Pete Doherty returned to Glastonbury to perform with The Libertines, as the rocker was spotted signing a fan’s arm on arrival to Worthy Farm in Pilton before taking to the stage on Friday.

Renowned for his drug-fuelled youth and rocker antics, the 43-year-old guitarist and vocalist returned to the music festival this year after adopting a clean-living lifestyle and moving to France.

Pete famously ‘married’ Kate Moss in a joke ceremony at the festival 11 years ago – the couple dated on and off from 2005 to 2007.

A far cry from his bad-boy naughties image, Pete is set to take the stage with bandmates Carl Barât, John Hassall, and Gary Powell.

Despite disbanding in 2004, the band reunited in 2020 for a series of shows – and are set to perform together again as the music festival returns for the first time in three years.

Pete was spotted in a navy vest and pair of shorts, as he leaned in to sign the tatted fan’s arm while on the campsite.

Known for a string of high profile relationships in his heyday, the rocker was most notably in a tumultuous relationship with Kate Moss from 2005 to 2007.

The pair attended Glastonbury together in 2005, continuing the relationship as the singer was at the height of his fame, with a reported £200 daily heroin and crack addiction.

Revealing details of the relationship in his tell-all memoir A Likely Lad, Pete described the couple’s split following a series of ‘blazing rows’, which would see Kate hit him with his guitar.

But despite his rowdy past, which even saw him serve two months in prison, Pete is now clean and enjoying life in France with his wife Katia de Vidas.

Katia is a keyboardist in Pete’s other band, Puta Madres – which is his third musical project, following the Libertines and Babyshambles.

Admitting life in France makes it ‘easier to be clean’, Pete previously told The Guardian: ‘It’s not a big drugs area here. Then, of course, everything stopped. So all the circumstances combined to make it easier to be clean, even for a conniving scoundrel like myself. It just wasn’t worth the aggravation.’ 

And as he prepares to take the stage again with the Libertines, the musician will debut his new image to the crowd of 200,000 people.
