A ‘absolute brick s***house’ spotted holidaying in Devon turned out to be boxer Tyson Fury.
The 6ft 9ins former world heavyweight champion was spotted by adoring fans in Babbacombe, Torquay, on Thursday.
Staying at the picturesque Manor Inn in Galmpton, fight fan Darren Watts from Brixham, said: “He is visiting family in Torbay, staying in his camper van.
“He was absolutely brilliant, a real gent. He was happy to pose for pictures and chat. He told us he’s up to 27 stone at the moment.

“A lot of people probably wouldn’t have recognised him but we did. He really was an absolute gentleman.
“Who’d have thought a world champion would just drop in to your local for a pint?”
Other fans took to Twitter to express their shock at seeing the mountain of a man.

And Alfie Jackson added that he was the “nicest bloke you could wish to meet”.
Fury vacated the WBA, WBO, and IBO titles last year following an ongoing medical investigation, personal issues and two cancellations of the Klitschko rematch.
Klitschko is due to meet Anthony Joshua in their Wembley world heavyweight title fight on April 29.
