    Chris de Burgh has spent nearly 30,000 on buying the "chest bursting" Alien from the classic sci-fi film.
    The latex dummy was seen bursting from John Hurt's chest in the 1979 movie.

    De Burgh paid 29,875 at a London auction for the piece which auctioneers Bonhams had estimated would fetch around 12,000, reports the BBC.

    Frantic bidding for the lot, described by Bonhams as "an iconic piece of science fiction film history", more than doubled the price.

    The singer said: "I bought it because I believed it was a defining moment in cinema history for its sheer horror.
