Sex Pistols rocker John Lydon has been labelled a hypocrite by British TV
duo Ant and Dec after storming out of a reality show.
The punk icon quit I'm a celebrity... GET ME OUT OF HERE! last month
(FEB04), telling the survival show's hosts Declan Donnelly and ANTHONY
McPARTLIN he refused to compete with his fellow contestants because they all
deserved to win over
But the TV stars admit they were stunned when temperamental Lydon
subsequently attacked his "shallow" jungle show compatriots, contradicting his
Dec says, "I don't understand what he was doing on a prime-time reality
show. He came out and his excuse was he never wanted to win and the other
"Then he called them 'amoebas, pondlife and shallow'. He said he came out
because he didn't want to be part of the bitching, then did just that."
Ant adds, "The sad thing is people loved Johnny and he must have known
they were voting and his charity was making money. To forget that and walk off
is disrespectful to those who put effort into supporting you."
