Pete DohertyPete Doherty is reportedly been given special treatment in jail as he serves time for probation violation.

Last week, Pete was sent to HMP Wormwood Scrubs in London to serve 14 weeks of his previously suspended sentence after violating conditions of his probation and court supervision order.

An inside source told the Sun: “He’s in the segregation unit because of who he is. It’s thought he could be vulnerable.”

“[But] he’s been put on enhanced privileges [too], which means he can have virtually what he wants, so that includes an extra mattress, TV and radio.”

“It’s basically the five-star treatment, which takes most prisoners weeks of good behaviour to achieve.”

Pete has had to cancel his biggest solo gig to date - an event at the Royal Albert Hall - after being unexpectedly sent to jail last week and his Glastonbury appearance is also at risk if he is forced to serve the entire jail term.
