Except former Thunderbird puppet Noel didn't turn down the gig because he'd rather bite the head off a chicken or bathe in his own vom. He turned it down because he's "a bit busy". He says he would have done it if he wasn't "a bit busy."
Whatever happened to rock & roll stars? Could you see Ozzy Osbourne doing that sort of thing? Oh, hang on, I suppose you could. It would be a shambling mess but he'd do it.
Alright, what about Johnny Rotten. Oh. On refection, he did do I'm A Celebrity, Get Me On Telly.
If Noel's dance partner was his brother Liam, there might be some rock & roll entertainment in it as they headbutt each other round the ballroom trading infantile insults. But sadly the closest Strictly has come to a rock star so far is Jason "Jason" Donovan.
Don’t rock stars throw tellies out of windows any more? Or die in bed with twins, having overdosed on Babycham and fags?
Apparently not. Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie said he wouldn't trash a hotel room because he wouldn't want someone like his mum having to clean up the mess. Bless.
Rock & roll behaviour: It's not big, it's not clever and your mum will tell you off.
