Luxury pads get a touch of fame; PROPERTY: DJ and reality TV star Fran chooses city for his Midlands base.
DJ AND reality TV star Fran Cosgrove has proved Coventry is becoming a desirable place to live.
He has just bought a luxury pad at Beauchamp House, off Greyfriars Lane, to act as his Midlands base.
Fran won ITV's Celebrity Love Island last year with Jayne Middlemiss and has also previously appeared on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
He said: "I am travelling all over the country at the moment and it's nice to have somewhere to call home instead of staying over in hotels all the time.
"I needed somewhere in the Midlands and I knew that Coventry was an ideal location for me. It was just a case of finding the right place to live and Beauchamp House is perfect."
Fran bought the apartment through agent Shortland Horne which is now marketing a series of properties within Beauchamp House.
Sarah Humphries, Shortland Horne's new homes manager, said: "There is a real sense that Coventry's status as a place to live is enhancing.
"We are attracting people to live in city centre apartments that would have never considered living here five years ago.
"Fran Cosgrove was on the lookout for a base in the Midlands because he has quite a few gigs in the region as a DJ.
"A few years ago, he would have chosen somewhere like Birmingham or Nottingham, but now he is delighted to be buying a place in Coventry."
She added: "Beauchamp House is a great example of the changing face of Coventry city centre.
"It is home to a series of professionals who work in the city and now has its very own celebrity, too."
