Hasselhoff charged $7 to return to Baywatch

Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff was stunned when he revisited the beach set of his most famous show because he was charged an admission fee.

Guards protecting the Malibu beach location of the 1980s show didn't recognise the actor, who played Mitch Buchanan for eleven years.

A source says, "He was wandering down Malibu beach, when he passed the very place where they used to film Baywatch - now a tourist attraction - and thought he'd pop in to have a look.

"However, the attendant failed to recognise him and tried to charge him $7 (€5.45) entry, like everyone else. Hasselhoff shook his head and muttered: 'Man, I used to own this beach', before reluctantly paying the charge."
