Sex Pistols Frontman Threatens To Quit Tv Show

SEX PISTOLS singer JOHN LYDON is threatening to quit a British TV reality show after clashing with the crew and refusing to meet fellow contestants.

Lydon - whose stage name was JOHNNY ROTTEN - had a vicious fight with a cameraman on arriving in Queensland, Australia, for the filming of survival show I'M A CELEBRITY... GET ME OUT OF HERE!

The punk legend, 47, attacked the cameraman after mistaking his England rugby shirt for the kit of London soccer team ARSENAL - who Lydon supports.

The unpredictable entertainer then refused to leave his room in the luxurious VERSACE HOTEL to meet the other nine contestants - including glamour model JORDAN and former ATOMIC KITTEN singer KERRY McFADDEN. Finally five production staff were able to convince Lydon to make a brief appearance in the hotel's presidential suite.

After the incident, Lydon joked, "I don't give a s*** if I win or not because I'm going to be in the jungle with loads of animals.

"At least I'll be at home."
