David was about to embark on a UK tour, titled β€˜David Gest Is Not Dead But Alive With Soul’ - a reference to the now infamous β€˜Celebrity Big Brother’ mix-up, which saw Tiffany Pollard confuse Gest with Angie Bowie’s ex-husband David.

David won himself thousands of new fans on the show, but was forced to quit due to serious ill-health.
