Moss gets the point

Kate Moss has turned to acupuncture in a bid to stay off drugs.
The supermodel - who successfully completed a drug rehabilitation course after images of her snorting cocaine were published last year - has been photographed with tell-tale plasters in both of her ears.
The plasters are used to hold tiny needles in specific points, which experts say can help patients conquer drug and alcohol addictions.
Ron Bishop, of the British Acupuncture Council, said the treatment helps with "detoxification and suppressing withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, agitation and insomnia".
Earlier this week, it was claimed that in 1998, Kate snorted cocaine off Nelson Mandela's toilet moments before meeting the then South African President.
Gavin Maselle - a model booker and former friend of the catwalk beauty - made the allegation and also said the 32-year-old was high on the class A drug every time he met her.
He told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Kate had been addicted for years. I truly hope she stays off coke because if she goes back, it will be the end of her."
