Strictly star Tess Daly and husband Vernon Kay won't pass their millions on to their kids
STRICTLY star Tess Daly and husband Vernon Kay won't pass their millions on to their kids.
The couple – who married in September 2003 – have daughters Phoebe, 15, and Amber, 11, together.
Vernon, 46, is reportedly worth £5 million alongside Strictly host Tess, 51, but admits he won't be giving his girls financial handouts.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, the Bolton-born star explained: "I’m not giving my kids a future.
“I’m not giving them anything. I’m not saying, ‘here’s a trust fund go and do whatever you want’.
"No way – they will have to graft to make a living. The world is not going to give you anything.”
Despite the success both he and Tess have achieved in their careers, Vernon's working class upbringing has instilled a strong work ethic in him that his current wealth hasn't shaken.
His dad Norman was a truck driver while his mother Gladys worked in a mill, and Vernon got his first job at 14.
The former Family Fortunes host continued: "My kids will have to work for it. That’s the way I was brought up and my parents and their parents too.
“It worries me some young people think they can sit at a keyboard, pout their lips and be an influencer – but that’s not real life.”
Last month The Mirror claimed Vernon had signed up for this year's series of I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here for £250k.
An insider told The Mirror: "Everyone’s so pleased to have Vernon on board, he’s a lovely guy, full of down-to-earth northern charm and perfect for the show."
The Sun Online contacted Vernon's rep for comment.
