Hey, it must be like an addiction or something - although we're not sure if it's to each other, or just to the publicity: Kate Moss and Pete Doherty have apparently been meeting up, in sort-of-secret. Just like in Romeo and Juliet, only without the decent scriptwriter.

Apparently, these "secret" meetings have taken place in, erm, a public house:

A source close to the couple said: "They've met up a few times but have been very careful not to get spotted. They decided to go to that pub [The Westbounre] because it's the last place anyone would look for them.

"It's not exactly the trendiest pub around there and they have managed to get away with it ...until now."

Yes, because Doherty - a man who usually buys his recreational needs from toothless bearded men in puffa-jackets held together with sticky tape - would never go into anything like a pub, would he? It's not like his whole Albert Steptoe persona would fit in there, would it? And whoever would think of looking for Kate Moss in the nearest pub to the place where she's staying? And after all, it's not like one of them is one of the most photographed women in recorded history and the other keeps popping up on Newsnight every three minutes and so even people who don't know where ChinaWhites is would spot them, is it?

Last Saturday the Babyshambles singer swore close friends to secrecy before telling them he still loved Kate and that they had been seeing each other again.

Since he'd had his prison diaries published in the Guardian saying how much he still loved Kate, we can only assume the secret was the still seeing her bit. In which case, well done, Pete. Your friends are the most trustworthy people known to man - except, of course, when they're selling film of you doing smack to the papers or giving tapes of your girlfriend snorting coke to the Mirror - so who are we to question your judgement here, eh?
