Bradley Walsh discusses his retirement plans, saying that juggling his schedule has gotten “very difficult.”
BRADLEY WALSH talked about his retirement plans as he reflected on his illustrious 40-year career in show business.
Bradley Walsh, 61, has disclosed his retirement intentions, which fans of the veteran TV star will be disappointed to hear. Despite being dubbed one of the “richest men” on British television, he appears to be on the verge of abandoning his 40-year career in show business as he grows older.
I have to juggle making and other things with other things I have going on, so it’s a bit of a challenge.
According to The Sun, Brad has £12 million in the bank thanks to a slew of TV appearances, including 12 years hosting ITV’s The Chase, a new venture with Holly Willoughby on BBC1’s latest game show Take Off, starring alongside his son Barney in their joint reality show Breaking Dad, hosting Wheel Of Fortune and Tonight At The London Palladium, and a long list of acting credits, including Cobra Kai.
He’ll also be seen in ITV’s Darling Buds Of May reboot, The Larkins, as Pa Larkin.
So it’s no surprise that he’s been given the impressive moniker, because he’s also one of the hardest working members of the television industry.
But, as he sat down with the magazine, it seemed that the prospect of Brad being on our television for the rest of his life was too wonderful to be true.
“You know what, I won’t have to do any of that in a couple of years; I’ll be retired and that’ll be it,” he shrugged.
“It appears like I’m always on your screen, but that’s only because I try to squeeze everything into a specific period of year. We produce 210 chases, 16 celebrity chases, and 16 beat the chasers each year. It was only 86 days that were recorded.
“So, out of 365 days, you’d think I’d have a lot of free time. But after you’ve established a solid foundation of events, you can branch out and do other things.”
“I don’t actually have time off, I have meetings, I have personal appearances I have to do, and stuff like that with other things I have going on, so it’s very difficult to shuffle it around,” he continued.
“Brinkwire Summary News,” he said, revealing that The Chase has allowed him to do other things.
