Pete Doherty: Back on the wing

Life: Funny, isn't it? Last year, you couldn't go through a week without Pete Doherty going to court, everyone expecting him to be locked up, only for him to trot out again promising to be good.

Now, though, he's managed to get himself sent down without anyone expecting it.

He's been sent to prison for 14 weeks for violating the terms of his probation order; apparently this included missing one appointment with his probation officer and being late for another.

It's screwed up his Royal Albert Hall gig; if he doesn't get early release, he'll be an absentee from Glastonbury as well.
