A GO Fund Me page has been set up for a 90-year-old to help clear his debts after his son duped him into being his guarantor.

The 90-year-old from Darwen appeared on Channel 5’s Evicted! Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords last night where it appeared his son asked him to be his guarantor on a property, who then refused to pay rent.

This left Alan in huge arrears as he struggled on his pension to pay back the money.

Since then, many people came forward requesting to help the pensioner with the amount of £1,600, leading Paul and Deborah Ainsworth at Ainsworth-Lord Estates in Darwen to start a Go Fund Me page.

Mr Ainsworth-Lord said: “We cannot believe the amount of generosity from people wanting to help Alan.  

“Following this evenings episode of "Eviction! Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords"
we have decided to set up this page to make donating easy and to help Alan's situation.

“As a family run business with a large and busy Lettings Dept. we deal with many situations on a daily basis, however this one really did upset our whole team.”

Alan said: "I can't believe he has done this. What's happening to my world here?

"I have been waking up at 3'oclock in the morning because I can't sleep."

Alan's son moved out of the property in the episode, but left many things there, which meant a fee would have to be paid to have them removed.
