His £80m music fortune was up £28m on last year, according to last week’s Sunday Times rich list.

a large pond which wouldn’t have given him much change from half a million pounds.
“Apparently it’s amazing for skinny dipping because it is like swimming in a large lake.”
Natural swimming pools are turning into a new celebrity craze and stars such as former footballer David Beckham, 43, have also shown an interest in the fad.
