Sexy Blur heart-throb Alex James is throwing away his bass guitar in favour of a pair of thick-rimmed spectacles.

The handsome Out of Time performer will be making a guest appearance as a science presenter on a show called LIFE ON MARS on Britain's THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL.

The programme considers the evidence that suggests there is life on other planets, with the hard-drinking musician grilling DR COLLIN PHILINGER about his views on extra-terrestrial beings.
