Read our exclusive Babyshambles interview now

Babyshambles‘ drummer Adam Ficek has said frontman Pete Doherty is fighting fit and raring to go for this weekend’s (August 18, 19) V Festival.

The band are set to play the Channel 4 Stage after the singer was given clearence in his bail conditions to attend the festival.

“He’s clean, he got an implant last week, so he’s convalescing at the moment,” said the drummer of Doherty. “All the band are running around him and keeping him in a good place emotionally and physically. He’s making great progress. So he’ll be on the fruit juice and yoghurt. The problem comes when they try to palm us off with concentrate, that’s when windows start to get smashed. It’s bad when they give us non-organic fruit when they say it is organic. You can taste the pH level in the soil.”
