Wealthy: David and Victoria managed to rank 372 on this year’s Sunday Times Rich List. The couple boast combined wealth of some £355 million

The reports come after it was revealed profits from David’s company DB Ventures halved over the span of a year, from £23.2 million in 2017 to £11.5 million in 2018.   

Meanwhile, wife Victoria’s fashion business has plunged almost £36 million into the red after making losses of £12.5 million last year.

David has endorsement arrangements with brands including Pepsi, Samsung, H&M, Haig whisky and Adidas which give him a cut of rising sales.
