Troubled rocker Pete Doherty vows to enact violent revenge on his hero Morrissey, after the former SMITHS icon refused to shake his hand.

Doherty - who was thrown out of The Libertines for failing to conquer his drug addictions - was devastated when Morrissey reportedly announced the British band are superior without the destructive heroin user, and refused to meet him.

Doherty now fronts Babyshambles and is threatening to physically attack Morrissey if he ever sees him again.

He says, "When I went to shake his hand he sort of did a rude boy shuffle. Apparently he said The Libertines are better off without me.

"How does that feel? Horrid. Next time I see him I'll boob him one on his hooter."
