The Traitors winner Harry Clarke has revealed how he was able to fund his lavish lifestyle ahead of his £95,150 show win.
The 23-year-old British Army engineer has confused fans with his talk about money, telling the show he wanted to win to look after his family, later telling Uncloaked he “didn’t need the money”.
A quick look at his Instagram shows he lived a comfortable life before he found fame, with pictures of the star on private jets and dripping in designer accessories.
So fans were left confused when Harry revealed in a recent interview that he “hasn’t taken a pot to f**k” and has borrowed money from his father while he waits for the big prize to be sent to him.
Clearing up the confusion, Harry revealed his glamorous social media page was not what it seemed and credited his famous girlfriend Anna Maynard.
CBBC star Anna, sister of I’m A Celebrity star Jack Maynard and singer Conor Maynard, presents talent show Got What It Takes? what on the children’s tv channel.
Speaking about his fortune, Harry told Metro.co.uk: “I wish I had a private jet and I wish I had the money to go on a private jet, it’s a waste of money to be honest.
“Everyone thinks I’m rich, but I’ve been very lucky to meet my other half, whose brothers have worked amazingly hard since he was 15, and I’ve somehow managed to sort out my lifestyle and get into the their. ‘
“Everyone says, you have designer bags and this and that, all my designer bags are fake. I wouldn’t spend that money, because it’s a waste of money.
“And I would never buy anything for myself, and anything I have a designer like my trainers bought me as a Christmas present.”
Harry has previously come under fire from fans after declaring that he “never needed” the cash pot.
He took home the impressive sum after tricking Faithful Mollie Pierce, 21, into finishing the game with him.
The champion, who declared himself the “best cheater ever” sparked outrage from fans who said he never needed the money after he “acted like he couldn’t afford a Toby Carvery with the family”.
In spin-off show Uncloaked, Harry said: ‘I’m 23 years old with so much money! I can’t even explain it. Money never makes me happy.
“I never needed money. As long as I have a roof over my head, food, water, my family and my other half, that’s all I need.
“This money will take care of them, everything my mum and dad have done for me as kids, and given me everything I needed, to be able to give them something in return is the best thing ever.”
On the show, Harry told the other contestants that he would really like to win the money so he can take his family out and be able to pick up the bill at the end without worry.
And while the sentiment was there, fans wondered why Traitor was trying to appear working-class when showing off his lavish lifestyle on Instagram.
Sitting at the dining room table, in a suit and boots, looking dapper as ever, Harry told the group, “My happiness comes from seeing my family happy, like my brothers and sisters.”
“Mine is like a madhouse because there are 11 or 12 of us. So when we go out for a family meal, it’s not just us going out. You will hear us coming out.
“But it would be the best thing to go home and that Saturday be like, ‘let’s all go out, but in the end, nobody has to worry about paying. Being able to upload and pay the bill first would be amazing and then set me up for the next chapter in my life.
“I’m not saying I’m looking to get out of the military, but I’m tired of traveling all the time.”
Harry reportedly blew £2,000 on a huge pub party for family and friends after his epic win on the popular BBC show.
The Sun reported that he treated 18 of his nearest and dearest to a party at The George in Eton, Berkshire where he hired a function room.
Harry, who hails from Slough, reportedly booked it from 6pm to 11.30pm on Saturday night, where guests danced to Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Murder on the Dancefloor tune.
Windsor and Eton Brewery marketing director Kevin Fernandes told the publication: “Harry is not a regular but has been a few times in the past.
“There were about 18 or 19 of them and we left them to have some privacy in the Hop House, our function room.
“My staff were very pleased with Harry. They said he is a very nice, down-to-earth person. He had no attitude, was very soft spoken and nice to talk to.
“No one was really drunk – everyone was just having a good time. I have no idea how many times they played Murder on the Dancefloor though!’
Harry paid the huge bill of around £2,000 and gave the staff a “generous tip”.
