We fell in love with Bryan the moment we laid eyes on him. And it seems a certain celebrity couple have too, so much so that they've adopted the cute chimpanzee. But which famous pair have a new family member? Bryan's adoptive parents are Gemma Atkinson and Marcus Bent, pictured here visiting Bryan at his home, Monkey World near Dorset. The couple adopted Bryan after he was rescued from Cancun, Mexico last year, and are also campaigning a rescue bid for another chimp named Coco.Marcus Bent 05.08Marcus Bent and Bryan Gemma said: "We have adopted Bryan, who was being kept by a beach photographer. "We are delighted to help out. This is a brilliant cause that Jim (Monkey World co-founder Jim Cronin) started and we only hope that other people jump on board and adopt. "It's as little as £30 to adopt a primate at Monkey World for a year and to help possibly change an ape or monkey's life. "The next challenge is to get Coco back from Mexico, which we are actively supporting." Gem has such a big heart she contacted Monkey World herself after seeing them on TV in April.
