The newspaper published its annual rundown of the wealthiest British residents at the weekend and, although you will still be a way off the £13.1 billion fortune amassed by property magnates David and Simon Reuben at the top of the tree, you could still outspend some household names. Singer Sam Smith, who performed Writing’s on the Wall, the theme to James Bond flick Spectre, has £20 million in the bank on the back of his worldwide success. That still makes him £9 million worse off than you, should you receive some very good news when you check your tickets at the EuroMillions Results page this evening.
Also in the world of music, you could lord it over Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, also on £20 million, whilst you would sit just £1 million behind former One Direction member Zayn Malik on £30 million.
In the sporting arena, your bank balance would also dwarf that of boxer Amir Khan, who is worth ‘just’ £18 million, but you might be advised not to taunt him too much about it. In addition, you would find yourself on a par with Chelsea stars Cesc Fabregas and Radamel Falcao, but you thankfully wouldn’t have to endure the weekly wrath of 40,000 supporters at Stamford Bridge, angry at a potentially European football-free season next term.
If you think you would make an accomplished multimillionaire, you can buy EuroMillions tickets online or from authorised retailers up until 7:30pm BST (8:30pm CEST) tonight. Good luck!
