'It's how much money I've spent over the years. Getting on to 50, 60 million must have passed through my hands,' said Davidson.

Asked how he felt about that, he told Morgan: 'Brilliant. Thank God I had it. When I won New Faces [in 1976] I said, 'Mum you'll never have to work again as long as you live', and she never did.'
