Pete Doherty tells Louis Theroux what put him off supermodel ex Kate Moss

Pete Doherty tells Louis Theroux what put him off supermodel ex Kate Moss

Louis Theroux interviewed Pete Doherty for his latest series on BBC Two

Louis Theroux is back on our screens wowing us as king of our documentary-loving hearts.

The documentarian’s latest series kicked off last week (7 November), featuring boxer Anthony Joshua.

The second series of Louis Theroux Interviews… sees the 53-year-old chatting with major names from various worlds including music, sport and film.

Airing each week on BBC Two, he dives deep into the stars’ lives, uncovering things you might never have known about them.

And last night’s (14 November) featuring Pete Doherty has been praised by many viewers as Theroux’s ‘best ever’ interview.

Doherty is of course best known for being the co-frontman of The Libertines, responsible for hits such as ‘Don’t Look Back into the Sun’ and ‘Can’t Stand Me Now’.

The 44-year-old now lives over in Normandy with his wife Katia de Vidas and their five-month-old daughter Billie-May, with Theroux travelling over to their remote French bolthole to film.

During the episode, the pair discussed Doherty’s struggles with drugs, had a little sing together and also took a tour of the 44-year-old’s ‘Atelier’.

In this dusty back room, the musician keeps all sorts of mementos from his life and times with the rock band.

One of these included Kate Moss’ personalised suitcase which Louis picked up on.

Doherty joked: "You're starting to make me look like I've got this locker full of Kate Moss memories or something. That's complete chance."

The frontman went on to open up about his relationship with the British model.

The pair dated from 2005 to 2007 and even tied the knot in a ‘unofficial ceremony’ in Thailand before calling it quits a few months later.

Doherty told Theroux he’d recently seen Moss in a TV advert, reminding him of what ‘put him off’ his ex.

“I saw her in a Coca Cola ad the other day,” the Babyshambles singer said.

He then mimicked Moss’ London accent as he continued: “Coca Cola. That's what she'd say in the morning, to her assistant, and then I learnt Donald Trump does the same thing and it put me off a bit.”

Theroux clarified: “What, drinking Coke?”

“Well, ordering it from her assistant all the time," Doherty replied.

In the rock singer’s book A Likely Lad, released last year, he expanded on his and Moss’ split, saying there was ‘not really one specific incident that caused them to split’.

Doherty wrote that their ‘worlds were not really compatible in the end’.

But the musician did add: “Kate didn’t go to crack dens. She never had an interest in all that, and, if I’m honest, that’s why we broke up.”

Users praised the episode with Doherty as ‘absolute tv gold’, calling Theroux’s interview ‘fascinating’ as others even added: “Brilliant but about 3 hours too short! So much more to his story.”

And if last night’s episode is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat as Louis is still to interview Raye, Ashley Walters, Chelsea Manning and Dame Joan Collins.
