Try telling people in the Seventies that butter was healthier for you than margarine, and they would force feed you with Stork.
If I were to ask you who the first million-pound show winner was on British TV, you’d probably go for Judith Keppel.

I have that working class fear of having nothing. I’ve always got one eye on what’s in the bank.
My real name is Bob Davis, but for some reason, I got the name Jasper while playing football at the local rec when I was nine years old, and it just stuck. Years later, when someone asked ‘Jasper who?’ I just said ‘Carrott’ – but I have no idea why I came out with that particular word.

I’ve always been sensible with my money. I can’t say I’m a business genius.
