A newlywed couple got so drunk on their honeymoon that they agreed to buy their hotel.

Gina Lyons, 33 and Mark Lee, 35, jetted off to Sri Lanka in December after their wedding in June 2017, and a boozy night led to the couple deciding they should take over a rustic beach side hotel for £30,000.

As of July, the pair officially own the hotel - now named Lucky Beach Tangalle - and they have fully embraced the way things have gone.

Gina told the Daily Mail: ''''After finding out that it was £10,000 a year, myself and Mark thought that it would be a brilliant idea to buy it - because we were so drunk.

''Now, almost a year on from our drunken idea, we own the hotel and have started doing the hotel up and making it ours.''
