Pete Doherty looks unrecognisable as he tucks into cheese on dog walk in France

Pete Doherty looked unrecognisable as he tucked into some bread while on a low-key dog walk near his French home.

The 42-year-old star looked worlds away from his wild child rocker days as he donned a beret on top of his long, grey locks with a white shirt with some navy shorts.

He has been enjoying a relaxed lifestyle after moving to France to be with his girlfriend, Latia de Vidas.

Pete and his husky were joined by Rafa, who plays with the musician in his latest band Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres.

The former Babyshambles star proved to be particularly enticed by his hunk of bread, which he recently revealed was his new guilty pleasure after giving up drugs.

He told The Sun: "I like Comté, Comté on toast. My guilty pleasure is sleeping.

"For years and years, I would stay up for five or six days and then I would sleep for 24 hours, so now I love sleep.

"At the moment, I'm quite clean. I stopped taking heroin and ketamine," he added.

Pete found fame in The Libertines in the early noughties and became a tabloid fixture when he began dating Kate Moss in 2005.

Nowadays, he can be found enjoying the French countryside with his partner, Latia.

Pete is a father to a teenage son, Astile, from a previous relationship with Lisa Moorish, and has a daughter Aisling, who he shares with model Lindi Hingston.

The star has reportedly embraced every aspect of laid back French living, even taking up the popular bowls-style sport Pétanque.

Pete also admitted that he would love some fast food — but there are no takeaway shops in the area of Normandy in which he lives.

He told the publication: "I’d have a Big Mac if I could, but I can’t. The nearest McDonald’s is 40 minutes away."

Pete and Latia now lead a peaceful life in Étretat, a coastal town popular with visiting Parisians.

During the pair's recent outing, Pete was seen wearing a face-mask while shopping at the local store and butchers with his girlfriend.

The loved-up couple were then spotted taking their pet dog to the vets.

Though it's not known how long Pete has been dating Katia, the pair were first spotted in public in 2019.
