Is Harrison Ford moving to Hervey Bay?

FOR everyone in Hervey Bay who has spent the morning getting ready to welcome Star Wars actor Harrison Ford as their new neighbour, prepare to be disappointed.

An article uploaded on the website KUPR7.com has driven Facebook into a frenzy, as it claims the Hollywood star had made plans to move from the glamour of Los Angeles to Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast.

The article claims Mr Ford, known for his leading role as Indiana Jones and Han Solo in Star Wars, had become tired of the L.A. lifestyle, and he would "rather just live in a place full of real, genuine people".

"I've been to Hervey Bay a couple of times over the years and the people there are real… they're genuine, and yeah every community has its problems but the people there are good, decent people and they care about their community," the article wrote.

"Those are the things I find most important in deciding where to live."

But alas, the article was revealed to be nothing but science fiction when a second story, using the same alleged quotes from Mr Ford, was uploaded by a similar website which claimed the star had made plans to move to Ballarat in New South Wales.

The story has been shared by hundreds, including Hervey Bay One Nation candidate Damian Huxham.
