Our seaside town is famous thanks to Tyson Fury's Netflix hit – we love the attention but there's a side they don't show | The Sun
RESIDENTS in a seaside town made famous by Tyson Fury's Netflix hit say they love the attention – but there's a side viewers don't see.
At Home With The Furys has proved a knockout success in the world heavyweight’s hometown.
Tyson Fury has made seaside resort Morecambe home for him and his family, and the runaway success of the show has significantly raised the profile of the town.
David Waddington, 44, owner of Miogelato, said: "I thought the show was fantastic for the town.
"Tyson and his family do a lot to publicise the town and do their best to be a part of the community. The show has really captured the beauty of Morecambe, and that has been great for Morecambe.
"It is a really entertaining show and is trending number one on Netflix, which is a great postcard for Morecambe."

Julie O’Hara, who runs the Bay Café, added: "Tyson often comes in here to eat fish and chips with his family.
"His kids prefer sausage and chips, Paris orders haggis and Tyson just had a drink last time he came in because he is in training.
"When he comes in here, he his just a like any normal father – out with his kids and is just an everyday guy.
"We get a lot of visitors coming in and asking about Tyson. They ask if we know him, does he come in a lot and have we seen him.
