Gavin’s tip: Keep it in yer pocket

TIGHT-FISTED rugby star Gavin Hen­son says he never tips at restau­rants if he goes there a lot.

The Cardiff Blues player says he doesn’t need to leave the staff a tip be­cause his cus­tom alone is enough re­ward!

Gavin, star of re­cent Chan­nel 5 se­ries The Bach­e­lor, ad­mit­ted: “I do tip, but if I go to the same chain res­tau­rant I don’t tip be­cause I’m such a reg­u­lar cus­tomer and usu­ally they don’t ex­pect me to.

“They just ap­pre­ci­ated I’m there so of­ten.

“Although I al­ways give a tip when I’m in a taxi.”

The 30-year-old has also ad­mit­ted he wor­ries that his money will run-out in the fu­ture – de­spite be­ing worth an es­ti­mated £3m.

He said: “I’ve learnt that you should al­ways re­spect money, even when you’re feel­ing flush.

“So many of my mates have wasted money and then, when they’ve not got much left, they re­gret it.

“I’m much more cau­tious.

“They might have the right idea though – they don’t think about to­mor­row, they just live for the mo­ment rather than wor­ry­ing.”
