Milken, an American billionaire financier, encouraged Andrew to promote his company Pitch@Palace and now encourages Andrew to return to the business world.

Appearing alongside Succession actor Brian Cox on Channel 4’s The Andrew Neil Show, former Chancellor George Osborne describes himself as a “glow fan” of the Scotsman’s famed alter ego Logan Roy, cheekily asking: ” I don’t know if they’ll allow Channel 4 for us to hear Logan Roy’s most famous catchphrase (‘fuck them!’)?’ Cox responds: ‘George, you have to pay me a huge amount of money to swear… I charge for that now.’
