JAMIE MAKES £82,000 A DAY!
JAMIE Oliver paid himself a tasty £30MILLION last year – despite his company reporting losses of almost £13m.
Book sales, TV shows and licensing deals saw turnover at the celebrity chef’s company, Jamie Oliver Holdings, rocket by 21 per cent to £39.7m.
But a number of debts in his other companies saw overall profits plummet.
When accountants included costs, expenses and exceptional items for the year, the company ended up losing £12,818,072.
Despite the losses, Oliver’s coffers were bolstered handsomely
He also received a £10m property from Jamie Oliver Holdings.
And he also awarded himself a dividend of more than £2m from Fresh One Productions Limited, which deals with his TV shows.
His earnings work out at around at £2.5m per month, £576,000 per week or £82,000 per day.
The 40-year-old Essex boy, who is now worth around £250m, also showed his generous side by donating £311,266 to charity.
While Jamie Oliver Holdings had a tough year, Jamie’s Italian Limited, which is separate, reported a more successful 12 months.
Turnover at the restaurant company, which has 38 venues in the UK, soared by seven per cent to £109m.
Profits at Jamie’s Italian, of which Oliver owns a 50 per cent share, were £2.6m.
