FRASIER star Kelsey Grammer is buying a holiday home in the Hamptons, New York - despite successfully suing his previous landlord in the elite area after nearby building work made the house unlivable.

But the charismatic actor hasn't been put off and reportedly forked out $8.45 million (GBP4.7 million) for the spacious home in Bridgehampton.

He tells the New York Post, "It'll be the first home that we've actually bought in the Hamptons.

"We hope to spend at least a couple of months there each summer."
