David Walliams apologises for stripping Mark Ronson live onstage – Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today's top gossip:

Comedian David Walliams has apologised after he ripped off Mark Ronson's trousers during a sketch at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Monday (November 2). Ronson was left naked in front of the 3000 audience members at the Concert For CARE gig, when Walliams – performing in character as Des Kaye – played a game of "find the sausage" with him. Speaking after the sketch, which saw Walliams jump onto Ronson and rip his trousers off, the comic apologised for causing any embarrassment. "Mark is a cool, calm character. To put him in that position was out of his comfort zone," he said (The Sun).

From the papers:

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney phoned Stereophonics' Kelly Jones to tell him his wife Coleen had just given birth. "He's over the moon," Jones said (Daily Mirror).

Russell Brand says he's "never felt more settled in all of my life" now that he's dating Katy Perry (Daily Mirror).

P Diddy says he used to clean toilets in a gas station for a living (Daily Star).

Queen's Brian May has come out in support of X Factor contestants John and Edward Grimes, after they covered the band's 'We Will Rock You' on the show. "Damn good luck to them," May said (various).

MIA was at the Los Angeles launch of Jimmy Choo's new H&M collection, along with the likes of Paris Hilton and Cat Deeley (Daily Record).

Robbie Williams turned down a game of tennis with Jonathan Ross (Daily Mirror).
