Britain's 67th-richest man co-owns Ann Summers, adult magazine publisher Gold Star Publications, executive jet company Gold Air International and Sport Newspapers.
How did he make his millions?
East Ender Gold borrowed £700 to buy a bookshop in 1957. At 25, he owned four, selling two of them for £3 million 10 years later. With brother Ralph, he bought Ann Summers in '72 (turnover for '03-04 forecast at £140 million). They founded Sport Newspapers in '88 with David Sullivan and in '92 took a 50% stake in Birmingham City FC, which Gold chairs. He and his family are worth £465 million.
What's the secret of his success?
A relentless drive that he attributes to childhood poverty.
