Rowan Atkinson, aka Mr Bean, has found a buyer for his Oxfordshire house after 18 months.

The Old Rectory in Waterperry was first put up for sale at £2.9 million in 2015. But although the Grade II-listed five-bedroom home, in six acres had been beautifully renovated to include a fitness complex with an indoor pool, plus an outdoor tennis court, it failed to attract sufficient interest.

The Blackadder star, 61, dropped the price to £2,425,000 and listed the 18th-century property with Carter Jonas, which did the trick.

Atkinson now lives mostly at his £4.65 million London home with his actress girlfriend, Louise Ford, 32.
