Jason Manford's company ‘claimed furlough’ despite him making £3m through property empire

Jason Manford, 40, is claimed to have last year sold off 10 rental properties to help pay for his divorce from his first wife Catherine. They were held on the books of his firm Invisible Man Ltd.

However, according to The Sun, documents released by the Government revealed that another of his firms called Gerald Dean Ltd – that takes in cash from his entertainment work – claimed money under the pandemic’s job retention scheme.

The dad of six is a director of the company along with his cousin Lyndsey Holt.

Documents reportedly reveal the company has four employees.

Latest accounts for the firm – 75 per cent of which is owned by the star – show that at the end of March last year, the firm had a bottom-line of £1.372 million.

Iceland boss Richard Walker said: “Everyone at Iceland is extremely grateful for Jason’s contribution today and he has certainly helped to lift spirits with our customers and heroic colleagues.

“Our stores are deeply rooted within their local communities, so it’s a real privilege for us to be in a position where we can work with great people like Jason and donate to some worthy causes at the same time.”

Jason gives to charity a lot and is the patron of Savebabies, which campaigns for newborn screening.

He also supports Stephen’s Story, the charity set up by terminally-ill cancer patient Stephen Sutton, who died in 2014.

The comedian and Lucy share two children together, and he has four kids from his previous marriage.

Jason told The Sun: “We all get along and it is good material. My family are half of my act. People like to hear about them.

“They come to hear that they are not a terrible parent, that it’s normal to lose it in front of a packed shopping centre.”
