Keith Richards has confirmed that he won’t be joining Mick Jagger, when the Stones’ singer presents the May 19 season finale of American sketch show, Saturday Night Live.

There has been speculation that Jagger would invite his bandmate to participate in the show, but speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Richards had confirmed he won’t be involved.

“I spoke to Mick and he said it’s something that he said yes to many months ago, so he’s just doing it,” Richards told the magazine. “He’s on his own.”

This will be Jagger’s first time hosting the long-running series, but his third appearance as a performer.

Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones co-hosted and performed, as well as appearing in a handful of sketches, in 1978.

Jagger again appeared on the programme in 2001.
