Ray Winstone has revealed that he won't be closing down the pub at the bottom of his garden and hinted his wife had convinced him to keep it.

The Sexy Beast actor, 56, said that he had abandoned plans to demolish the boozer he has at home, according to the Daily Star.

He said: "I was going to knock it down as we are getting a bit old now. We should be responsible...

"And it's like a Tardis as you find yourself in there at 5am! And then there ends up being a fight about who is going to sing the next song on karaoke."

Ray also suggested his wife hadn't been keen on calling last orders at the Winstones' pub, saying: "I had a chat with the wife about knocking it down, then decided not to."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
