Ringo Starr has designed a peace-promoting wristband especially for his friends and family.

Bearing a striking resemblance to SIR Bob Geldof's "Make Poverty History" brand, the former beatle has created his own range of white accessories, featuring the logo "peace and love".

However, pals insists Starr is not intending to steal the limelight from Geldof's humanitarian campaign.

He says, "Ringo's wristbands aren't for charity. He's just giving them to his nearest and dearest in the hope that people will see them and think, 'Aah, peace and love.'"
