After weeks of speculation, Men Behaving Badly star Neil Morrissey has finally been named as the new owner of the historic Brown's Hotel in Laugharne, West Wales. Morrissey reportedly beat off competition from the likes of James Bond star Pierce Brosnan and Rolling Stone Mick Jagger to snatch the grade-II listed watering hole, the favourite haunt of legendary poet Dylan Thomas, for £670,000. The new owner is no stranger to owning pubs in the region. He already co-owns the Three Mariners Inn, also in Laugharne, and the Hurst House Hotel in nearby Pendine. Current landlord Tommy Watts said he was not concerned about the famous TV bad boy taking the reigns at the pub in around five weeks. "He comes here quite often and he is well known in the town," he said. "I think he will make a good landlord. He is very liked." Snifter thinks Morrissey is the ideal candidate for the job. As the voice of Bob the Builder, he should be handy if repair work is needed to the 270-year-old pub.
