Wood enters rehab

Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood checked himself into rehab - after taking part in a wine-tasting session.

The rocker, 61, has battled alcoholism in the past and feared he would miss his daughter Leah's wedding if he did not seek treatment after getting a taste for alcohol again.

Wood checked himself into London's Priory Clinic just to ensure his addiction was under control.

A spokesman for the star says: "The fact he checked himself in because it was Leah's wedding shows, I think, that he is very capable of controlling it."

Wood's daughter Leah wed boyfriend Jack MacDonald on June 21.
