Temp Head

IRISH actor Jimmy Nesbitt (right) painted the town green last night after savouring his latest 'role' -- as a winning owner at Cheltenham.

Bursting into tears after his horse Riverside Theatre romped to victory in the Ryanair Steeple Chase, with jockey Barry Geraghty steering the way, the emotional actor said it was a victory he would savour.

"I just cannot believe it to tell you the truth, I am just thrilled. I can hardly speak to be honest with you," he said.
