Happy Mondays legends Shaun Ryder and Bez have announced the launch of their very own YouTube Channel.
The bandmates shared their plans to launch their Call The Cops channel on the platform, while sharing a teaser trailer for the first episode which will air on Sunday.
Sharing the exciting news on Instagram, the Step On legends wrote: “Brand new trailer for the first episode of Shaun and Bez’s forthcoming YouTube channel Call the Cops – launching this Sunday 25th October.”
In the advert for the channel, Ryder, 58, explains: “We’ll be looking back at our lives, but who knows what the f*** else we’ll be looking back at?”
Later in the clip, the pals discuss forming the Happy Mondays back in 1980.
Shaun recalls: “I mean, we were making records before we could really play or I could write songs.
“The first song I wrote was about the Vietnam War.”
The friends then look back on Ryder’s stint on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! a decade ago.
Bez, whose real name is Mark Berry, 56, jokes: “The best moment of the whole thing is when you got bit by that snake.”
Shaun and Bez appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox earlier this year, but despite being a hit, former I’m A Celebrity contestant Ryder frowned upon the idea of filming a warts-and-all reality TV show because he thought he’d be “too boring”.
When asked what anyone spending lockdown with him would be surprised to find out, Ryder told Q Magazine: “Just how f***ing boring I am. It’s like, we keep getting asked to do these things… At Home With the Ryders.
“Do you really want to watch another version of Gogglebox?
“I’m f***ing 60 almost, I’m not going out to nightclubs any more. My going out now is when I go to work.”
He added: “By the time I get back from that, all I want to do is put a f***ing movie on or something.”
Despite that, the Manchester icon clearly feels like he has something to say, having launched the new channel with Bez.
Singer-songwriter Shaun is not the only one who has had a taste of some solo reality television success after he came second to X Factor star Loose Women panelist Stacey Solomon in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2010.
Bez appeared on the third series of Celebrity Big Brother back in 2005 and went one step further then his mate, as he was voted as the winner of the series.
He beat off tough competition from the likes of Blazin’ Squad rapper Kenzie and supermodel Caprice Bourret to be crowned the champion of the iconic Channel 4 show 15 years ago.
Happy Mondays will headline the brand new festival Creation Day at Wolverhampton West Park in May next year alongside Editors.
