Pete Burns Unspun

Pete Burns as most of us remember him in his heyday

For those of you who, like me, were around when the wheel was invented and remember the song, 'You spin me right round baby, right round, like a record baby, right round, right round ...", well you'll recall that the leading vocalist was Pete Burns.

Well Pete sort of disappeared off the radar, and then resurfaced on the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother recently, causing gasps of disbelief due to his outlandish appearance and the freakish amount of cosmetic surgery he had undergone.

Well, for all of you who were fans of Pete and his er, train-wreck appeal, good news: he's back in a documentary on Living TV on
November 30th at 9PM, entitled 'Pete Burns Unspun'.

According to worldofwonder.net:

After his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, his career was re-launched and primed for success. But within months of finishing the show, Burns would see his world unravel, finding him fighting bankruptcy, his boyfriend and the legal system. After several arrests for threatening and violent behaviour involving incidents with his then estranged boyfriend, he was jailed for two months for breaking bail conditions. This documentary follows Burns from his first day of release, when he is ordered by the courts to reside with an unknown obsessive fan responsible for bailing him out, to the gradual process of picking up the pieces of his shattered life.
And here's a little taster, thanks to Perez.

Can't wait.
