A London court heard he transferred £350,000 to other accounts, hid a property in Germany and failed to declare 75,000 shares in an IT firm and a £700,000 loan.

The father-of-four was legally obliged to disclose all his assets after being declared bankrupt in 2017.

The London-based star now faces losing lucrative contracts with TV networks around the world, including his job as a BBC pundit at Wimbledon.
