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:

Dizzee Rascal says he is totally sober at the moment, having forsaken alcohol, drugs and going out in favour of staying in at his new home in Chislehurst, Kent. "I'm not having any alcohol. No weed. I'm not doing anything – except some boxing to release energy," he said. "I'm tired of partying." The rapper also admitted that his new change in lifestyle has stemmed from a dislike of socialising since he's become famous. "It's boring innit?" he said. "The same people, the same chat.
