Kasabian's Sergio stuns The One Show's Alex Jones and Roman Kemp with bleak comment

The One Show's Alex Jones and Roman Kemp were left speechless after Kasabian's Sergio Pizzorno dropped a grim comment about death amidst a light-hearted segment on Friday 28 June.

Sergio, the 43 year old rock star, graced Friday night's episode alongside celebrities Paul Whitehouse and Gabby Logan. With Glastonbury vibes in the air, he was quizzed about Kasabian's previous gig at the festival, to which he humorously claimed to have "no recollection" of it.

Chatting outside the BBC studios before his set, host Alex probed him on the success of his new album, Happenings, cheekily enquiring: "You've had album out a week today. You've had six number-one albums already. Is this lucky number seven?"

Sergio, deadpan, responded: "I hope so, but who knows. Let's hope no one dies," clasping his hands as if in prayer. "That's always the worst thing. Someone can die and then you're just finished."

The awkward silence that followed among the guests was tangible until Alex remarked: "Well, that's very dark", reports the Mirror.

Paul couldn't help but crack up laughing, while Roman quickly interjected: "And it's a Friday show so I'm going to change it."

This comes amid rumours that Kasabian might be the surprise act at Glastonbury this year.

This year, fans have been buzzing with speculation that the iconic 90s band Kasabian might be the surprise act at Glastonbury. The rumour mill went into overdrive when William Hill stopped taking bets on the band making an appearance at the festival next week.

Other potential secret set performers rumoured to make a surprise appearance include Pulp, Kings of Leon, The Killers and Harry Styles.

However, Kasabian has announced they'll be hitting the road for a tour in July this year. Many are speculating that they could use Glastonbury as a warm-up gig before heading off to Edinburgh on 3rd July.

The band, which was formed in 1997, consists of singer and guitarist Sergio Pizzorno, bassist Chris Edwards, drummer Ian Matthews and guitarist Tim Carter.

They're best known for their hit songs like Fire, Underdog, Shoot The Runner and Where Did All The Love Go?

In 2023, the Foo Fighters made a surprise appearance in a secret set slot. They were listed on the lin eup as The Churnups, but eagle-eyed fans noticed that no such band existed.


Some then predicted the rock band's appearance after Dave Grohl posted a message on Instagram thanking fans for their support and for 'churning up these emotions together'.

In the past, we've seen surprise performances from big names like Lady Gaga, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand at Glastonbury. So, it's no shocker that fans are anticipating a major band to fill one of the TBA slots this year.

The Pyramid stage will be graced by Coldplay, Dua Lipa and SZA as headliners this year. It's a first for both Dua Lipa and SZA to headline the Somerset festival, but not for the legendary Coldplay who have performed there four times before.
