Hollywood star Antonio Banderas has been ordered to demolish part of his luxury $10 million (GBP5 million) mansion in Spain because it had been built illegally by the previous owner. The Mask of Zorro star - who is married to actress Melanie Griffith - lost a court bid earlier this week (ends25Jan08) after a judge in Malaga, southern Spain, ruled his beach-front property should never have won planning permission. The decision was made as part of a government crackdown on illegal homes after officials discovered local councillors had been unlawfully reclassifying land in exchange for financial bribes. Banderas must now knock down a 300 square foot (27.8 square metre) area of his home within the next eight weeks so that it complies with the country's laws. The Latin hunk, who bought the property near Marbella in 1997, is expected to appeal the ruling.
