£53 million

If your bank account details leaked on to the internet no doubt you’d be a little peeved, that is of course unless your name is Ricky Gervais (the famous one who does that dance, not another one).

According to ‘web-info’ Ricky has raked in £53m in his decade of dabbling in the showbiz sweetshop known as comedy, and true to form he only see’s the funny side of the leak. Scribbling like a monkey on a typewriter on his blog about the news, he wrote; ‘Wow! I think there must be a leak at my accountant's. They are of course spot on’, adding; ‘I know it sounds a lot, but remember, I donate a lot of this to good causes (the Inland Revenue mainly).’

Finishing with a trademark quip; ‘Now this is out, I will have to get my family a million scratch cards each for Christmas. I have decided to use the rest of the money to take over Libya.’
