Members of the showbiz family of late singer Michael Jackson were guests of honour during a surprise 72-hour visit to South Woodford at the weekend.

Three nephews and one niece of the King of Pop flew in from Hollywood to attend a Sikh wedding.

They were guests of businessman Dave Bance, who lives off George Lane and who is the business partner of Michael’s brother Jermaine Jackson.

Two of Jermaine’s children, Jermajesty and Jaffar, and Genevieve and Randy Jr Jackson, the children of Randy and Alejandra Jackson, wore traditional head scarves at the wedding.

Mr Bance, 50, said: “The Jacksons are like my own family and I was happy that they could make the wedding.”

The family attended the wedding party and a reception and saw a performance from Britain’s Got Talent dance act Signature, who perform Michael Jackson songs like Billie Jean and Thriller.
