Kevin Bacon has been appointed to the board of the Thai Leisure Group (TLG) as non-executive director.

Bacon was most recently managing director at Jamie Oliver International where he oversaw expansion into the Middle East, Australia, Asia and America.

Bacon said: "I'm delighted to be joining Thai Leisure Group at a very exciting time for them with ambitious plans for next year, and am looking forward to helping them develop the business across the UK."

The group plans to open six new sites in the new year and seven sites in 2016.

Martin Stead, co-owner of TLG, said: "This really is an exciting time for Thai Leisure Group. Kevin's appointment comes on the verge of a significant multi-million pound investment."
