The film has largely received poor reviews so far but Doherty's Babyshambles bandmate Drew McConnell has defended the singer's debut acting role.

The bassist told NME: "I thought it was an epic document depicting the struggle of the pre-Victorian pet against the tyranny of 18th Century Europe.

"It's a triumph! It's his first role, and it's a lead one. I'm proud of him."

Doherty's co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg was also a no-show at the premiere. Gainsbourg has not been involved in the press tour since Doherty alleged that they had an affair while filming.

The ex-Libertine recently claimed that he and Amy Winehouse were "lovers".

Confession of a Child of the Century is in UK cinemas on December 7.
