Pete Doherty once offered role in ‘Eastenders’ – and regrets turning it down
Libertines frontman Pete Doherty has claimed that he was once offered a role in Eastenders.As reported in The Mirror, Doherty said he was offered a part in the long-running show, but turned it down – something he says he was later “disappointed” about.He said: “There are a few things that have fallen through over the years that I was a bit disappointed about – opportunities that came up that I didn’t take.“I was going to get a part in EastEnders at one point. It was around this time that the Libertines re-formed too.”He also claimed that he turned down an offer of £100,000 to go on Celebrity Big Brother.Last month, Doherty revealed that he hopes The Libertines‘ long-awaited fourth album should be completed by the end of 2022.Doherty was speaking to NME just after they stepped off stage from their opening performance on The Other Stage at Glastonbury 2022 last weekend, where the singer and guitarist spoke highly of the current mood in the camp – which was reflected in the joyous and buoyant nature of their set.“The chemistry is working to the original chemical formula, with the prosperity, harmony and advancement of the Albion’s dream and promise,” Doherty told NME.Looking to the future, Doherty confirmed that writing sessions in Jamaica were pencilled in for work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth‘.Having previously told NME that the record looked set to have an eclectic mix of styles in the same vein as The Clash’s ‘Sandinista’, Doherty explained: “There are lots of things on the table – some really good, strong and melodic rock’n’roll songs.

Jools Holland caught totally naked backstage by Courtney Love: 'She just stayed there!'
During one interview with the New York Times, she greeted reporter Eric Wilson while completely naked, and then walked through the Mercer's hotel lobby in pink knickers with her breasts fully exposed.Looking back on the incident afterwards, she suggested she'd lived up to her "worst reputation" and texted the journalist to apologise.Meanwhile, Salvatore Calabrese later told the Guardian that she had been topless when he had delivered martinis to her at her hotel suite in the Lanesborough in London, too.Though Courtney might have been nonplussed about nudity, Jools has had so many memorable guests on his show that she's not the only one who stood out as he reviewed the past three decades on air.On one occasion, he was invited to sing with a then 12-year-old Adele before she'd even entered stage school via a note delivered backstage by her mum - but ultimately "never heard anything back"."I missed out there, rather, didn’t I?" he joked, highlighting the night she'd gone to see one of his musical performances at Croydon Fairfield Halls.Another missed opportunity was grilling the Gallagher brothers, as Paula Yates - his colleague from The Tube - ended up "collaring" them instead."There was a bit of Gallagher brother arguing when Oasis came on," the starstruck presenter reminisced, claiming it was "great" to have witnessed it.He then had a chat with Noel about cathedral architecture - a topic that seemingly ran in stark contrast to the star's rock 'n' roll roots - before Paula put a stop to their conversation."They were more interested in her than me.She stole them from me!" Jools exclaimed jokingly during his interview with the Radio Times.There was a slightly embarrassing moment onscreen after Pete Doherty of the Libertines

Cheeky Kate Moss jokes she’s ‘always loved coke’ in nod to party days at Diet Coke launch
Kate Moss appeared to reference her wild party years as she joked she’s always ‘loved coke.’The model has a sleek new job as Diet Coke’s creative director, and this week spoke an event celebrating the brand’s 40th anniversary.At the event, during a speech Kate joked that she’s ‘always loved coke,’ followed by a knowing pause.Guests burst into laughter at Kate’s comments, with many fans taking it as a tongue-in-cheek nod to her party days.In 2005 the star had been dropped from multiple modelling gigs after she was snapped allegedly doing cocaine on a night out with then-boyfriend Pete Doherty.Since then mum-of-one Kate has moved on from her wild youth: she is now sober and maintains a healthy lifestyle which involves lots of yoga.A video of Kate’s apparent sly reference was posted to Instagram by user Meemeewhite, and fans flocked to the comments section to comment on the quip.‘Icon behaviour,’ one person said, while another described it as ‘so good.’In another comment Kate was branded a ‘legend’ while multiple others agreed the model was a ‘true icon.’While the star can laugh about the ordeal today, at the time Kate was in hot water when photos of her allegedly doing cocaine in a recording studio were posted o the front page of the Daily Mail.However Kate was never charged, with the Crown Prosecution Service saying in 2006 that the footage could not prove whether the pictured substance was cocaine, ecstasy or amphetamine and therefore whether it was Class A or B.Earlier this year, Kate’s younger sister Lottie Moss revealed she had checked into rehab over a ‘really bad’ cocaine addiction.She shared multiple short videos on TikTok at the time sharing her experience of addiction.One clip bore the caption: ‘I think I took

Pete Doherty once took ‘flying kick’ at Kate Moss in heated row after arrest
Pete Doherty has recalled throwing a ‘flying kick’ at Kate Moss during their tumultuous relationship.The 43-year-old musician has reflected on a holiday to Thailand back in 2007 when his then-partner had to bail him out of prison after he was arrested for doing drugs with some backpackers he met on the trip.However, The Libertines rocker says in his new memoir A Likely Lad that he was violent and aggressive, and left her at the police station.He wrote: ‘Kate and David Tang came to bail me out of the police station, and I was so out of my head I called Kate a p***k and did a flying kick at her, then ran off down a motorway.‘The next thing I woke up at Heathrow in a pair of Thai policeman’s shorts — didn’t even have my passport.’Earlier in the trip, the couple tied the knot in a Buddhist ceremony on the beach, and while the wedding didn’t have a legal standing in the UK, they were looking to make it official.However, they would split later that year after some intense rows.Pete added that there wasn’t ‘really one specific incident’ causing the split’ in 2007 after two years together, and said: ‘Our worlds were not really compatible in the end.’He previously claimed they broke up after he destroyed his teddy bear Pandy.Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pageant: Sir Cliff Richard and Naomi Campbell lead starsKate Moss lives it up at Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pageant after Johnny Depp trialJohnny Depp ‘wants to be friends with ex Kate Moss’ after she surprised him at London gigHe told the Mail On Sunday: ‘Oh no, don’t mention Pandy.

Russell Brand's wild love life - stunning supermodels, Spice Girl and Big Brother stars
Russell Brand previously lived a rather fruitful life in the spotlight and his relationships and sexual conquests often took centre stage.Before tying the knot with his current wife Laura, Russell was previously married to pop sensation Katy Perry.But he was also well known to have dated a string of other famous faces throughout the years and he often hit the headlines for his casual hook-ups and rendezvous.Although he seems to have put his long nights and partying days behind him, many fans are still intrigued with who the actor turned activist previously dated.Daily Star has taken a detailed look into his love life.Back in 2006, Russell dated model Kate Moss for a short period of time while Kate was reportedly on the rebound after her fling with Pete Doherty.Despite their brief fling, things allegedly went sour between the pair because Russell spoke about their encounter to the press.He also shared details of their first night together in his second autobiography called Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal.The star said: "To be in her presence in my house doesn't make sense. It is a baffling fusion of the real and the imagined."It's like looking into the garden and seeing Vegas Elvis mowing the lawn, or going into the kitchen and finding Elvis in the Elvis Comeback Special '68 suit cooking up beans, or going into the bedroom and there's Golden Jacket Elvis from '54."Elvis, lying on my bed looking into my eyes.
