Too much Christmas cheer? Marco Pierre White Jr swigs booze from the bottle as he slumps at a bus stop dressed as Santa... days after being spared jail
He's had an eventful year to say the least.
So it wasn't any surprise to see that Marco Pierre White Jr was embracing the more party-fueled aspects of the festive season over the weekend.
Heading out dressed as Father Christmas, the 21-year-old reality flop was seen chugging wine from the bottle as he waited at a London bus stop.

Bad Santa! Marco Pierre White Jr looked to be embracing the more party-fueled aspects of the festive season over the weekend
Dressed in a thread-bare Father Christmas costume, the son of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White was recognizable thanks to his array of tattoos - which were prominently on display.
Wearing a fake white bear and a red hat, Marco rounded off his Santa get-up in a slightly odd-ball way by clutching two bottles of wine in his hands.
Playing the merry fool, it appears that the reality star-wannabe had indulged in too much Yuletide cheer as he lolled around on the bench at a bus stop.

The Celebrity Big Brother contestant looked to have started his party before he even arrived at his destination, as Marco unashamedly relieved himself in a nearby alleyway.
The eldest of Marco Senior's two sons from his marriage to Matti Conejero, Marco shot to notoriety earlier this year when he made an ill-fated appearance on CBB.
His festive frolic came just days after he was spared jail for fraudulently racking up £2,500 on his ex-girlfriend's bank card after buying Apple store goods and sunglasses it is thought he sold for drugs.

He was spared jail but ordered to perform unpaid work after admitting making a 'high volume' of payments on Carina Evans's card after she lent it to him to buy food on February 28.
After the card was blocked, the celebrity chef's son then tricked her into unblocking it - pretending he had been arrested and needed to pay bail.
Marco then went on a shopping spree that saw him visit the Apple Store and Sunglasses Hut, where he proceeded to make further unauthorised transactions, Westminster Magistrates' Court heard.

Chief magistrate Emma Arbuthnot, who admonished the defendant for 'smirking' in the dock, said the fraud was 'to obtain goods which I assume you then sold to buy drugs'.
She added: 'There is no doubt this is serious enough for a community order.'
Between May and August, Pierre White Jr went into rehabilitation for his drug problem, the court heard.
He was told he had to undertake 120 hours of unpaid work to be completed within 12 months, while paying £2,500 in compensation to his victim.
The reality TV star, who gave his address as a hotel in Corsham, near Bath, had previously pleaded guilty to dishonestly making a false representation during a hearing at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on November 23.
