The Libertines frontman also discussed his decision to continue his sobriety at his London show this week, revealing: "And I thought f**k it i'll do London clean, and see what happens there, because I've had some amazing nights here, but I can't really remember any of them.

"So I'd like to face the British crowd actually clean and start something new in my life."

Discussing how he's was "no longer opiate dependent" after four or five days cold turkey in Argentina, Doherty said: "Something just clicked.

"You should see my feet now, they're lovely."

He added: "I need to go and see my mum and dad clean and I need to do some music clean."

When asked about whether he'd keep making music with The Libertines, he said: “The Libertines is a lifelong trip with very dear friends, that for one reason or another will never end."
