George Osborne has forged a lucrative career since he left politics after the Brexit vote.
The former Chancellor edited the Evening Standard, earned £ 650,000 for four days a month with financial giant Blackrock, and was recently named a partner in boutique investment bank Robey Warshaw.
But the 49-year-old’s success and prosperity pale in comparison to his girlfriend, Thea Rogers, who is ten years his junior as she prepares to crystallize her stake in Deliveroo when it costs up to £ 7.2 billion.

The shipping app has denied its inventory was worth as much as a £ 40million rumor – but as an executive, Rogers’ payday on the listing is likely to be sizeable.
The company has boasted that all employees have held options since 2018, meaning the IPO could make hundreds of them rich instantly.
Last year, Hut Group’s float, valued at £ 5 billion, produced 74 millionaires. Deliveroo’s tactic of offering customers £ 50m worth of shares has fueled the buzz around the float, and many expect stocks to “burst” on listing.
Rogers, the tech company’s chief customer officer, began a relationship with Osborne in 2019 after breaking up with 21-year-old writer Frances.
Rogers was a political producer for the BBC before entering politics as special adviser and then chief of staff to the former Chancellor.
Osborne is said to have held onto a 3 million pound chalet in the Swiss alpine town of Verbier (picture)
