Shaun Ryder said the reason he’s on TV all the time is to entice young people to discover his music.

The head of Happy Mondays and Black Grape will join a new series of the popular Family Channel 4 series this week, in which he faces four strangers who must find out which of them is related to the family. older brother.

Later this year, he’ll be joining E4’s Celebrity Culinary School, alongside Kerry Katona and cleaning queen Kim Woodburn, and he’ll also begin filming another Celebrity Gogglebox show next month.

But for him, Ryder says, it’s still all about the music – and he’ll be celebrating his 60th in August by performing at carnival festivals.

“There’s a reason I always follow up on the phone – because every time we go and do one of these things, the youth will watch it and go, ‘Who is he?’ And after they finished watching the show, they downloaded all your albums and then they showed up at concerts. “

He says he is now recognized by kids who only know him through reality TV.

“You pretty much get that, someone will say, ‘Oi, Gogglebox.’ And 12 years ago it was, “You come from the jungle.”

But while he enjoys appearing on Gogglebox with bandmate Bez, he says he’ll never stop performing. “You don’t retire – unless your prosthetic hip goes.

Look at Mick and Keith and Paul McCartney and all the things that I grew up with. Talk to Tom Jones! As long as you enjoy doing it and you can do it, then go ahead. ”

Over the years, his bands have had many setbacks – but they always come back together.

“There’s a lot of bullshit going on in bands, it’s just ridiculous nonsense and jealousy. But most people get back together because they realize, look at, there’s something to it about finance.

“If I could go on stage with my brother (bass, Paul) and Mondays and we still enjoy ourselves, from all the differences we had, and then anyone can do it too.”

He says he loves performing more than ever these days.

“With both Black Grapes and Mondays, it’s better than ever being back in the day. We all have kids now, and we’re all grown ups. Sex and drugs are gone and it’s just rock and roll. As I get older, I am more comfortable with myself and I enjoy playing shows and music. So I enjoy that more than ever.”

Shaun says that Bez is still getting through her “dangerous” phase in Dancing on Ice.

“He was in bed for about three weeks. He’s 50 years old and uses muscles he probably hasn’t used since he was 15.”

Is that another reality show Shaun will be looking at?

“I’ve got a prosthetic hip and very soon I’ll have another, so that’s completely out of the question,” he explained, sounding relieved.

During Tuesday’s Fame in the Family show, Shaun, from Salford, was delighted to delve into her family tree. He knows more about his mother Linda than his father Derek.

“We all know each other in Carrolls, and they all live close to each other. But my dad is a lot, my grandfather Ryder has 15 siblings and I don’t know any of them. Dad was not close to his family. “

And how does he feel at the end of the show when he finds out who he is related to?

He laughed: “It twisted my melon.”
