Gary Glitter, the seventies pop star turned paedophile, returned to the UK for the first time in over ten years today and immediately penned a deal with makers of failing reality show Big Brother.
"It's a good career move for me" said Glitter "I see what it has done for Barrymore, Jade Goody and Les Dennis and I think to myself - I want some of that. I hear the show itself is ten years old so you know I am right in there. I wanted to make amends in the eyes of the British Public - it was either this or go and find Maddie.'
Gary's agent defended his client saying 'Gary has been misunderstood. When he took his laptop into PC world for repair he didn't expect them to be able to fix it, far less find his secret stash. He is the victim in all of this really.'
A spokesman said 'We will do ANYTHING for ratings, as this move proves.'
