AFTER changing his own name, Elvis Presley has now renamed his house as well.

Mr Presley, 79, was formerly known as Jim Denness until he changed his name by deed poll in 2002 to mark 25 years since the original Elvis passed away.

And now he’s decided to rename his Lower Boddington house Graceland in honour of his hero.

Mr Presley said: “I saw the sign and I knew I had to have it.

“Now my address will say ‘Elvis Presley, Graceland, Lower Boddington.”

Mr Presley is well known around the town’s pubs and other venues, as well as in villages across the area, for miming and dancing along to his hero’s songs in his trademark bejewelled white jumpsuit and sideburns.

His exploits have earned him a cult following locally, while his legal name change brought him to the attention of the national media and a wider audience online.
