Reg tips its beak to 20-year-old Ben Way who's abstained from women and beer for a year - and all to placate his dotcom investors.

As part of a £25 million deal to fund the lad's new search engine-cum-portal business, waysearch.co.uk, his backers slapped a 'don't go out and enjoy yourself' ban on young Ben.

Financiers feared that Benny 'swollen gonads' Way would piss the money up the wall and generally run amok with their cash.

And just to ensure Ben behaved himself he was even chaperoned on nights out.

Yesterday, thankfully, the shackles of his virtual imprisonment were undone and in true style, Ben got pissed on champagne and now plans to move his French girlfriend into his bachelor pad.

Good boy, Ben, good boy. ®
