Former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft has denied speculation a bag of cocaine fell out of his sock while he was appearing on the UK sports program Soccer AM over the weekend.
The sports loving Ashcroft is a regular on the early morning show, however fans began speculating after a “mysterious sachet” could be seen spilling from his sock and onto his shoe during the broadcast.

Ashcroft, who ironically had a worldwide hit with the song The Drugs Don’t Work while fronting The Verve, soon took to social media to claim the small bag was merely a bit of rubbish tumbling from his pocket.
“Just a quick message to a couple of you trolls on Twitter who are making a name for yourselves out of me, and also people moralising and virtue signalling,” he said via an Instagram video.
“Number one: cocaine and I have had no relationship for decades. Number two: don’t you ever surmise what has fallen out of my pocket. And, don’t bring my children into it.
