Bandmates pleased by Doherty rehab
Pete Doherty's Baybshambles bandmates are pleased that the singer is attempting to overcome his drug addictions in rehab.

The group's bassist Drew McConnell told the BBC: "I was overjoyed at the news. I think what Pete needs is a bit of rest someplace where he's on lemonade.

"Not wearing pyjamas with arrows on them and receiving packages surreptitiously sneaked under the door."

McConnell revealed that he hasn't seen the troubled rocker since the band's performance at the Weston Park leg of the V Festival, but added that he believes Doherty is currently in good health.

He commented: "The last time I saw him we'd just headlined a small tent in Weston Park and we were all in soaring spirits. I haven't seem him since. I hear from my manager and lawyer that he's doing swimmingly."
