After working with him on 'Rock School'...

Kiss loony Gene Simmons may have been re-commissioned for the second series of 'Rock School', but not eveybody is enamoured of the face-painted glam-rocker.

The bassist proved a triumphant success on the upcoming television series - which sees him teaching posh classical music students how to raawk. The 13-year-old boffins eventually open a show for Motorhead and a jolly good time is had by all. Oh shit, I gave away the ending. Sorry about that.

Channel 4 were so chuffed with the results they have ordered a second series before the first one has even been broadcast.

But the 'Lick It Up' star (euw! as those American girlies might say,) could be forgiven for turning his nose up - as Channel 4's entertainment boss reportedly remarked, "If I said Simmons wasn't an idiot, I'd be lying."

There'll be tears before bedtime. Let's just hope Gene's wearing waterproof mascara.
