Pete Doherty back in prison
His massive Royal Albert Hall show is rescheduled

It all seemed to be going so well for Pete Doherty until yesterday afternoon when judge Davinder Lachar handed the 29-year-old the sentence at a scheduled court hearing in West London. It had appeared the Babyshambles singer had begun to overcome his drug problems with several troubled stints in rehab during 2007, and a move to the country away from the temptations of London saw the musician look to getting his life back on track.

However, a suspended jail sentence for possession of drugs and driving illegally in October last year was brought into affect by Judge Lachar after the court heard details of how he had missed an appointment with his probation team, and was late for another one, reports the BBC.

Doherty's forthcoming solo show at the Royal Albert Hall in April has been postponed, and it looks more than likely he'll miss a planned appearance headlining one of the smaller stages at this year's Glastonbury Festival

Doherty's record label Parlophone released a statement which read, "Peter was very much looking forward to the show and would like to offer his sincerest apologies to all his fans and to all those concerned."

Meanwhile drummer Adam Ficek, his Babyshambles bandmate, told BBC 6 Music, "I feel gutted for him. Obviously he's going to find it really difficult in there but all I can say is that the band is going to stick with him as always."

"As far as I see it I hope we can really look positively on this and when he comes out he can learn from the mistakes he's made and we can persevere with the path that Babyshambles was treading before," added his bandmate.
