This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were left in shock as Shaun Ryder spoke of his terrifying encounters with aliens on Wednesday, 29 September.
The 59 year old singer was adamant about his previous extraterrestrial experiences as he sat on the couch to reflect on when he worked as a delivery boy before rising to fame.
"We saw this thing zigzagging about," he said. "When I started seeing other things, I nearly went to get things checked out because when you start hallucinating on things, you could be losing your eyesight."
The Happy Mondays star went on to joke that the bizarre sighting was "long before my encounters with hallucinogenic".
As Holly and Phil sat there in disbelief, Shaun explained that he had a second alien sighting when making a documentary on UFOs back in 2013.
He said: "I looked out in my back garden and over my apple tree was this big plastic air fix looking wobbly thing that looked like it was hanging in the air on strings because it was moving.
"I'm slapping myself stupid," he continued, adding that he initially thought the production crew were playing a trick on him.
A baffled Phil replied: "The way you describe it sounds like the Del Boy of aliens, some ramshackle air fix thing around a tree.
"How did that get from the far-flung corners of the universe?"
Shaun replied: "To me, it looked like it was made out of plastic."
Some viewers were equally as sceptical about Shaun's alien encounters as Phil.
One person tweeted: "Shaun Ryder explaining how a UFO landed in his back garden… seems legit #ThisMorning."
Another wrote: "This is TV gold. A phone in about UFO's and Aliens with Shaun Ryder, couldn't make this up. #thismorning."
A third said: "A phone in about alien sightings with Shaun Ryder is peak tv @thismorning."
A fourth echoed: "Of all of the people to get on #thismorning to talk about UFOs, they get Shaun Ryder."
The Daily Star has appointed what it describes as the world's first dedicated extraterrestrial affairs correspondent to cover "the biggest beat in journalism".
The publication launched an online series entitled Spaced Out, featuring interviews from the likes of Shaun Ryder and magician Uri Geller about their alien encounters.
