Property tycoon Kevin Cash could have been forgiven for believing that the New Year couldn’t be worse than 2018, during which he was declared bankrupt, owing creditors £40 million.

If so, he’s been swiftly disabused. For I can disclose that Birmingham-born Cash, 55, who until recently appeared in various Rich Lists with an estimated £500 million fortune, has seen his trophy London property sold off by receivers.
