Flamboyant businessman Peter Stringfellow has found a new venture outside the strip club scene – selling lingerie.

The tycoon will launch his Stringfellows Collection online in time for Christmas and is even considering opening a boutique in Central London, which will bring together garments by different designers.

“People have seen the value of branding. Up until now, I haven’t really used Stringfellows as a brand name, so now I’m going to do that,” he told the London Evening Standard.

Stringfellow will close his largest gentleman’s club, Angels in Soho, next week, though he has also said he plans to open a nationwide chain of new “glamour bars” and a casino.
