Pistols Svengali quits I'm A Celebrity before it even starts!

Never one to avoid a fuss, Malcolm McLaren has pulled out of ITV’s “I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here!” before the gruelling reality show has even begun.

McLaren flew to Australia with his fellow contestants – some of whom Uncut has even heard of – but changed his mind about eating bugs, wearing khaki, sharing camps with minor EastEnders actors and so on at the very last moment.

In so doing, he outperformed his old charge John Lydon, who lasted a few days in the jungle before walking out a couple of years ago.

Should you still want to watch the show, it kicks off on ITV1 tonight (November 12) at 9pm. In the absence of Malc, rock interest is provided by the reliably feisty Cerys Matthews and some bloke who used to be in Five.
