Curiously, Pete Doherty's first appearance in the tabloids after Live 8 saw him explain away his ropey performance as being down to having had a row with Kate Moss backstage, not because he was cranked up on drucks.

Now, though, it turns out when he said "had a row with kate moss", he meant "had been starstruck meeting Peaches Geldof":

"I wasn't lost for words and I wasn't out of it on drugs.
Just before I went on stage Peaches squeezed my bum hard and
whispered something rather suggestive to me. It left me in such
shock I didn't know where I was.

"Bob Geldof has organised this amazing global event, I was facing
210,000 people, the cameras are rolling, and fucking Elton John is
dueting with me. And Bob's daughter has secretly made a pass at me.
It's all I can think about. It did my head in. I didn't think Bob
would be very happy."

Tomorrow: Ah, no, actually, now I remember; Gwyneth Paltrow had grabbed my knackers...
