Status Quo or The Who? Hunt launched for Rick Parfitt's stunt double


Status Quo star Rick Parfitt has revealed he used a "double" for some scenes in his movie debut - who is actually black.

The guitarist - whose film Bula Quo has its premiere in London - said they got in a replacement after he hurt himself during filming in Fiji

Despite his entirely different skin colour, the film crew simply popped on a wig to give the impression it was the veteran rocker. However the band failed to get his name and want him to get in touch so they can give him a copy of the film.
