After being forced to retire last year due to a foot injury, Jamie Laing hopes to take a quick step to victory in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing

While it’s not yet clear what fees the Made in Chelsea star will pocket, showbiz contenders have reportedly won up to £ 400,000, meaning Christmas could come early in the Laing house

Not that they need the money As heir to the McVities’ estimated £ 485million fortune, Jamie, 31, has already lived an extremely privileged life

He was raised in a lavish four-bedroom flat on King’s Road, London, and educated at Radley College in Oxfordshire, where alumni include former poet laureate Andrew Motion and son of ‘Oscar Wilde, Cyril Holland

And all this would have been paid for using the money from the family empire, which fell into their hands when Jamie’s great-grandfather Sir Alexander Grant made his way through in the company as an apprentice baker

Sir Alex became a shining star when he created the Digestive Biscuit in 1982 – named so because the high baking soda content was believed to aid digestion

When the company’s founder, Robert McVitie, passed away without an heir, Alexander was appointed chairman and CEO and left the company to son-in-law Hector Laing upon his death in 1937

Meanwhile, with so much cash in circulation, Jamie’s father appointed a stern bank manager known as «  Frank  » to manage his son’s trust fund

« Frank is one of the scariest people but my dad loves him My dad doesn’t want to handle my finances so he hired him, » Jamie told the Daily Mail

« Our whole family has their money in a private bank and when I go over my allowance I’m called to meet Frank, whom I used to try to charm at first, but now that tactic doesn’t work

« On one occasion I was in Cheltenham and I went to get some money from the bank, but my card was not working So I called Frank and he said I was not getting money anymore and that I should find another way to get home « 

Luckily for Jamie, he alone was worth £ 2million thanks to his candy company Candy Kittens and various TV appearances

His father Nicholas allegedly sold his share of McVitie’s in the mid-90s, and according to Jamie, he hasn’t seen a dime of the money and doesn’t even know where it is

« We sold the business a long time ago, but I don’t know where that money went, » he told the Daily Star on Sunday.
