And with a fake tan that could blind a man at 30 yards, surely someone must have seen him. It’s the morning after the launch party of his tell-all book, Laid in Chelsea, and when we finally do catch up 24 hours later, it all becomes clear: “Oh God, I think I’m still hungover,” he gushes.
“It was a complete write off yesterday.” And who can blame him for getting stuck into the vintage bubbly?
But this book, which is beyond ridiculous at times, is never going to be for everyone...
"So then I decided it was time to cut off the hair," he writes. Was I really going to lose those locks that I’d spent the past 10 years growing? Was it cathartic to revisit old loves and to relive the traumas again?
As anyone who admits to seeing an episode will testify, many of the characters are not immediately likeable and appear to spend their days doing… An awful lot of sitting around in bars and cafes on the King’s Road goes on, the awkward silences only broken when someone says, “Beaut, really beaut” to which the response is inevitably, “Totes, babe, totes.” It’s not exactly the material upon which bestsellers hinge.
