The Happy Mondays and Black Grape lead singer claims he was not tripping on magic mushrooms or other hallucinogenics when a 20ft by 10ft flying saucer appeared over him.
The self-confessed drug addled rocker made the claim to This Morning presenters Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield when he appeared on the show coincidentally on World UFO Day today.
He said: "We were filming in South America at the time. I remember I got back to my house at about 5am and I saw a craft outside my house.
"It was huge. Around 20ft by 10ft. It looked plastic - like a toy. I didn't believe it at first. I thought our production team were playing a trick on me. But nobody else saw it."
He said it was gathering clouds around it as it silently flew.He added: "As it moved really slowly across the field, it gathered even more cloud around it but it didn't make a sound." Schofield asked him why he hadn't snapped a picture of the mystery craft. He replied: "I don't know why I didn't film it or grab the wife. "But it's annoying when you have people like pilots and military officials who usually make great witnesses, but if they tell you they've seen a UFO, nobody believes them. "We are not alone in this universe. "Maybe I was hallucinating but I am not making it up. I didn't take any magic mushrooms or anything."
