The Sex Pistols are to get back together again for a concert at a Buckingham Palace party to commemorate the Queen's 115th birthday.

The gig, to be staged in the Palace back garden in front of up to 12 million spitting, snarling, middle-aged punks, is due to take place on Saturday April 21st, and will be beamed live around the world.

The Pistols broke up in 1978, but reformed for tours in 1996, 2002 and 2003, before being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Shame in 2006.

All the original members of the band - John Lydon, Steve Jones, Paul Cook, who is now a cook, and Glenda Fetlock - will be appearing, and it's thought that Her Majesty, Herself, may join the band on stage for a birthday rendition of Her Tune, 'God Save The Queen'.

Lydon, real name Johnny Rotten, now lives by the beach in California, in a house that is an exact replica of Buckingham Palace, such is his regard for the Royals. He even has two sentries outside his gate.

Liz and John met up recently to discuss the arrangements for the party, and to draw up the set list, which is rumoured to include 'Anarchy In The UK', the Queen's own personal favourite.

When BBC Royal correspondent, Jenny Blond asked Her Majesty if she'd like to become the fifth member of the band that made her famous, the Queen fixed the Lydon stare on Blond, spat and rasped:

"One punk in the family is enough, and my husband is that punk!"
