Singer scares of a great white shark while filming new show
The former Sex Pistol came face to face with the shark while diving off Cape Town.
But the shark, rated nature's most ruthless killing machine, turned tale and fled, says the Daily Star.
The singer, who now goes by his real name John Lydon,
was in a diving cage in an area called Shark Alley.
He was filming for Channel Five's John Lydon's Shark Attack which is to be screened on November 3.
As his cage went underwater, Lydon says: "I'm an ugly old sod - but what you are about to see is a proper set of dentures."
A Five source said: "It's a pretty tense moment as John and the shark stare at each other - but the shark appears more frightened."
