used to working and working and working, and for a good few months there was nothing for me to do. Now I know what it's like to be an out-of-work actor, and how much it scares me."

Clearly Lindsay feels a bit sorry for herself and hopes that we readers will sympathise with her 'plight'. So over to you Star Trippers – should we feel bad for Lindsay?

Amy Winehouse back on the drugs and booze

070808amyIt's the news that no-one wanted to hear – the Wino has relapsed. After her family talked to the press about her impressive commitment to detox, the bee-hived singer has fallen back into her old, self-destructive ways. According to reports, she was only clean for about ten days in her bid to perform at The Grammys in the US, but has recently returned to taking cocaine, cannabis, ecstasy and booze.

Her performance at the BRIT awards last month prompted speculation that she was back to the drink, but new revelations from those close to Amy reveal she truly is Back to Black. One friend admitted: “On the first night in rehab she begged a friend to take her in some drugs. After that she did not take anything for a week to ten days. But that was just about trying to get her to the Grammys. Now we’re back to the dangerous levels of before.”

These "dangerous levels" include purposefully burning her hand with a lighter and shrieking: “My life is a shell of what it was. People talk to me and I just zone out. It’s like the whole world is now stillborn. Colours aren’t as bright, love doesn’t feel real. I don’t know who I am and I just feel numb.”

Commenting on the chaos, another of Wino's inner circle added: “We were sat around the table when she held a lighter over her hand and let the flame scar her skin. Amy has been up and down in a way she never was before. One minute she’ll be fine, the next she’ll be in a heap on the floor, screaming she can’t go on. She feels that rehab is turning her into some sort of zombie with no emotion.”

Amy is said to be house-hunting in the Buckinghamshire area, since moving out of her London flat and was snapped carrying a photo of her imprisoned hubby Blake Fielder-Civil as the removals took place.

Oh Amy – at Star Trip we've long lamented your personal problems and can only continue to hope that you get the help you need.

Amy Winehouse's hubby trades her pictures for drugs in jail

Amy_winehouseJust as his famous missus seems to be cleaning up her act, Blake Fielder-Civil, the rat-faced husband of Grammy darling Amy Winehouse, is hitting rock bottom. New reports claim that the jailbird has been flogging signed pictures of the Wino to his fellow inmates in exchange for drugs. Holed up in north London's Pentonville Prison, Blake trades the pictures for a "Joey" (don't ask me, my heroin drug slang is a tad rusty) as the other prisoners are confident they can get some money from the Wino merchandise on eBay.

A source told The Sun: "Blake has to pay for his gear somehow – and he has no qualms about cashing in on his wife’s fame. He’ll take orders from other inmates then ask Amy to bring in signed photos of herself during visits. He usually gets her to write a little personalised note to make it look authentic."

“Once he’s back on the wing he’ll swap these for Joeys. The boys think they’ll get a few quid for them on eBay. It’s not clear whether she knows exactly what’s going on . . . but she must find it strange that all these so-called prison hardmen have suddenly become starstruck Amy Winehouse fans.”

Blake recently over-dosed after taking contaminated heroin and has failed three random drugs tests.

Amy Winehouse's brother praises her fight to ditch drugs

Cps_ich17_110208073143_photo01_photThe brother of Amy Winehouse has been talking up his sister's stint in rehab, claiming that she is now firmly on the road to recovery. The Back to Black singer won an amazing five Grammy awards on Sunday night and performed at the prestigious American music show via a satellite link up to a studio in London. Denied a visa to enter the US, the Wino seemed sober and energetic throughout her performances of Trouble and Rehab (though I could have done without the creepy shaking dancing.) Her parents were at her side to enjoy the celebrations and Alex Winehouse (their parents must like names beginning with 'A') really believes that that it is the start of things to come. "It (the night of the Grammys) was without a doubt the greatest night our family has enjoyed in a long, long time. For the first time in God knows how long, my parents were truly happy, and Amy was too."

"Detox was tough," adds Alex, "but she did it. She was as bright and vivacious as she had been before her demons took over. She didn't miss crack, she told me, and she was glad to be rid of it. Which was a nice thing to hear." Would this new-improved Amy be due to a little time alone from her incarcerated hubby Blake Fielder-Civil?

Amy Winehouse to move in with pal Kelly Osbourne

1352532813525338largeThe troubled bee-hive has been spotted looking slightly healthier of late since entering rehab, and now Amy Winehouse might be enlisting the help of celebrity pal Kelly Osbourne in her bid to ditch the drugs. Unhappy to return to her flat (the one in that crack pipe video), the Wino is said to be making plans to move to the Osbourne's family estate.

