Gary Rhodes left more than £6.4million in his will after death in Dubai, according to a new report.
The celebrity chef, 59, died in Dubai in November 2019 after suffering a fall at his home in the UAE.
Now The Sun reports Gary left behind a fortune in excess of £6.4 million and he left it all to his wife Jennie, 60, according to figures from London’s probate office.
The will, which is believed to have been signed in 2012, is also said to allocate Jennie his personal items including his cars.
After his death, Jennie is believed to have taken over the running of Gary’s two restaurants in Dubai.
He had lived in Dubai since 2011, and died after suffering a fall at his home there in late 2019.
Gary collapsed after a day filming with ITV and suffered a bleed on the brain, known as a subdural haematoma.
The chef was rushed to hospital but passed away shortly after.
In a statement at the time his family said Gary had returned home from shooting with Rock Oyster Media for ITV in Dubai and had been in a ‘very happy mood for a peaceful evening with his wife Jennie’.
They continued: “After dinner, Gary unfortunately collapsed in their residence and was rushed to hospital but unfortunately passed away due to subdural haematoma.”
As well as running his restaurants in Dubai, Garry had made a name for himself with appearances on MasterChef, Hell’s Kitchen and his own series Rhodes Around Britain.
He also appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2008 where he was paired with professional Karen Hardy.
A year after the star’s death, Gary’s son George Rhodes appeared on Loose Women to reflect on what he described as a “difficult” 12 months.
