Jesus impersonator Kevin Lee Light has become a cult figure in LA for wandering the streets dressed in a white smock.

A video of Lee Light meeting Snoop Dogg has almost 500,000 views on YouTube while the rock band, Aerosmith, wrote a song in 2012 called Street Jesus after lead singer Steven Tyler met Lee Light.

Lee Light has also been featured in articles by The Huffington Post and the celebrity gossip website TMZ.

Mother flew Lee Light over to London this week and has put him up in Shoreditch House.

In other Jesus-related news, Anomaly London has created a "Sexy Jesus" calendar, which is available to view and buy online, and features a model dressed as Jesus and striking sexy poses.
