Look who’s back! Tito Jackson in his Wolves tracksuit next to the Man on the Oss statue in Wolverhampton city centre

Jackson 5 star Tito Jackson returned to Wolverhampton as he continues his hunt for houses in the area.

Clad in a Wolves tracksuit, the 64-year-old Motown star wandered around the city centre before visiting Molineux – where he walked down the tunnel and sat down on the bench.

WATCH: 'I wish my album was doing as well as Wolves!'

Tito Jackson visits Molineux

Tito stayed at the Mount Hotel and dined at the Memsahib restaurant in Compton during his trip this week.

Tito, one of pop legend Michael Jackson’s older brothers, said: “I’ve been wanting to come back to see another game and will hopefully next time I’m in town.

“Wolves have done great this year and I’m looking forward to them getting promoted. Wolves ay we!

“I think the fans have done a tremendous job supporting their local team.


“Being an entertainer is no different to being an athlete. People screaming their name gives you an extra incentive.

“I wish [his album Tito Time] was doing as well as the Wolves – but it is doing well.


“Maybe next time [Wolves] just might let me on the grass – they won’t even let me touch it.

"I’ve been pretty busy since my last visit and when I came back to the UK I decided I’d better come back to Wolverhampton and see what’s going on.”

Tito’s unlikely link with Wolverhampton comes through a member of his management team, Lawson Slater, who lives in the city.

The star said he is still searching for a property around the city and is considering whether to rent or buy – telling the Express & Star he is ‘thinking very strongly’ and ‘looking very hard’ about the prospect of a UK home.
