Museum Of Pete Doherty

“AS well as not paying his rent, there’s both graffiti and blood on the wall, and goodness knows that else. We have never known anyone like him.”

Andreas Panayiotou should not worry. The blood and other substances belong to Pete Doherty, his tenant. And such is the singer’s celebrity that the flat could be worth more money in its current state then if cleaned up.

Andreas is advised to pass the Hackney flat off as a Pete Doherty installation and charge people a fiver to see it.

And, as the Mirror says, the flat was the setting for those “notorious” snaps of Pete appearing to inject an unconscious female fan with drugs. Make that ten pounds on the door, and stick a chalk line around the area where the girl was seen lying.

Sadly, Pete will not be making an appearance at London’s newest museum. He has been chucked out of the £350,000 flat on account of his owing £10,000 in rent.

Pete is now residing at The Priory rest home for celebrities, where the Star says he has developed a new addiction. No, not to fame and writing hit songs – Pete is addicted to cooking.

He’s befriended an Irish chef who is teaching Pete how to cook dishes like Dublin Coddle and Boxy and Buttermilk Bannock.

And so hooked on food is Pete that he is, apparently, thinking of setting up a restaurant in London’s Camden Town serving traditional Irish fare.

And he could do well. A survey by independent health research groups Dr Foster Intelligence and Experian data (as reported in the Mail) positions Camden third in a league table of “thinnest areas”. (Camden is beaten by Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster).

These people need feeding up. They need an injection of Pete’s good stuff…
