I Was There

‘IN the 1960s, anyone who was anyone went to Capri or the French Riviera. Today they go to The Priory.

For those rare few of you without a drug and/or alcohol problem, the Priory is the clinic of choice for the rich and toxic.

The Express reminds us that it has been home to Kate Moss, Michael Barrymore, Caroline Aherne, Ronnie Wood, Kevin Kennedy and Paul Gascoigne.

It’s a wonder English Heritage haven’t given it a blue plaque yet.

And now there will be room for more of the great and not-so-good as the clinic plans to expand its 104 beds by a further 30.

A spokesman explains why.

‘There is a lot more stress and pressure and people are earning so much money,’ she says. ‘And alongside these two factors is the presence of alcohol and cocaine.’

And the chance to say: ‘I was there.’
