Status Quo star Rick Parfitt is planning to give up his life in Spain and move back to Britain for the sake of his baby twins.
The rocker's wife, Lindsay, gave birth to Lily and Tommy last May (08), and the couple has been raising them at their villa in the Spanish countryside.
Parfitt admits they have faced numerous difficulties having young children in such a remote area, so they have decided to sell the luxury property and move back to their native U.K.- because they want the twins to grow up in a more sociable environment.
The couple also plans to buy a holiday home in Spain close to their current abode so they can spend vacations in the sun.
Parfitt says, "Somehow you just miss old England. The villa here (in Spain) is currently on the market and we want to split our time between Spain and the U.K. The idea is to downsize to a villa closer to the coast and buy a country home in England. The kids have had a lovely peaceful start here with pure air and no noise, but now it's time to move them closer to civilisation and a variety of people.
"Also it's just too hot for them to leave the house in the Spanish summer."
