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:

Lily Allen‘s dad Keith was involved in a fight with a roadie at Laugharne festival yesterday (April 11). The actor and sometime singer was fronting a talent show at the Welsh festival when he got into an argument with one of the crew, who then proceeded to punch him in the face. Music writer David Quantick Tweeted about the incident, which then prompted Lily – who wasn’t at the festival – to worriedly reply: “Is this true? Is he ok? Can’t get through to his mobile?” However, Quantick later said that her dad “seems fine” (Twitter).
