Father who won compensation after his dream holiday was ruined is a convicted drug dealer Jay Mortimore was jailed for three years after being found with 1,000 LSD tablets when police searched him believing he may have been carrying fake money The father of a family awarded thousands of pounds in compensation after they were forced to cancel their holiday abroad because fellow passengers refused to let them sit together is a convicted drug dealer. Jay Mortimore was jailed for three years after being found with 1,000 LSD tablets when police searched him believing he may have been carrying fake money. When they raided his home in Exeter, Devon, they discovered £2,000 of drug money hidden in his freezer and a lethal knuckleduster stashed in his car. He was hauled to court and sent to prison - a sentence that he claims helped him turn his life around and transformed him into 'one of the top heavyweight cage fighters in the country'. Speaking to The Sun today, he said: 'I am a hard worker and I have nothing to do with drugs any more. I just work and provide for my family. pre bonded hair'In 2008 I went to prison and I have done my time and I was away from my family for 14 months. 'Of course, I regret it, but it is in my past. 'I changed my life around. I fought across the world and had major sponsorship deals. I have imparted my knowledge to train others. There is no way I would have been able to do that if I was still into drugs. 'I could not have done anything like that if I was still involved in crime.' The 35-year-old was yesterday celebrating after being awarded more than £4,000 in compensation following the cancellation of his family's half-term break to Tenerife. He and wife Carolyn had spent £2,300 to head to the sun with children Brayden, seven, and Ryley, 12 - only to be kicked off their flight because there was not enough space. The 35-year-old was celebrating after being awarded more than £4,000 in compensation following the cancellation of his half-term break to Tenerife. He and wife Carolyn spent £2,300 to head to the sun with children Brayden, seven, and Ryley, 12 - only to be kicked off their flight because there was not enough space

They were initially denied full compensation for their holiday last week - but EasyJet and Thomas Cook made a U-turn and offered them nearly twice the original cost of the getaway. It came after the family suffered the heartbreak of arriving back from the airport after their failed trip to find that their beloved dog had to be put down. Following the publicity and a massive outpouring of public sympathy, the travel giants agreed to give the Mortimores £3,640 plus £600 worth of holiday vouchers. Mr Mortimore, 35, said: 'It's not the holiday we wanted, but they have done us a good deal and given us back more than we paid. 'We are still angry, especially as the boys have gone through it hard this week no matter how much money they give us. remy hair extensions'It's all gone crazy since we shared our story. It's still rubbish what we've been through but we're trying to make the most out of it. They were initially denied full compensation for their holiday last week - but EasyJet and Thomas Cook made a U-turn and offered them nearly twice the original cost of the getaway Brayden, who was hoping to go on his first foreign holiday, and Ryley, watch as their flight departs without them 'Later in the year we may use the holiday vouchers to go away for a long weekend or maybe we might have a small holiday next year in Spain.' EasyJet had initially defended its policy of overbooking flights to limit the effect of no-shows, but later performed a U-turn. A spokesman said: 'We protect families from any overbooking, so this situation should simply not have occurred. 'We should have been able to seat the Mortimore family together to enable them to travel and they will be fully compensated for their experience. 'EasyJet does everything it can to seat families together and has a sophisticated algorithm which seats families together more than 99 per cent of the time. 'On the rare occasion where this hasn't been possible we'll ask passengers onboard to move to accommodate families with young children. It is very rare that passengers aren't prepared to do so although this was the case on this flight.' Thomas Cook added in a statement: 'Once we became aware we contacted them to offer our full support. 'We have reassured the family that we are taking this matter seriously, and that we have asked EasyJet to investigate why this occurred. 'We're pleased the family has accepted a full refund as well as the payment they are entitled to from EasyJet for denied boarding. As a further gesture of goodwill we have given them a voucher towards their next holiday, for which they are very grateful.'

Caitlyn Jenner's docu-series has officially been cancelled after two seasons. The 66-year-old confirmed weeks of rumours that I Am Cait is coming to an end on her Twitter page on Tuesday. 'After 2 amazing seasons of @IAmCait, it's time for the next adventure,' Caitlyn shared. 'Thank you E! & thank you to the best girlfriends I could ask for!' Coming to an end: Caitlyn Jenner (pictured last month) confirmed on Tuesday that I Am Cait has been cancelled after two seasons The news doesn't come as a surprise following much speculation that the show would not return due to low ratings. I Am Cait debuted strong in July of last year, with 2.73million viewers tuning in for the series premiere. perruques cheveux naturelsHowever the show failed to hold onto its audience in its second season. Just 860,000 viewers watched the season two finale, with ratings dipping as low as 480,000 during the season. 'Thank you E!': The 66-year-old announced the news on her Twitter page and said 'it's time for the next adventure' Sharing her story: The docu-series followed Caitlyn after her gender transition

'There just weren’t enough viewers,' a source told Radar Online earlier this month. 'The show can’t compete with other programming.' E! released a statement shortly afterwards saying that 'no decision had been made' at that time regarding the future of the show. I Am Cait followed the life of the Olympian, who was born Bruce, after her gender transition. The series was announced by E! immediately after Caitlyn's 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2015, in which she revealed she identifies as female. Losing its audience: The show debuted strong, but failed to hold onto viewers during its second season Call me Caitlyn: The series was announced by E! immediately after Caitlyn's 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer in April 2015, in which she revealed she identifies as female Caitlyn starred in the show alongside other members of the transgender community, including Jennifer Finney Boylan, Candis Cayne, Chandi Moore, Zackary Drucker and Kate Bornstein, and famously clashed with her co-stars over her support of the Republican party. Jenny shared on Facebook following the news: 'It's official as of today-- I AM CAIT will not be renewed for season 3. I am so very proud of being part of this show, and of its creators Andrea Metz and Jeff Olde in particular, who directed us with passion and grace. perruques cheveux'I am grateful for the warm friendships I made with Chandi Moore and Candis Cayne and @katebornstein and Zackary Drucker and @ellagieselle and all of you. (and Kip Zachary and Courtney Nanson, who made us look so fine!) There is more work to do, and I send everyone my love.' 'I am so very proud': Jennifer Finney Boylan shared a Facebook post thanking her cast-mates following the cancellation 'It was one of the best times of my life': Kate Bornstein also tweeted after hearing the news She added: 'Official word from the network today- a hard choice for them, I know. I'll have more to say about this in weeks to come, but for now I'll simply say I'm proud of everything we accomplished, and I send everyone involved my very sincere gratitude, and my love.' And Kate tweeted: 'Ah, #iamcait is done now. It was one of the best times of my life. Made such good forever friends. #allshowsclose.' Caitlyn's ex-wife Kris Jenner, daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner and former step-daughters Kim and Khloe Kardashian also made appearances on I Am Cait during its run. Support network: The Olympian was joined on the show with fellow members of the transgender community, including (L-R) Chandi Moore, Candis Cayne, Ella Giselle and Jennifer Finney Boylan

The movie is due to start production next year in California and Gaga will compose and perform new music for the soundtrack.

As his plummeting career and alcoholism take their toll, her star continues to rise. The new film is the third remake of the original love story released 80 years ago in 1937.

Beyonce was earlier pegged for the role of the young star on the rise, but the casting fell through after the Crazy In Love singer became pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy, now four years old.
