Another one bites the rehab dust, this time it’s Fatboy Slim. The superstar DJ – real name Norman Cook – voluntarily entered a specialist clinic to be treated for alcohol addiction on Monday (02.03.09). It has been claimed Cook – who is married to radio DJ Zoe Ball – has had a problem with drink “for some time”. The musician’s manager Garry Blackburn said: “It’s all pretty straightforward. He has gone in voluntarily to sort out his drinking problem. He chose the centre in the South of England because it gets good results and is a quiet location.” Cook, 45 – who has a nine-year-old son, Woody, with Zoe – has previously admitted he relies on alcohol before he performs live. He said: “Fatboy Slim is my alter ego – he’s confident, a bit of a show off. It takes me until midnight to psyche myself into him. Externally, the difference between me and him is a bad Hawaiian shirt and half a bottle of vodka. Sometimes it feels a little undignified, but I never seem to get tired of getting drunk. I’ve tried going on stage sober and it wasn’t much fun.”

One thing we do know is that we will be tuning in when it airs, all those tears and tantrums will make cracking TV.
