But relax fans....he's helping the YMCA to launch a new charity initiative...

Libertines frontman PETE DOHERTY has been reduced to sleeping rough on the streets of LONDON.

But fans should rest assured that this isn’t the latest dark chapter in Pete’s year, but a new charity initiative for homeless charity YMCA.

Pete will join former ‘It Girl’ Tamara Beckwith, London Mayoral candidate Simon Hughes and the YMCA England staff in sleeping rough on the night of December 10.

The rough sleepers will receive advice in surviving life on the streets from four young people who recently made it off the streets and into YMCA accommodation and programmes.

They themselves will spend the same night staying in London’s five-star Landmark Hotel, as well as spending the day shadowing members of hotel staff in order to gain insight and experience of the industry.

The YMCA will also be launching a new TV ad campaign to raise awareness of homelessness over Christmas.
