Let’s get this out of the way immediately: No, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols is not the new co-host of Fox’s “The X Factor.”
While that would’ve been totally awesome, we’re sure the 34-year-old Welshman of the same name will do a bang up job alongside ex-Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Even if he can’t play guitar to “Anarchy in the U.K.”
So who is the guy?
According to a press release from Fox, Jones is a native of Rhondda, Glamorgan, Wales who traded up from a modeling career to TV hosting gigs in the U.K.:
Jones’ credits include the late-night series “Transmission,” the marathon music show “Carling Live 24,” seven years on the incredibly popular children’s weekend morning entertainment show “T4,” two installments of “Let’s Dance for Comic Relief” and the special “Guinness World Records Smashed!” He will next be seen [in the U.K.] hosting “Drop Zone,” “Wedding Crashers” and “101 Ways to Leave a Gameshow,” as well as teaming with his brothers in “Jones Brothers Amazon Adventure.”
Well alrighty then.
