My wife has bought me a pub for Christmas. Or rather, she has allowed me to buy one for myself. Soon I will be able to drink at cost price and entertain customers and friends in my front room. What’s more, I will actually be paid for enjoying myself instead of shelling out to visit other people’s pubs…”

George East has had a wide and varied career, which, before he started his life behind bars, included being a pickled onion manufacturer, private detective, TV and radio presenter…and the world’s only professional bed tester (a position he won while running his pub).
