SEX Pistols actors Louis Partridge and Anson Boon yearn for a Holiday in the Sun — but get the icy sea instead.
Louis, 17, is playing hellraising bass guitarist Sid Vicious and Anson, 21, is Johnny Rotten in director Danny Boyle’s TV drama about the infamous punk band.

But the pair ditched their safety pins and took time for a dip in the English Channel at Dover, Kent.
Louis, in black, and Anson, in red, looked freezing as they braved the water at a bone-chilling 8C.
The band’s only album was Never Mind the Bs, Here’s the Sex Pistols.
Based on the memoir of Sex Pistol bassist Steve Jones, Danny Boyle has described the Sex Pistols emergence in the mid-70s as the moment that British society and culture changed for ever.

But Johnny Rotten himself isn’t so sweet on the film – who branded the biopic “disrespectful s**t” amid threats to take legal action against its production.
Lydon, 65, told The Sunday Times: “I think that’s the most disrespectful s**t I’ve ever had to endure.
“I mean, they went to the point to hire an actor to play me but what’s the actor working on? Certainly not my character. It can’t go anywhere else [but court].”