Obviously the Osbournes have a bit of space to spare on their mansion estate in Chalfont St. Peter, Bucks. so there will be no need for Amy to kip on the floor or bring her own sleeping bag. Instead, she can look to the support of a showbiz clan that have all been there, done that. A source tells the 'Daily Mirror': "Kelly is probably the most qualified of her pals to help look after Amy - she's certainly a better influence than Pete Doherty." Cos that's so hard.

"Kelly has always been there for Amy, they are very tight," explains the insider. "When Amy went into rehab, it was Kelly who picked out clothes to take in from her East End flat. She's patient, she has been there before with her dad and knew this time would come."

In the news: J-Lo is pregnant, Angie isn't and Jodie Kidd's career woes

Jodie_kidd- We all know J-Lo has plenty of junk in her trunk but does the star now have a bun in the oven? The singer/ actress who had been trying to get knocked up for the past few years by hubbie Marc Anthony could even be expecting twins. A source revealed: “the test calculated that she was about 12 weeks pregnant. The way the foetus is lying made it difficult for the doctor to tell if there was more than one baby in there." Let’s hope she’s in the family way and it’s not just some trapped wind. [IMDb]

- If the drugs rumours circulating about Jodie Kidd prove true, the model could be set to lose up to £500,000 in modelling contracts. So far Jodie has kept quiet on her reported cocaine habit – come on girl, let’s hear your side of the story. [the Daily Mail]

- Another Hollywood star keen to get up the duff is Brad Pitt’s lady friend Angelina Jolie. Busy collecting her Benetton collection of children, the Tomb Raider star mistakenly thought she was pregnant, only to be told by her doctor that she is too thin to conceive. Get scoffing those biccies now! [The Sun]

- Now that she’s had to abstain from the booze during her pregnancy, Charlotte Church has realised that she was pretty unpleasant when rat-arsed. Speaking to Cosmo the Welsh diva confessed that pregnancy “made me realise what a bad drunk I was. I would get nasty, aggressive and jealous. Drinking doesn't suit any of the women in my family.” Let’s hope she stays off it once she's given birth. [Now magazine]

Winehouse's mum says Amy has lost herself

WinoIt has been her in-laws blabbing to anyone who would listen recently, but now Amy Winehouse’s mum has decided to tell her side of the story. Speaking to First magazine, Janis reveals that she no longer recognises her daughter: "Amy is playing Russian roulette with her health and musical gift. She's lost herself. We're not talking about my Amy. It's not someone I recognise. She has become her own stage creation.”

On her daughter’s drug habit, Janis admits to having been in the dark: "I knew she was smoking marijuana but not that she was doing class A drugs until she collapsed. She won't stop until she sees the point of stopping. When I saw her afterwards, I did not tell her to clean up, there was no point. I know all about class A drugs. I understand the process where the brain shuts out everything except the drugs. Talking to her about it won't make any difference." But talking to the press will help? Don’t give up on her mum – she’s still your gap-toothed sweetheart under the bad make-up and drag queen hair!

Courtney Love blames Steve Coogan for Owen Wilson's suicide bid

Since the reported suicide attempt by Hollywood A-lister Owen Wilson, the accusatory fingers have been pointing. Was it the fault of ex-girlfriend Kate Hudson, now happy in the arms of Dax Shepard or was it comedian Steve Coogan? Yes, the funnyman best known for putting Norwich on the map as Alan Partridge has been accused by none other than his ex Courtney Love for Wilson’s drug-fuelled problems.

True, the two are friends and Coogan has had some problems with addiction in the past, but the claims seem wild even for Love. She rages: 'Under normal circumstances I wouldn't comment but I care too much about Owen. I went through it with Steve. I tried to warn Owen. I tried to warn his friends.' Could Coogan be the bad influence or is Courtney crazily mouthing off again?

Amy Winehouse snubs rehab despite overdose

AmywWhen she sang against rehab, boy did Amy Winehouse mean it. The big-barneted songstress may have suffered a suspected drug overdose early Wednesday morning, but she has not checked herself in to The Priory clinic as has been widely reported. Instead Amy is rumoured to have holed herself up in a London hotel to recover after her ordeal.


Though first reported by the media as a collapse after ‘severe exhaustion’, all attempts to hide the more naughty origin of her ill-health were rendered futile after her father-in-law Lance Fielder told the press: "It was bought on by all her excesses. Yes, work is one of them, but there's the drink and drugs too. She's got to get a grip before it's too late." Amy was treated with an adrenaline shot and had her teeny-tiny stomach pumped. Come on love – let’s not be stubborn, rehab can’t be that bad. I’m sure its pyjama-wearing, group-hugging bliss.

