POPULAR DJ George Bowie has warned his fans he believes his Facebook account may have been hacked after his followers were sent messages about a competition.

The radio star took to his Twitter to advise that if anyone was receiving a message from him regarding a competition, it was most likely a scam.

In a statement, Bowie said: "We still don't know what's happened to my Facebook. It's either been hacked or cloned, maybe both! Either way please, please, please do not reply to any messages saying you have won a competition, it is not from me. Please RT so no one gets scammed. This is the post."

He then joked: "So hopefully everyone is now aware that there is no competition on my Facebook page and no prizes, it's a scam. My wife has gone total Liam Neeson in Taken over this."

Bowie best known for his GBX anthems show on the Glasgow-based station Clyde One. 

The DJ has more than 160,000 followers on his page who kept entertained with live DJ sets during lockdown.
