The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr has dismissed reports he is romancing supermodel Kate Moss after the pair were seen flirting with each other at a London party last week (begs20FEB06).

The musician admitted Moss, who recently split up with Babyshambles rocker Pete Doherty, was great company, but insists his heart belongs to fiancee Catherine Pierce.

He tells gossip site PageSix.com, "Being with Kate was drunken and friendly.

"She's a cool girl, and I had a fun night, but I'm seeing someone."