Top 5 Worst Celebrity Mums: The stars who should never have been allowed to procreate

KateMy mum is tops, and like a good daughter I am suitably adoring. But I know others aren’t so lucky and have to struggle on as best they can by themselves. Some women are just not naturally maternal and as such can find motherhood a struggle. But celebrities excel at everything, don’t they? If they can sell out concerts in minutes, win Oscars and pen best-sellers and all the while look radiant and flawless, then surely they must make perfect parents? We bring you the top 5 most questionable showbiz mums, and honestly it was hard limiting it to five (Britney didn't even make the list!)


Number 1: Kate Moss


Yes, Kate Moss has a child. A four year old girl in fact, called Lila Grace who lives with her. Kate is one of the world’s most photographed women, constantly makes headlines internationally and yet her daughter remains mysteriously mysterious. On the one hand, this could be due to Moss protecting her precious infant from the intrusive media glare, but on the other it could be that she’s been too busy getting high, ‘designing’ Top Shop clothes and dating Pete Doherty to notice that crying bundle in the corner (I suspect the latter.) With a mum known for drugs, sleeping around and looking like a gaunt tramp, we should book Lila Grace her spell in rehab now.


BobbywhitneyNumber 2: Whitney Houston


Cocaine Kate is a junkie novice when it comes to Whitney. The ex Mrs Bobby Brown is mummy to 14 year old daughter Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown, but her parenting duties never held her back when it came to her partying ways. Her own sister even sold a picture to the National Enquirer of her bathroom cluttered with drugs. But it’s not just the drugs. Whitney has a rumoured eating disorder, has sold off her own clothes to stave off bankruptcy and was being sued by her own father when he died in 2002. She has undergone rehab, with many fans hoping that with her recent divorce from bad influence husband Bobby Brown, she can finally sort herself out. News that she is now dating infamous sex-tape star Ray-J rains on that parade.


Dina Number 3: Dina Lohan


The fact that I have even heard of Lindsay Lohan’s mum says it all. The ultimate ‘pushy mum’, Dina is an attention-seeker, happy to ride the coat-tails of her famous daughter to achieve her own fame. She has indulged and even benefitted from Lindsay’s much-publicized addiction problems and has used the media as a tool in her war against her former husband and Lindsay’s jailbird father Michael. In Hollywood she has surreptitiously campaigned to earn a spot as one of the presenters on US talkshow ‘The View’ and is now in talks to do a reality show tentatively called ‘Mom-ager.’ This programme will follow Dina as she tries to turn Lindsay's younger siblings — Ali, 13, and Cody, 11 — into stars. Well, the first child turned out so well, so why not?


20060205courtneyNumber 4: Courtney Love

Courtney had a troubled childhood and having learned from the experience, seems to have successfully provided her own daughter with one as well. Love is most famous for being the widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, a marriage which spawned their now 16 year old daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Yes – shit name, even worse mum. Vanity Fair alleged in 1992 that Love continued to shoot-up during the early stages of her pregnancy (she denies it) and as a result the couple were investigtaed by Child Welfare Services and the girl removed from their custody for a period. Love has been on and off the drugs over the years and as such in and out of rehab. She’s had run-ins with the law and after experiments in plastic surgery and extreme weight-loss, even looks like a complete mess.

_42467869_jadebaby_pa203bNumber 5: Jade Goody

I’m not one to kick when someone’s already down, but I have never been a fan of Jade Goody and so feel entitled to weazle her out as a bad showbiz mum. Goody has two sons, Bobby Jack and Freddie, from her rocky (violent) relationship with fellow reality TV star Jeff Brazier. Jade has not only endured public wrath over her apparent racism towards Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty, but also had her collar felt by the Police. She was arrested on suspicion of stealing a jacket from Asda, apparently punched a grandmother and was recently found guilty of two counts of driving without a licence and driving with no insurance, receiving a 6 month driving ban. All this and she can’t tell her left from her right – good luck kids, you’re going to need it.

Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton have reportedly sucked-face and made-up, leading many to wonder if there's another dreaded Simple Life in the works.
Lindsay Lohan obviously doesn't rate appearing at a benefit in Australia for kids and tweens very highly, as she skips out of the negotiations. She must've twigged that 13 year-olds are just far too young.
Chris De Burgh (get back in your box, raging-hormones), claims he can heal people with his hands. Me first! Me first!
Penelope Cruz naturally attracts beardy-lesbians. Like Tom Cruise.
The third, and ugliest Hanson brother has just married. Is there no hope for the rest of us anymore?!
Paris Hilton is snapped with some seedy looking skunk. Skank with some skunk, how's that for a new lyric, princess?
Following in the foosteps of Take That, and, err, 5ive, S Club 7 are reforming, heaven forbid.
Not content with appearing in the news only for being found slumped over his wheel on drugs, George Michael has announced Wham! are reuniting for a 'Christmas extravangza', hopefully sharing his drugs with the audience this time.
Russell Brand decides to do a Paris Hilton, and become celibate. Something tells me his attempt will be even more short-lived than hers.

