I saw it on the news too Andrew.
As you say no big deal for him money wise and I'm sure he can afford a taxi or chauffeur for 20 months....
But his insurance will be increased when he does get his licence back.

5 days pay £86k that’s 2.6 million pound a year .
My kids watch BGT on Saturday and yes I did watch bits but he looked like a drinker then . I don’t think his mate Dec could see it .

How long does a drink driving conviction stay on record as far as insurance companies are concerned?
As Ant is reportedly worth £62,000,000 it won't be much of a hardship for him to employ a driver for a few years until the situation has calmed down a bit.

That's not right. HIs income has been revealed in court in order for the magistrate to set the fine. Last year, Ant supposedly earned £130,000 a week. That works out as nearly £7 million. Worth every penny! :sarcasmalert:

Will affect insurance and must be declared for 5 years, but will stay on licence for 11 years and can only be removed after that.

£7 million that’s worse then my bad maths estimate.

I would love to say that I hope he has learnt his lesson but perhaps he does not live in our world and only the world of the super rich .
I could say so much now but as my wife says to me relax and don’t worry about it and I can say as a happy person that I can take the Capri out anytime ( well as long as it’s dry and not raining ) and have that big smile on my face with people looking and putting there thumps up . He can’t do that . :cool:

Money certainly hasn't brought him happiness......You can have mental issues rich or poor!

For cheaper insurance in 20 months time, maybe he needs to get a classic :ford: :) I could do him a deal on a nice Sierra for £200k :lol:
