A source told The Sun: ‘Paul is a man of many talents and his new business is making a lot of money. He uses the business to invest money in growing businesses and it works wonders.

“Paul has also invested in a UK music tech start-up called Audoo. The picks may be a little less traditional than the stock market, but it pays dividends for Paul.
