After putting his sordid past behind him and beginning a new chapter with partner, Jud Charlton, 38, their efforts at serious entertainment in the Cabaret world have a come a cropper since their appearance in Tim Arnold's video of a Pete Doherty cover song.
"It's just not fair" says Fillis, 32. "You put your heart in to a beautiful piece of work, and it's misinterpreted by the gutter press as some kind of reference to Pete Doherty. I am an artist in my own right."
Our sources have revealed that before his foray in to the world of pop music, Fillis' so called 'artistic' endeavours involved unspeakable acts with amputees and ladies of diminutive stature. Rescued from a sad existence touring with Art Grippledick's Travelling Sex Circus, Fillis checked in to rehab where he met Jud Charlton and the two bonded over diet pepsi and carob bars.
"You just can't trust anyone" says Fillis, 32. "Tim Arnold promised me that appearing in his video would help raise awareness of the serious artistic direction that Jud and I had embarked upon. And now I find that Tim is just another exploiter, using my image as a substitute for Pete Doherty! I don't approve of drug takers and if I had known this was a Pete Doherty song, I would never have taken part."
Tim Arnold was unavailable for comment.
