Self-styled Money Saving Expert and multi-millionaire Martin Lewis has squandered his entire fortune on a horse race at Kempton Park, it has been revealed. 42 year old Lewis, who pocketed £35m for the sale of his website MoneySavingExpert.com in 2012, told The Times 'its completely out of character, I was at Kempton Park with some friends and we'd had a few glasses of Champagne, not the overpriced Moet & Chandon they serve in hospitality – I brought some of Lidl's own, at £12.99 a bottle its much better value. I placed a few modest bets and won a few pounds back and after a few more glasses of bubbly I threw caution to the wind and decided to bet everything I had, not with the Turf Accountants at the track mind you, I went online and set up accounts with 12 different bookmakers and received free bets worth a total of £2000. Then, and this is where it went a bit wrong, I put it all on a horse called 'Colostomy Bag' that was running in the 4.30 and the Findus-bound old nag came in last. When I sobered up and realised what I'd done I felt like sticking my head in the oven. So my tip this week is that if you are thinking about gas induced asphyxiation be sure and shop around first and if necessary change provider to make sure you're on the best tariff'.

I love the idea of being told how to squander your money in the mosr economical way! 5*.
(I am minded of George Best who, when asked how he managed to get through such a vast quantity of money, said "I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.")
