From The Sun:

Kieran Miller, 19, has bought nearly 300,000 followers to boost his profile on the social networking site, at a cost of nearly £300.

And the unemployed teen says he has no regrets about squandering taxpayers’ cash – as he believes it will boost his chances of hitting the big time.

Talking about the jaw-dropping purchases on specialist website, he said: “I’m doing whatever it takes to become a star.

“Now that I have 350,000 Twitter followers, more people can see me, so people who wouldn’t follow me before will follow me now.

“Twitter is a massive part of my life now.”

But Kieran, from South Shields, Tyne and Wear, says he has no idea what he wants to become famous for.

He said: “All I want to be is famous. And I don’t care how. Ideally, I’d like to be the next big reality TV star.”

“I don’t know if I can sing, dance or act or nothing, but it probably won’t stop me.

“I’ve been dreaming of this since I was 16, and nothing will stop me.”
