TV presenter Kevin McCloud is a familiar face on our screens, known for presenting popular Channel 4 show Grand Designs.
Kevin, 62, has worked on the show since 1999 and has been able to put his skills and expertise as a trained architect to help lucky people realise their dream homes.
Given Kevin’s fame and popularity, his fans are always keen to learn behind the scenes details about his life away from Grand Designs.

Opening up to the Daily Mail, Kevin spoke about preferring to keep his private life away from public view.
“If I welcomed people into my lovely home every week in the pages of a magazine they’d soon see how incredibly dull it is,” the TV presenter said.
“It’s important to maintain a bit of mystique. The more of your private life you put into the public domain, the smaller your private life becomes.”
It’s perhaps unsurprising that Kevin is estimated to have an impressive net worth, given his established career in the world of television.

Kevin reportedly owns his own architectural company, called MCC3 Ltd, which turned over profits of more than £3million in 2019 alone.
According to Celebs Age Wiki, Kevin is estimated to be worth between £1million and £3.5million.
Another surprising fact about Kevin is that, before breaking into the world of architecture he was quite the performer.
