In an attempt to rebuild his public image, notorious paedophile Gary Glitter, real name Paul Francis Gadd, wants to join The Church of Scientology.
Glitter, has been intrested in the wacky alien based religion for a while and has been reading about its strange beliefs on the internet.
A source said "Gary likes the idea of been immortal and of having been reincarnated and living many lives, and thinks it would be good for his public image to be associated with the many high profile celebrities involved in Scientology."
Scientology has many famous believers in Hollywood such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta and even in Britian it has attracted followers such as Bob Geldof's daughter Peaches Geldof and Amy Winehouse's on-off boyfriend, the ex-junkie Blake Fielder-Civil, who is thinking of joining the Church when his court-imposed parole finishes.
The source said "Scientology love getting celebrities as members as it raises the Churches profile and gives it a touch of glamour in the eyes of the general public."
