AS JONATHAN ROSS WOULD SAY I BOUGHT FAMILY A WUWAL WETWEAT

Daily Record

TELEVISION star Jonathan Ross has bought a £1.1million pile in the country. The chat show host and his family have moved from their smart London home to a farmhouse in Swanage on the Dorset coast. Ross, who famously can't say his Rs, has been coming to the town on family holidays for years. And when Cauldron Barn Farm - a Grade II listed property - came on the market, he snapped it up. The 16th Century house, which has six acres of grounds, is one of the area's most prestigious properties. It has its own orchard and stables. A cattle barn has been converted into an indoor swimming pool. The garden leads down to a steam railway. Ross, who has been dubbed the Squire of Swanage, has already been introducing himself to his new neighbours.

Flamboyant Ross and his wife Jane Goldman, who has long, scarlet hair, are sure to raise a few eyebrows in the genteel town, which is popular with retired people. But the extra space will be ideal for their kids Betty, Harvey and Honey, who are keen animal lovers. They already have a dog, cat, iguana, two salamanders, two chinchillas and a number of ferrets.

Jane and the kids are big riding fans and it is thought the stables at the farmhouse were a major reason why the family decided to buy the property. Another attraction was nearby Studland nudist beach, which Ross and his wife love. The move will also allow him to be near an ape called Seamus, which he has adopted at nearby Monkey World in Wool. Vanessa Baume, who runs the Crows Nest pub, half a mile from the farmhouse, said: 'I am always pleased to see new faces. 'I hope Jonathan and his family will visit us. He will be treated just like all my other guests.' Ross, who presents a show on Radio 2 and BBC1's Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, was made an OBE in June. In the same month, he was also voted the most powerful man in broadcasting
