Local man George Seacroft spent a delightful weekend in glamorous Blackpool and returned to his village as a much younger black man.
The 72-year old pensioner couldn't explain the change and is no adjusting to life as a hunky 29-year old black dude.
"Nobody will believe that it's really me! They all think I'm Denzil Washington or that sexy guy from Criminal Minds. The ladies at the church tea dances think I'm a real stud-muffin!", said George today from his home.
George says he bathed in the 'tropical' waters of Blackpool and thinks that this may have had something to do with his bodily alterations.
"I was bursting for a piss one day and there was no toilets nearby, so I did what any sane person would do, and went into the water to have a little shit and piss. Oh, it was a lovely feeling having the water lapping against my bum and testicles", he said.
Shortly afterwards, George started to notice his wrinkles fading and his skin darkening:
"It was like that Michael Jackson chap - only the other way around and probably completely different", said George.
By the end of the holiday, George had grown 2ft and dropped about 40 years. His wife Edna - who unfortunately decided not to shit in the water at the same time as George, but went back to the hotel instead - says he's like a new man and that they intend to return to Blackpool next week and have a right good shitting session in the water.
"Its like the fountain of youth in many ways. Blackpool is like the lost city of Atlantis or some magical fairytale kingdom, or something", she said.
