A 15 year old girl and her pet canary have become unlikely social media sensations and amassed thousands of followers during lockdown.  Georgie Shute and her 'diva' Gloster Canary Barry first started to gain attention after people noticed the bird's unusual bowl style 'haircut'. <br />
<br />
The schoolgirl said that Barry, who she affectionately refers to as 'Birb', went viral after she snapped a picture of him bathed in rainbow sunlight showing off his plumage.   She posted the picture online and was instantly overwhelmed with messages - and her Instagram account 'barrybirb' now has just under 11,000 followers.   SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
