Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder has ditched driving - because he is terrified of hitting a child while drunk.

The STEP ON star admits he only enjoys driving when he has been drinking, and so has now abandoned the roads altogether.

He says, "I've stopped driving now. I never used to care about drink-driving, and then I woke up one day and suddenly thought, 'You know what, if I knock over a little kid, I f**king won't be able to live with myself.'

"It's a real bad thing to say, but I drive better p**sed."
