A millionaire former adult magazine owner has opened the doors of his mansion to 70 foster children left homeless by Hurricane Irma.

Marc Bell, the ex-Penthouse boss, and his wife Jennifer took in dozens of foster children who had been sleeping on a gymnasium floor in the wake of the catastrophic storm.

The children were allowed to help themselves to the arcade games in the Boca Raton house in Florida and they all sat down for dinner to the sound of a live guitarist after all the girls had been given manicures.


Mr and Mrs Bell stepped in when it emerged the youngsters were being forced out of their sheltered accommodation after the hurricane ripped through the southern US state.

The SOS Children's Village Florida - the foster care community - called the successful entrepreneur begging for help, saying 'We've been evicted from our shelters and we don't know where to bring the kids, and we're not getting any help from the county - what do we do?'.

In response, Mr Bell told CBS: 'I said bring them here.

'They were hungry. They were tired.

'They lived in the gymnasium for a week. They hadn't showered for a week and you saw how excited they were.'
