The Enemy’s Andy Hopkins was rushed to hospital after someone spiked his drink following their appearance at Radio 1’s One Big Weekend show.

The bassist said that he only realised what was happening when he woke to see lead singer Tom Clarke at his bedside.

Hopkins said: “It was scary. I’d only been drinking booze, it must have been spiked.

“I can’t remember any of it but the lads said I was trying to headbutt cars and jumped out of the van and headbutted the concrete.

“Then I was being sick in a corner - they had to call an ambulance. I think I scared them.”

The band are set to play London’s Shepherds Bush Empire tonight (May 31) with Manic Street Preachers, reports The Sun.
