John Lydon thinks the Sex Pistols are too fat to reunite.

The 58-year-old rocker has ruled out a possible reunion with his band mates Steve Jones and Paul Cook because they've all "put on weight"

John - who once starred in the ''Country Life' butter commercials - shared: "Oh no, that's finished. I mean have you seen us? I mean We've all put on weight but Mr Jones here is coming it at 500 pounds! And I did the butter advert!"

The 'God Save the Queen' admitted he had been further put off the idea of reforming after watching Mick Jagger at Glastonbury in 2013.

When asked if there should be an age limit on performing, John had some choice words for the 71-year-old Rolling Stones frontman.

He quipped: "No, only if you're Mick Jagger. Did anybody see last year's Glastonbury? I mean come on Mick ... it's not about age here, its about the show off bull**** ... I wanted the Stones to give us the juice, the stuff that really put them there in the first place.

"But no, it's Mick in ladies' tights and his testicles are frocked and he's running around like a speed freak and then there's the band looking incredibly embarrassed."

Despite confirming that a Sex Pistols reunion isn't on the cards, John insisted he will still be making his music.

He added: "[I'd stop] only if I got bored with it, and as long as there's human beings in the world, I'm not going to get bored."
