Strictly Come Dancing 2020 is welcoming back Jamie Laing to the competition but what do we need to know about him? Candy Kittens business, McVities fortune and more revealed.
From his family, to his McVities heir status, and even his personal net worth, there’s a lot more to Jamie than his MIC antics.
So what do we need to know about 31 year old? What businesses does he have other than Candy Kittens?
Here’s 5 facts everyone should know about Jamie Laing:
That’s right, Jamie Laing’s great grandad is the genius behind the McVities digestive biscuit meaning Jamie, is the heir to that sweet throne.
According to latest sources, Jamie has an impressive personal net worth of around £7.5million - a lot higher than your average reality TV star.
The McVities claim obviously brings a lot of interest towards Jamie’s family. His dad, Nicholas Laing and mum, Penny Baines are currently running the family businesses.
Jamie also has two siblings in the form of Alexander Laing and Emily Laing.
Keeping the sugar success in the family, Jamie is also the founder of Candy Kittens.
Candy Kittens began in 2012 and is described as the ‘adult-friendly’ sweet that’s also suitable for vegans.
For those of you that don’t know, Jamie was actually meant to do SCD in 2019 but an injury forced him to quit before the live shows started. Here’s hoping it’s second time lucky.
