Shaun Ryder - Shaun Ryder Rules Out Osbournes-style Reality Show

Reformed rock hellraiser Shaun Ryder repeatedly turns down requests to shoot a fly-on-the-wall reality show, insisting his home life is now so boring it would fail to attract any viewers.

The Happy Mondays frontman has shot a four-part documentary, titled Shaun Ryder On Ufos, for the History Channel, in which he searches for proof of alien life.

The series was devised following his hit appearance on the U.K.'s I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! in 2010, when Ryder was bombarded with offers of Tv work as soon as he left the Australian jungle.

Most network executives want him to shoot an Osbournes-style 'at home' show - but the former drug addict is adamant his life is now too dull to film.

Ryder tells Q magazine, "When I came out of the jungle I was was offered all sorts of telly (television) but didn't fancy any of it... (It was) reality stuff, mainly. I always get asked to do Ozzy Osbourne-type ones, 'At Home With The Ryders'. That's just not gonna happen. I've two young kids and I'm home with them. We go to the park and watch (animated kids' show) Peppa Pig. 'At Home With The Ryders' would be f**king boring."
