Pete Doherty reunited with childhood sweetheart – Tabloid Hell

Babyshambles man books first crush to support him

Pete Doherty reunited with childhood sweetheart – Tabloid Hell
Pete Doherty has been reunited with his first love – Emily Baker – who he wooed at school when the pair were just 11.

The Babyshambles man came face-to-face with his former squeeze as Baker won a competition to support him at his solo show at the Bournemouth Opera House, which takes place tomorrow night (September 24), reports The Sun.

According to Baker, Doherty was a talented dancer, footballer and chess player during his school days.

"At school he was a bit cheeky and always took things too far," she recalled, before telling the singer: "My God, you've grown!"

Doherty revealed in a recent interview he'd been inspired to take up the guitar in order to impress Baker at school.
