PRESTWICH residents have expressed surprise after being ‘followed’ by a 1980s pop legend.

Twitter users from the town awoke this morning to discover the Culture Club star Boy George had subscribed to their timelines - or ‘followed’ them.

Among those followed were Bury New Road cafe Time For Tea, author Ebba Brooks and the Church Inn pub.

The flurry of followers was enough to get Prestwich folk speculating on why the Kharma Chameleon was showing such an interest in the town, and whether he would be soon moving here.

Sugar and Spices Cakes tweeted: “Intrigued bt the mass following of Prestwich people?!” and Mcr Commuter replied: “Maybe he has Prestwich connections. An auntie?”

Boy George, now aged 53, will perform with Culture Club at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester in December.
