Fatboy Slim has admitted that he feared for his career after he entered rehab for alcohol addiction.

The DJ, real name Norman Cook, believed that he would be unable to dance while sober.

Cook told The Sunday Mirror: "I was scared that DJing sober would be a nightmare. I was s**tting myself that I wouldn't be able to do it or be as good.

"It was two or three gigs before I could dance. My hips wouldn't do it."

However, he added that he receives a "completely different buzz" after honing the art of "euphoric recall".

The star explained: "When I'm in a situation where everyone is 'having it', I have memories of the past coming back to me. I get a natural high from remembering those times."
