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:

The Libertines are reportedly being asked to enter a team in the forthcoming Soccer Six championship by one of Pete Doherty's managers. The band, who have reunited to play this years Reading And Leeds Festivals, are being harangued by Doherty's manager Andy Boyd – who's currently serving jail time for a hit-and-run incident – to enter a team. Boyd, along with Doherty, won the competition in 2007, and a source said: "A Libertines dream team would be too good for [organisers] to turn down" (Daily Mirror).
