The chart topping songwriter - who rose to fame penning hits for his bands The Libertines and Babyshambles - fathered 14-year-old Astile with his ex-Lisa Moorish and it appears the teenager has inherited his dad's love of writing catchy lyrics.

In a clip shared on the social media site Astille freestyles some tongue in-cheek rhymes and says: "Yo! This morning I went down to Zara's, It was run by a girl named Clara, there was a guard his name was Matt he was fat.

"I was looking at bras, he kicked me out of the back, what an a*****e.

"He was so gay, he didn't know what to say... what a fat Matt."

Astille made it clear that he is not homophobic after using the word "gay" and wroteg underneath the video: "DISCLAIMER: I am not homophobic nor do I condone such a thing. The word Gay was used in a light hearted and hopefully non offensive way. Plz don't be offended [sic]."

If the confident teen fancies following in his father's footsteps he has more than his dad's connections to get him a foot in the door as his half sister is Molly Gallagher, 20, whom Lisa shares with Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher.

Meanwhile, Pete has stayed out of the limelight recently and previously admitted he doesn't always have "fun" performing live, especially during big gigs because it is hard to connect with the audience.

He explained: "People are so far away. I don't enjoy it but I have to do it because it's in my blood, it's in my soul, it's who I am. But I would never use the word 'fun' [to describe it]."

And the rocker admits he finds it "very difficult" to relax and enjoy himself on stage.

He said: "This is something I have to learn - this is a fault of my own. It's not an idealistic thing where I think 'You should not have fun, you should be serious'. Not at all. I'd love to go out there and have fun and enjoy it, but I just can't. It's not in my make up. I find it very difficult."
