  • Oscar the guinea pig lands starring role in a classic!

    Malcolm Hindle

    A GUINEA pig could be heading for stardom after being featured in a new book!

    Becky Hayes, 24, runs a social media site Facebook page called ‘Oh My Guinea’ on which she promotes guinea pig welfare issues and posts cute pictures of her three guinea pigs to make people smile. The site is followed by more than 15,000 people.

    Becky was invited to London with her pet guinea pig Oscar, for a photoshoot by Bloomsbury Books to star in their latest Guinea Pig Classics book, Romeo & Juliet.

    She said: “Oscar and I had to travel from our home in Southport all the way to London, where we met with the lovely Bloomsbury crew and took part in a photo-shoot taken for the hilariously appropriate role of the Prince of Verona. I’ve got photos of the journey and the actual shoot, as well as the actual book itself, which is being sold in bookshops worldwide as of now!

    “I set up the page after Oscar was diagnosed with a tumour in 2015, and I wanted to share his story. Two years on and he's still going strong, and being a celebpiggy hasn’t changed him!”
