For some years now sightings of Elvis Presley have been thin on the ground. One time there was scarcely a day that went by when the King wasn't spotted somewhere or other.
But all that is about to change as, according to our top star gazer, there is a race of Elvis looky likeys about to appear throughout the world. Astronomer Sir Patrick Moore explains:
"Well, back in the sixties a race of alien beings visited Earth, hell-bent on conquering the human race. Elvis was on the TV so they based their Earth personas on him and since then; they have been 'sleeping' in cells all over the world.
But now their time has come and they will be emerging from their hiding any day now"
Our reporter pressed the xylophone maestro for more details but he would not be drawn.
"I've been told to keep schtum by their leader Col. Tom Parker, so I'm saying nothing" he told us rather cryptically.
NASA have pooh-poohed Moore's claims as being completely radio rental and are suggesting that all that squinting through telescopes has sent Sir Patrick gaga.
To be on the safe side though, if you see any Elvis looky likeys be sure and tell the authorities and why not get a picture of them on your mobile and send it to us.
