Huge profits still yet to materialize
Back when the credit crunch started, the husband of TV presenter Anthea Turner dismissed rumours that his property company was in trouble. He boasted: ‘I am sitting in our £5million chateau in Megève in the Alps. I will sue anyone who says that Imagine Homes is in financial difficulty.’ Yesterday it was revealed that the couple have been forced to put their Alpine bolt-hole up for sale. Worse still, anxious estate agents have suggested they lower their £5.5million asking price because of a lack of interest.
