Pete Doherty now fronts the band Babyshambles
Singer Pete Doherty is to spend another night behind bars after a delay in securing the 150,000 bond required for his release on bail.

The former Libertines frontman spent the weekend in jail on charges of robbery and blackmail.

It was thought he would be released on Monday under the strict bail conditions set by magistrates on Friday including a night-time curfew.

But his solicitor said he would stay in jail before being released on Tuesday.

Mr Doherty's spokesman added: "I have been told he'll definitely come out tomorrow. As far as I know he is staying in tonight.

"I am 99% sure but I can't guarantee it."

Highbury Corner Magistrates Court, north London, had agreed to release Mr Doherty on bail on Friday but the 150,000 bond money could not be raised on time, meaning he had to spend the weekend at nearby Pentonville Prison.

Report daily

Mr Doherty, 25, was arrested following an alleged incident in a London hotel on 2 February and is accused of assaulting a photographer.

Musician Alan Wass, 23, also of north London, also appeared in court accused of the same offences.

Both men have publicly denied the charges against them.

Among the bail conditions imposed on Mr Doherty were a curfew between 2200 and 0700, except when he attends a drug rehabilitation centre.

He must be accompanied by a security guard when leaving his home.

He must also surrender his passport and report daily to a local police station.

Mr Wass was also given a curfew and told to surrender his passport.

Mr Doherty left The Libertines at the end of June 2004, but continued performing with his band Babyshambles and has since started a relationship with model Kate Moss.
