The singer and television star was filming top secret scenes for a new television show.

‘DEAD or Alive’ singer Pete Burns was spotted in Barnstaple on Wednesday afternoon filming for a new television series.

The famous face, who also appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2006, was seen being filmed outside Voodoo Body Piercing in Queen Street, Barnstaple.

He was seen wearing a dress and heels walking in and out of the shop, where it is believed he filmed scenes that remain strictly under-wraps.

A Channel Four spokesman confirmed a crew had been filming in North Devon for the new television series of ‘Body Shockers’.

The series will air later this year on E4.