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson loves her new nose

Taratp Heartwarming drugs-recovery story of the day comes courtesy of the Mirror, which has the exclusive on how Tara Palmer-Tomkinson feels about her new nose (you may remember, the old one fell off due to prodigious cocaine consumption. Well, bits of it did.)

"My nose looks so much better but the main thing is it stops people questioning whether I'm back on drugs," she tells the paper. "The doctors told me if I were to ever do anything - which I wouldn't - it'd collapse. Hopefully it'll stop people asking 'is she, isn't she' all the time when I've been clean for years."

Tara is now injecting horse-sized amounts of ketamine into her jugular to avoid nasal collapse looking forward to getting on with her life, with more confidence about her appearance.

Tales from the tabloids: Is it safer to text-message or smoke crack at 50mph?

Jadegoody_1Plenty of gossip in today's tabloids - some of it's even nothing to do with the World Cup...

  • Jade Goody is snapped text messaging while driving at 50mph, risking a £1,000 fine (oh, and a horrible painful death). “It’s outrageous, she is supposed to be a role model,” says an RAC spokesperson. Although he could be talking about the fact that she’s still famous.

  • The Mirror splashes on Corrie star Craig Charles doing a Doherty (i.e. a four-hour ‘crazed crack cocaine bender’) while being chauffeured back from work. Well, Betty’s hotpot does that to a man.

  • The Sun reckons England’s WAGs (Wives And Girlfriends) face a battle against Sweden’s FOFs (Fruar Och Flickvanner) today, although the Swedes are pessimistic. “They’re the underdogs because the WAGs are so famous,” says a Sweden ‘team source’.

  • The Star reveals that Big Brother housemate Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace (hang on, isn’t she meant to be from the street?) has appeared on a “raunchy” website specialising in shots of ladies in uniform. They don’t print a link, as they’re promising “more sexy photos” tomorrow. Tsk.

  • England footballist Gary Neville is a soft-rocker, says The Mirror. He entertains his team-mates with songs by Elton John, Bon Jovi, Oasis and U2.  Let’s hope England aren’t Living On A Prayer tonight... Yes, I did make that up myself.

  • Ex Hearsay star Suzanne Shaw fortuitously manages to lean out of a balcony in her bra just as a paparazzo is walking past. Fancy that. The Star has the pic.

  • Finally, there's a heartwarming tale of a five-year-old girl who woke up from a coma when played James Blunt’s ‘Your Beautiful’. And no, it wasn’t listening to his album that put her to sleep in the first place, you harsh people.

Pete Doherty Arrested In Sweden Last Night After Drug Incident On Plane (Hours After Checking Out Of Rehab)

Pete_2It seemed when my co-writer Toni reported just 5 days ago that Pete Doherty had checked into rehab in Portugal, and predicted it wouldn't work, she was right. Just last night Pete had a similar drug-incident on a plane, whilst flying to Sweden, as he did just the other week on an Easyjet flight to Barcelona. The Sun have reported that hours after he checked out of rehab in Portugal, he was arrested in Sweden, having been in a 'drug-fuelled high' aboard a flight. He had to be pushed from the plane in a wheelchair trolley into custody, as he was so 'wasted' according to witnesses. A passenger claimed that 'as soon as he got on everyone could tell he was clearly on drugs.' Perhaps he went on a bender as his on-off girlfriend, Kate Moss, is reportedly seeking therapy after fearing her life is out of control, and her 'head is so f***** up', as she recently told a friend. Well, we could've told you that! [Katherine Hannaford]

Kate Moss Gets Off Drugs Charges

As criminal-law loopholes go, this is a good'un. Kate Moss isn't going to be charged over claims that she took cocaine, despite the fact that she was photographed snorting, er, a white powder in September last year and the pics were splashed all over the tabloids. But here's the loophole: because the Crown Prosecution Service was unable to tell whether said powder was cocaine, ecstasy or Persil Non-Bio amphetamine, they won't be pressing charges.

Either way, it means Kate can resume her career as a top model without a stain on her character. Well, apart from Doherty, of course, who if he's ever snapped smoking crack again can argue that was just gravel.  [Stuart Dredge]
