Sir Elton John has never been one not to share his opinions on anything from Madonna to Lily Allen. Now he's targeting all reality TV stars saying they should be murdered.

66 year old Elton believes those drawn to such television formats are just fame hungry 'nightmare people' and the world would be a far better place without them.

Speaking on BBC World satellite radio, Elton said: 'With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated.'

He continued: 'They want fame whatever the consequences, and they'll do anything to get there.'

In the same interview, after tearing all reality TV stars to shreds he moved on to Lindsay Lohan who he believes wanted fame no matter what the cost, and that her spotlight-enthused family were a major part of her downfall:

'Lindsay Lohan, unfortunately, who had a great career as an actress and as a recording artist, she had a hit album...

'Suddenly, everything has fallen to bits because of the drugs. Her parents were a nightmare.

'She has become a victim of success and she wants success, no matter how much (it costs).'
