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:

Amy Winehouse admitted she’s still in love with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil during a private show with magician Dynamo at the Chelmsford leg of the festival. She pulled out an ace card, and apparently speaking with a slight Caribbean accent, said: “It’s our lucky card. He’s my man. We can make it. We’re so strong together.” Her bodyguard then stopped her speaking. (Daily Mirror).

From the papers:

Calvin Harris revealed that he hasn’t touched alcohol since last year’s V Festival, when after drinking so much he couldn’t remember his own show (Daily Mirror).

Charlotte Church and her rugby playing fella Gavin Henson hardly spoke to each other throughout the weekend. He was up drinking until 10am at the Chelmsford site of V Festival after sinking “a heroic amount of booze” (Daily Star).

Katy Perry gave one of her Les Paul Gibson guitars a flying kick during her set at Chelmsford (The Sun).

Jade Goody‘s widower Jack Tweed was singing the praises of V Festival performer Lily Allen to a reporter from The Daily Star, saying: “I’m gonna try and pull her later – she’s well fit.” He then complained when the free bar had to restock, and couldn’t serve him his six vodkas for ten minutes (Daily Star).
