Rooney phones Kelly Jones, Brian May defends Jedward – your music gossip stop

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).
