Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are being forced to move out of their London home because of blocked drains.

The couple and their six children - Maddox, 10, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - are currently living in the leafy suburb of Richmond but after neighbours experienced problems with their sewers, the couple are planning to flee their rented home to escape the stench.

Brad and Angelina are planning to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee this weekend with their kids and the actor is worried the smell will ruin their fun and so have decided to temporarily move to a property nearby in order to enjoy their weekend.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brad and Angelina have been getting their kids excited about the Diamond Jubilee. They know how much of a big deal it is going to be and all of the children are fascinated by the royal family.

"But since their drains started playing up, the smell in and around their house has become unbearable.

"They're concerned that it will put a dampener on the whole weekend if they stick it out so Brad suggested they find somewhere nearby to stay until the problem is fixed."
