Meanwhile, the self-made businessman and multimillionaire entrepreneur has just starred on BBC1 prime time programme Britain’s Spending Secrets with Anne Robinson.

Despite having lunches with former Tory Prime Minister John Major and boxer Mike Tyson, Alfie Best, who was born in Leicester into a poor Romany Gypsy family, turned down a request to be included in the Sunday Times’ Rich List in 2011.

After starting along his professional path at the age of just 14 years old, buying and selling cars and vans, the Romany Gypsy now owns a business valued at £200million. Wyldecrest Parks has 43 residential and holiday mobile home parks spread across the UK, covering 22 counties, and it’s one of the largest park home operators in the UK.

Alfie Best’s son, Alfie Best Junior, who appeared on Channel 4’s programme My Big Fat Gypsy Fortune, is also one of the youngest entrepreneurs in the country. For more on Wyldecrest, visit
