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:

Former Ordinary Boys frontman Preston has revealed the depths of his drug addiction, which turned him into a “zombie”. The singer revealed that at one point he used to wake up with unexplainable blood stains all over his body. “I was doing so many drugs I didn’t know who I was. I was a zombie for months,” Preston explained. Eventually, he managed to kick the habit – by getting deep with philosophy. “I got engrossed with Malcolm Gladwell and Oliver James. They write accessible books about philosophy and sociology and these kept me sane while going through withdrawal” (The Sun).
