John Lennon once had an encounter with aliens, according to physic Uri Geller. The legendary Beatle, who was murdered in 1980, told Uri he was visited by extra-terrestrials when he was in bed with wife Yoko Ono in 1975. He explained to Uri, who told Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper: "I was asleep in my bed, with Yoko in the Dakota Building.

And suddenly, I wasn't asleep. There was this blazing light, shining through the door. It was like someone was out there with searchlights, or the apartment was on fire. "I leapt out of bed and there were four people. They were little, bug-like creatures, with big bug eyes and little bug mouths and they were scuttling at me like roaches." Lennon insisted he wasn't on drugs and definitely saw the 'aliens'.

He added: "I wasn't high. I've been high a lot of times, and I never saw anything on LSD that was as weird as those f***in' bugs. "I wasn't dreaming and I wasn't tripping."

Lennon also claimed the beings had given him a metal, egg-like object before they left, which he gave to Geller, saying: "It's too weird.

If it's my ticket to another planet, I don't want to go there."
