The former Babyshambles rocker is happily living his life away from the spotlight and has revealed he's been clean of heroin for more than two years.

Discussing his addiction battle and his music career, the 42-year-old recently told BBC Scotland: "I'm in recovery I suppose I'm two and a half years clean of heroin which is a big deal for me and yeah I'm ticking along writing music, still writing music."

And his recovery shows in his more robust physique. Doherty's life in France and a love of wine and posh cheese on toast has been cited as some of the reasons for his new look.

"I like Comté, Comté on toast." said the Don't Look Back Into The Sun rocker back in March 2020, according to The Sun.

"My guilty pleasure is sleeping. For years and years, I would stay up for five or six days and then I would sleep for 24 hours, so now I love sleep."

The Don't Look Back Into The Sun singer has an 18-year-old son called Astile from his relationship with Lisa Moorish.
