JAMIE Redknapp paid himself a huge £2million last year after cashing in on high-profile TV shows.
The retired footballer, 44, took £2,150,000 in dividends from his firm JFR Enterprises, new accounts reveal.
It comes as his media career continues to rocket skywards. Earlier this year Jamie and dad Harry launched their own family show Redknapp’s Home Fixture.
While he is a team captain on Sky One’s A League Of Their Own alongside Freddie Flintoff and a regular football pundit on Sky Sports.
The sum is a huge step up from the £18,000 sum paid out while ex-wife Louise was still a director in 2018.
However, in 2017 – the year the couple divorced, Jamie paid himself £1m.
Louise gave up her directorship in July 2018 a year on from their divorce after 20 years of marriage.
The latest accounts are for the year ended 31 July 2019.
JFR Enterprises’s reserves are still in very healthy shape after Jamie’s withdrawal – with it now worth £812,217.
The nature of business listed on Companies House is ‘advertising agencies’ – though company records indicate Redknapp has used his firm to make investments as well.
The business was set up in 2002, three years before he retired from professional football.
He has one other directorship listed on Companies House – Saint Witz, which set up in September 2018.
There are no accounts as yet for it and it’s nature of business is listed as ‘retail sale of clothing in specialised stores.’
