The Chase’s Anne Hegerty now a millionaire but still trails behind Bradley Walsh

The Chase star Anne Hegerty is a millionaire, new figures have revealed.

Anne – aka The Governess – who starred in I’m A Celebrity three years ago, has a healthy cash surplus of £459,373 sitting in accounts for her cheekily-named company Frosty Knickers Ltd.

That is up from £293,735 last year.

Figures reveal she had a Corporation Tax bill of around £200,000 for the last two years – meaning after costs and other deductions her income will have exceeded £1m.

Her job on the show as a Chaser is to try and make sure contestants go home empty-handed.

But there is nothing empty about her company coffers.
