Pop star Martin Kemp should expect an exceptional Father’s Day gift from his son Roman today – after their double act made the young DJ a millionaire.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the Capital FM presenter’s bank account has swelled to seven digits thanks to several lucrative deals, including one with Marks & Spencer and an ITV show on the weekend.
Sources close to the father and son say they are inundated with offers to star together in advertising campaigns and sponsorship deals.

Both men have the same agent, Insanity Group, based in London, where they are marketed to potential clients as a double act.
They aren’t the only father-son duo to take advantage of it, either.
Chase host Bradley Walsh, 61, and son Barney, 23, have directed three Bradley Walsh & Son reality series: Breaking Dad.
Meanwhile, comedian Jack Whitehall, 32, has a long-standing double act with his father Michael, 81.
Earlier this year, M&S hired Kemps to model a collection of men’s clothing, which Roman, 28, shared with his 1.4 million followers on Instagram.
Industry experts estimate the deal is worth £ 150,000. Spandau Ballet star Martin, 59, also teams up with his son for Martin & Roman’s Weekend Best, an ITV show that airs on Saturdays and Sundays.

They are said to have each paid £ 10,000 per episode, with 22 showing last year and 44 more slated for this year.
The couple also star on Channel 4’s Celebrity Gogglebox, earning £ 42,000 per set, and in March they took part in ITV’s DNA Journey together.
Roman said: “We were so lucky. Working together meant we could see each other [during lockdown]. It was a lifeline and something I am truly grateful for.
