British actress Kathy Burke's proudest moment was when she told Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten to "f**k off".

The NIL BY MOUTH star was a huge fan of the punk pioneers, and knew an abrupt expletive would impress the flame-haired rocker far more than a friendly greeting.

She recalls, "I would hang around outside the (London rock venue) Hope and Anchor smoking - I was too young to get in.

"I strolled past Johnny Rotten once. He went, 'Hello little girl' and I went 'F**k off'. And he laughed and that was it.

"I was delighted."
