Paul McCartney will not be making a cameo in US television show Mad Men, despite earlier reports suggesting he would.



McCartney, who released his new album ‘Kisses On The Bottom’ last week (February 6), has signed a deal with the show’s producers giving them permission to use his songs.

A source had told The Sun that the Beatles legend could also make a fleeting appearance in the programme himself, but this rumour has now been quashed by Vulture.com who say a source close to the show has denied that Macca will appear.

Last month Mad Men‘s creator teased more details about the show’s imminent fifth season. Matthew Weiner gave hints about what fans can expect from the opening episode A Little Kiss in an interview with TV Guide.

Of the two-hour special, Weiner said: ”I like the title to have some kind of synergy with the show so it will pique your interest.”

He said that the kiss in question could be between Don Draper and his new fiancé Megan or ex-wife Betty: “Who says Megan’s even going to be part of Don’s life? He may be back with Betty. One of my favourite scenes from [the series four finale] was when Betty offered herself to him again. And let’s face it, those two look really good together.”

After contractual negotiations took the show off air in 2011, Mad Men‘s fifth series begins in the US on March 25, with the UK premiere expected shortly after.
