LATEST: Former FRASIER star Kelsey Grammer has bought a summer home in The Hamptons, New York after once swearing he'd never return to the region when a rental experience there went bad.

Grammer sued a broker for $100,000 (GBP55,500) when a summer break in 1998 turned into a nightmare when renovation on the house next door left him with a constant headache.

But he's decided to give the exclusive celebrity enclave a second chance after falling for a new home in Bridgehampton.

He tells society magazine Gotham, "This will be the first home we've actually bought here."

Grammer and his wife Camille already own homes in Los Angeles and Hawaii.
