Ousted Libertines rocker Pete Doherty has ruled out an imminent return to the group, because none of his former bandmates will talk to him.

The troubled star was dropped from the line-up earlier this year (04) when Carl Barat, JOHN HASSALL and Gary Powell lost patience with his ongoing battle with drug addiction.

And since travelling to Thailand's Thamkrobok Monastery in June (04) in a fresh bid to sober up, Doherty has been left frustrated by a series of unsuccessful attempts to contact his ex-colleagues.

He says, "I haven't spoken to anyone since the day I went to Thailand. Not at all. You know what I mean? I try but there's only so much I can take."
