The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti cut short his appearance at the NME awards in London last night, so he could return home to have sex with girlfriend Drew Barrymore.

After a busy schedule promoting the band's new album, the couple have been apart for a month - so Moretti was desperate to seek out his belle.

He told reporters, "I'm rushing back to Drew 'cos I haven't had sex in a month."
