Cash in the Attic presenter goes bust
In one of the most wonderfully ironic bits of Z-List news, Cash in the Attic presenter Lorne Spicer has filed for bankruptcy. The “money-saving expert” started out on BBC Radio Norfolk before moving on to the Mail on Sunday and into television with quality entertainment of the likes of Beat the Bailiff, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and the long-running Cash in the Attic. She filed for bankruptcy in Southend under her married name of Donovan. One can’t help but think she’d have been better off keeping Cash in the Bank rather than the Attic…
Last August she told an interviewer: “Everyone tends to store things in the attic and forget about them but there’s plenty of money to be had if you know what to look out for.
“I recently cleared out mine after 14 years and although it was an absolute nightmare, I did find a few items of old bits of furniture which I sent to auction.
“Because of my job, I’m always buying lots of things so whatever I get rid of, I end up replacing with new things. But I know now exactly what I’m dealing with and I’m not wasting money unnecessarily.”
Now, I’d usually say you can trust what you read here, but take this one with a pinch of salt. The source of this info? A. Nonymous for the Sun. Ick.
