In a statement released through his solicitors today, disgraced former glam rocker Gary Glitter has announced that he is renouncing his old ways and has found God.

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd and who has served prison sentences both in the UK and Southeast Asia for child sex offences, has announced that with immediate effect, he is to move to Saudi Arabia and is converting to Islam.

The aging rocker said, "After deep consideration, I have come to the conclusion that Saudi Arabia is the right homeland for me, and that the Muslim faith is the right spiritual message. Also, what I like to do is legal out there, so I'm sorted!"

A spokesman at London's Finsbury Park mosque confirmed that Mr Glitter had officially converted to the Islamic faith, and has taken the Arabic name Kiddi Al-Shagum.
