Birmingham’s Hotel La Tour found itself disciplined last year for an advert featuring a woman’s bottom; its cheeky billboards were to promote the boutique hotel’s “new rear”. It is owned by English, 74, and his wife Wendy, 72, who sold Milton Keynes-based Hayley Conference Centres in 2007 for £358m, with the couple holding a 57% stake. They plan to expand the Hotel La Tour brand.
