Writer and presenter Stephen Fry has confessed to consuming cocaine at both Buckingham Palace and the House of Lords. In his new autobiography, the ‘QI’ host described his 15 year addiction to the drug saying he’d “‘brought noble properties into squalid disrepute,” during the period.

In More Fool Me, published on Thursday, Fry wrote that he had consumed the Class A drug in high profile places including Windsor Castle, Clarence House, Sandringham House, BBC Television Centre, ITV headquarters, the offices of the Daily Telegraph, the Times, the Spectator and Tatler as well as a host of other exclusive venues.

“There is no getting away from it. I am confessing to having broken the law and consumed, in public places, Class A sanctioned drugs,” wrote Fry. “I have brought, you might say, gorgeous palaces, noble properties and elegant honest establishments into squalid disrepute.”

Fry said he first nervously tried the drug in 1986 in London, but by the end of the decade he would “no more consider going out in the evening without three or four grams of cocaine safely tucked in my pocket than I would consider going out without my legs.”

The 57 year old also went into detail about using the drug in the Commons writing, “Heart beating like an engine, with the slightly trembling devil-may-care desperation of the true druggy, I wiped dry of condensation the rear section of the top of the urinal with the back of my tie, chopped a line there … I took my courage in one hand and my straw in the other and with a sort of coughing House of Commons ‘hear hear!’ roar, sucked in the line and straightened up.”

He then wrote, “I take this opportunity to apologise unreservedly to the owners, managers or representatives of the noble and ignoble premises above and to the hundreds of private homes, offices, car dashboards, tables, mantlepieces and available polished surfaces that could so easily have been added to this list of shame.”

Fry has since overcome his addiction, which he does not believe was due to his bipolar disorder, "I didn't take coke because I was depressed or under pressure” he writes. “I didn't take it because I was unhappy (at least I don't think so). I took it because I really, really liked it.” However he also added that he now “wouldn’t recommend cocaine to my worst enemy.”
