As I've said elsewhere, this is either the burning of the last shreds of credibility of a once great icon, or he's going to destroy the show from within, as he did Juke Box Jury.

Either way, I suspect it could make for compelling television. But not comfortable.

for Lydon vs Jordan, which just has 'End of the World' written all over it. Either that or it WILL be a Sun headline.

Sid Vicious is probably going to be made to watch this as continued penance...

There's a third option: he displays his punk credentials by trying to destroy the show from within, but fails.

The most important question is "will it still be car-crash television?"

it's already a train-wreck with the lineup...

I was surprised to note that nobody's beaten me to the phrase "filthy lucre" yet...

I *cannot* understand the appeal of celebrity TV. I won't be watching.

Nor will I. It was just the news that made me go *blink*

Ever had the feeling you've been cheated?
Honestly? I don't see any sort of contradiction at all. John Lydon's always been pretty up-front about his crassness -- he went into the whole "reunion" tour business as a money-making scheme and this sounds right up his alley.

Oh, I don't know. I haven't seen the show, but I daresay it could be interesting.

Obviously, you need a complete team...

Mathias's First Eleven for IACGMOOH ...

Lemmy (Captain)
John Lydon
Keith Moon... no wait, he's dead... soddit, put him in anyway.
Howard Marks

... too late, time for dinner, no more! You'll have to complete the list yourself!

Charles Shaar Murray wrote about this in Friday's Guardian. He strongly suggested that it was a publicity stunt (the rumour itself, that is). Though the Ananova article makes it sound a bit more definite.
