After growing up on the notorious Wyther Park Council Estate in Leeds where I lived with no electricity for 3 years, and leaving school early without any qualifications I would never have dreamt that I would eventually win the title of “I Own Britain’s Best Home” and have the opportunity to give away thousands of pounds of my own money as I did on “The Secret Millionaire”. I hope I can be an inspiration to anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit. I’m living proof you don’t have to be held back by your roots.
