How Did Ant Anstead Get So Rich?
Becoming a television star is what made this presenter so rich. Prior to that, he played semi-professional football for more than 15 years. He played well over 700 matches at the Ryman level and then made his transition from a goalkeeper to the striker. During his time, he was able to win many matches and become the only player to win the Ryman league promotions in both of the aforementioned positions. He started his career in the television in the early 2010s.
After he signed with Channel 4, he began producing and hosting his own show called “The World’s Most Expensive Cars”, from which he made a little over $15.000. In 2014, he became the host of the new show “For the Love of Cars” where he teamed up with an already established name in that field – Philip Glenister. Ever since then, he has taken part in multiple television shows and realities not just on BBC One and Two but Channel 4 and many other networks. From his television career, he was able to gather more than $500.000 by the late 2010s.
