Punk icon John Lydon has spoken about being a full time carer for wife Nora as she battles Alzheimer’s disease.

The former Sex Pistols singer, better known by punk moniker Johnny Rotten, has opened up about looking after his partner after 40 years of marriage.

Speaking to the Mirror, the 64-year-old said: “Nora has Alzheimer’s… I am her full-time carer and I won’t let anyone mess up with her head.

“For me the real person is still there. That person I love is still there every minute of every day and that is my life. It’s unfortunate that she forgets things, well, don’t we all?”

The couple married in 1979, with Rotten becoming step-dad to Nora’s daughter, the The Slits singer Ari Up, who was just six years younger than the her mum’s new husband.
