Robert: Man gets drunk, legally changes name to “Celine Dion”
Most people have a least one story detailing something stupid they have done after having one too many wobbly-pops. Few of them include changing your name to mimic a Canadian chanteusse, however. This one does.
A man in Staffordshire, England is now legally known as Celine Dion after a night drinking at home.
Tier 4 is the least of my worries – I’ve just got home to some post. Apparently at some point over Christmas I’ve had one too many vinos and legally changed my name to Celine Dion! pic.twitter.com/ZchXWiqhUw

The former Thomas Dodd explains he had spent much of lockdown watching Celine Dion concerts at home, and while watching one particular show on Christmas Eve while getting to know a bottle of champagne, he drunkenly went online and completed a name change application.
“I honestly, hand on heart, don’t remember doing it!” he says. “I wasn’t aware I had done it until I found an envelope in my post. Initially, I had to sit down as I couldn’t believe it – so I then checked my bank which confirmed it all.”
He adds he is in no hurry to change it back and is interested to see what kind of perks will come with being Celine Dion.
