Nick Mason says he refused to take part in a Pink Floyd reunion because it would take place at Jemima Khan's country house.

Despite her undoubted charms, Jemima Khan has failed to win over Nick Mason, the Pink Floyd drummer.

Mason has disclosed that he pulled out of what would have been Pink Floyd's second reunion in almost 30 years after he discovered that Sir James Goldsmith's daughter owned the Oxfordshire house, Kiddington Hall, where the concert was to be held.

"That particular event wasn't right for a reformation of Pink Floyd," says Mason. "I said I would do it, but it was a charity event for suits, and it felt wrong to turn a small thing into a big deal just because Jemima Khan was in attendance. "Why play for a lot of posh totty instead of some of the other things we should save that up for – a Live 8 type of thing?"
