Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten swears during live This Morning interview

Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon is not known for his restrained behaviour, but it was still a shock to the ears this morning when he appeared on the ITV This Morning sofa and accidently dropped a swear word during the live broadcast.

The rocker was on the show to talk about the new Sex Pistol’s biopic series which John reportedly doesn’t approve of. Danny Boyle, who directed the series, had sent a comment read out by Alison saying: “I love Lydon for what he does and I don’t want him to like it.”

Unable to control his feelings, Lydon leant forward and said: “You ar**hole” to which Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond looked taken a back and quickly apologised for the language. “Sorry about that” said Alison while Dermot let out an exasperated sigh and said: “Apologies for the language.”

Twitter didn’t seem too offended though, with one viewer, @Josneat, saying: Johnny was always gonna swear! I think he’s actually been quite restrained!” And @Bluebazza58 agreed it was only a matter of time saying: “Felt very edgy watching John Lydon on This Morning. Waiting for an inevitable expletive. Luckily only ‘a**hole’ was heard. Unsure how the biopic about the sex pistols can go ahead without his approval. He’s a one off.”

And @Underwulde123 said: John Lydon on This Morning at 11.15am talking about Disney’s new biopic on the Sex Pistols which he obviously isn’t happy with Fruity language for morning tele.” John had previously told The Mirror he didn’t approve of the new TV series called Pistol saying it is “too sleazy”. It’s based on a memoir by former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones which goes into detail about his sex addiction.

Talking about the show, Lydon claimed: “It’s upsetting as a lot of it has sexual connotations which are dubious at best. They have gone for the wrong end of things just to be sensational. I think there is much more quality to the Pistols than that.” The singer, who has had no in put in the making of the series about his notorious punk rock band, said to the Mirror: “Cutting me out is a shockingly stupid move. They can all f*** off. None of these f***s would have a career but for me.”

Danny Boyle, who directed the series, replied with: “John complains we didn’t approach him. We did approach him, and I’d have loved to have him involved.”
