Furlough cash row
Gillian and Adrian Bayford’s lives changed overnight in 2012 when they scooped a staggering £148million. But just 15 months after the win, their eight-year marriage ended with both parties partly blaming stress from their mind-boggling win.
Ever since, the pair’s love lives have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Adrian shacked up with ex-horse groom Samantha Burbidge, who is 16 years his junior.
But after three years together, she bolted from his £6million house along with with 30 horses, a horse box, and a car he gifted her to get back together with her ex-boyfriend.
In 2018, his new partner Lisa Kemp dumped him after she found saucy emails he’d sent to an ex. And earlier last year, Gillian was convicted of attacking her ex-lover Gavin Innes during their relationship, which ended in 2017.
Gillian is now with fraudster Brian Deans, who was jailed for six months in 2012 after he stole £13,500 in fake refunds from Tesco.
In April, Gillian came under fire when it was revealed she’d claimed nearly £40,000 in furlough cash for her property business despite her huge win. At the time she said: “I’m not paying it back.”
