The business they call ‘show’ can be a cruel cruel world sometimes; as one person benefits from the trappings of success another can by trapped by benefits from the social (not sure if that works but we’re keeping it in).
For instance, little over 5 years ago Pop Idol’s Rik Waller was wowing the nation with his enormous waistline and even more enormous voice. But now The Daily Mirror have papped him with his head held low walking out of a job centre in Kent. At the opposite end of the showbiz spectrum, 20 year old Daniel Radcliffe, AKA Harry Potter, has recently purchased his third New York home for a whopping £3.76 million. It must be a bitter pill for poor old Rik to swallow (though on the plus side he enjoys eating.)
Check out Rik at his new office job here. Warning: it may make you depressed.
