TV actor planning move to Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight's charms have persuaded a television actor to give up the city lifestyle and move to the island.

Stuart Manning, who played the character of Russ Owen in Channel 4's teen soap opera Hollyoaks and also appeared in a series of ITV's celebrity survival show I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, is looking to buy a home on the Isle of Wight.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, he said whenever he is away from the island, he cannot wait to return.

Describing the Isle of Wight as "relaxing", "beautiful" and "peaceful", he said: "I feel like I can do whatever I want here.

"It's nice for my friends and family to come down as well."

Manning is the latest television star to be captivated by the Isle of Wight.

Former Coronation Street actor Geoffrey Hughes told the Southern Daily Echo he has turned down a return to the Manchester-based soap as he is happy on the Isle of Wight.
