Cocker: Let's not worry about BBC3

Jarvis Cocker has said he thinks people shouldn't be worried about BBC Three making the move to online only.

Pulp frontman and BBC Radio 6 Music presenter Jarvis said he wasn't too bothered about the recently unveiled plans to take BBC Three off TV and stream it online only by autumn 2015.

He told the Radio Times: "Young people don't watch television anyway - it's all about tablets for them so we shouldn't be too bothered."

Asked whether he thought the BBC could struggle later down the line if not enough people were watching TV, he said: "Well, we mustn't worry about that. We should worry about what we do now. If the next generation want the BBC, they will have it."

Jarvis also added that he had no plans to reunite Pulp again, but wasn't ruling out making new music.

He said: "We have done that, we won't do it again.

"But hopefully I will find a way of inflicting any new music on an unsuspecting public."
