Beloved adult entertainer Johnny Rockard has been outed today by the Mirror as leading a double life as a crypto-fascist. Under the pseudonym “John Langley”, the 49-year-old is not only the vice chairman of Ukip in Bristol, but is also running as a candidate in the local elections there next month.

However, he has insisted he has “nothing to be embarrassed about”, telling the paper:

Ukip is a working class party which appeals to working class people.

Normal people go to the pub and enjoy a pint and then probably go home and enjoy adult entertainment. What people do in their private lives is really up to them.”

Rockard – who, as well as performing, is also a “talent scout, manager and promoter” – has been in the business for more than 30 years, and is understandably proud of his entrepreneurship over that period. However, he has caused controversy before – in January 2014, the University of the West of England threatened him and porn actor Xzena with legal action for shooting a porn film on campus without permission.

I'm a mole, innit.
