ONE visitor to Dismaland got a surprise when she turned around and saw two members of Duran Duran behind her.

Michelle Harvey from Hutton visited the Banksy-curated exhibition with her husband Clint, when she spotted John Taylor and Nick Rhodes from the group.

Duran Duran formed in 1978, and since the 1980s have had 14 singles in the UK singles chart top 10.

Michelle said: “I turned around and thought they looked familiar so I just clicked my phone.

“It looked as though they had just arrived. It is nice to see some big celebrities coming to Weston.”

Members of Duran Duran have not been the first celebrities to arrive at Dismaland. Comedian Russell Brand had a look around the back, while hip hop artist Mos Def put in a surprise performance. Actor Jack Black and Grantley Marshall, aka Daddy G of Massive Attack, also visited.
