Pete Burns - the documentary
By DEREK ROBINS
ZANY Dead Or Alive star Pete Burns is to be the subject of a bizarre new fly-on-the-wall TV documentary.
Living TV has been filming the cross-dressing Celebrity Big Brother housemate, 46, since he was released on bail in June after spending seven weeks behind bars when he was charged with harassing ex-boyfriend Jason Peters.
Clare Hollywood, Living TV head of commissioning, told us: “Our cameras have had total access to his extraordinary and bizarre life. It’s incredible footage of him trying to rebuild his life.
“One bail condition was that he couldn’t live within the M25 so he stayed with his crazed number one fan in Plymouth for a while. We see their first meeting and not long afterwards the parting of the ways.
“Pete is also seen being electronically tagged and visiting his plastic surgeon for a Botox touch up!”
Burns says in the four-parter to be shown in November: “I should have a very nice life right now. Instead I’ve got no pot to p*** in and no window to throw it out of.”
The singer is due to face trial at Southwark Crown Court on September 25 on harassment charges.The Sun, 13/09/06.
