Following the sad death of Pete Burns, the former pop star’s final tweet has taken on a chilling new twist…
His management released a statement on Twitter saying:
All of his family and friends are devastated by the loss of our special star.
He was a true visionary, a beautiful talented soul, and he will be missed by all who loved and appreciated everything he was and all of the wonderful memories the has left us with.

Counting down the days…..

However, Burns was left virtually unrecognisable from his music days following numerous plastic surgeries and had recently appeared on the Channel 5 show, Celebrity Botched Up Bodies.
