Paul Anderson is getting back into the swing of things.

Less than a month after the Peaky Blinders star appeared in court for drug charges, he was spotted going about his day, picking up a pastry from a bakery in London on Wednesday.

But in photographs, obtained by the Daily Mail, Anderson appeared worlds away from his mob something character.

For starters, he was sporting a cream fleece over a leopard print hoodie as he munched on his freshly-bought treat while walking along the rainy, wet pavements.

But what was shocking was his sickly appearance, heavy wrinkles weighing down his sunken-in face. He also wore a worried expression.

The source claimed that Anderson’s recent conviction will “create huge problems… to have a Peaky Blinders film without such a pivotal character.”

In January, Anderson plead guilty to possession of various drugs, including crack cocaine, amphetamines, and some prescription substances.

Police also found a pipe in the car where Anderson was caught, in the company of a friend and a 17-month-old baby.

He had spent a day at a pub in Hampstead, and was reported by the owner after he had smelled fumes coming out of the bathroom.

When law enforcement arrived, Anderson was reportedly heavily “intoxicated.”
