Country music veteran Billy Ray Cyrus has been left red-faced after a prankster tricked him into re-tweeting a picture of shamed British entertainer Sir Jimmy Savile on Twitter.com.

Many of Cyrus' followers were left horrified this week when the star shared a snap of Savile, who was unmasked as a serial paedophile following his death in 2011, on his Twitter page.

The user had sent a message to Cyrus claiming the image was of his "granddad" who is a "huge fan" and would "love" a re-tweet from the star.

The picture, which went out to Cyrus' 1.7 million followers, was later removed from the site and the singer reposted a link to an article about the prank.
