A couple got so drunk on honeymoon in Sri Lanka that they woke to find they had agreed to buy the hotel.
Gina Lyons, 33, and Mark Lee, 35, had checked in and struck up a friendship with some of the staff, spending their first night drinking rum on the beach with one of the bartenders, who told them that the lease on the hotel was almost up.
Twelve glasses later, the couple decided to take it on for three years at a cost of £30,000, despite living in a “tiny flat” near Croydon in south London and still paying off their wedding.
