Someone watched too much Shark Week!
Kate Moss was supposed to get her scuba diving certification in the south of France only to chicken out after being bombarded by a school of fish.
A friend of the married supermodel said:
"Kate has been snorkelling before and dived a bit. She was keen to get a formal qualification, did some of the classroom-based stuff and was really getting in to it. But then she got convinced she was going to bump into a giant, scary fish - possibly a shark - and began to get nervous. When a school of tropical fish swam past, Kate got a bit terrified by one of the bigger, grey ones. Pals were calling her 'Skate Moss' all afternoon, joking she'd stumbled across a giant skate."
Don't feel too bad for her though.
While everyone else is getting their scuba on, Kate will be sunbathing on Sir Philip Green's multi-million dollar yacht while sipping on champagne or vodka or both.
