Gary Glitter is set to make a spectacular comeback into public life - by opening a children's nursery.
From his secluded mansion in the hilltops overlooking the town Glitter (real name Paul Madd) said "I stare out of my window looking at the children and feel there is someting missing inside them. I think we all know what that something is."
Madd hopes to open up early in the autumn and he has been busy trying to recruit former 70's glam rockers as nursery assistants. So far none have wanted to be involved with his scheme.
Steve Priest from Sweet said: "The man's a menace and should be strung up by his bollocks."
A council spokesman told me that being a convicted paedophile is not necessarily a bar from opening a nursery. "He has human rights like the rest of us and we wish him every success with his new venture."
Everyone else we spoke to wanted him to drown in acid.
