Pete Doherty has reportedly turned to Islam to help him through his current jail term.

The Babyshambles front man, who is currently locked up in Wormwood Scrubs, has apparently been reading the Koran daily.

He first requested to holy book after to being moved to an isolated cell last week.

A fried told The Sun: He’s been reading the Koran since he went into segregation.

“He’s got a lot of Muslim friends and they’ve been on at him for ages to study it. Now he’s on his own he’s got time on his hands to study it.

“I’m surprised how much it has calmed him down as he was very on edge inside. He definitely seems more chilled. He’s lapping it up and really interested in it. I think it’s helping him in there.”
