Roman Kemp’s becomes a millionaire thanks to his double act with pop star father Martin and lucrative contracts with Marks & Spencer and an ITV show
Pop star Martin Kemp should expect a bumper Father’s Day present from 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 by seven figures thanks to several lucrative contracts, including one with Marks & Spencer and a weekend ITV show.
Sources close to the father and son say they are inundated with offers to star together in ad campaigns and endorsement deals.

The pair have the same agent, London-based Insanity Group, where they are marketed to potential clients as a double act.
Nor are they the only father-and-son duo raking it in.
The Chase presenter Bradley Walsh, 61, and his son Barney, 23, have made three series of reality show Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad.
Meanwhile, comedian Jack Whitehall, 32, has a long-standing double act with his father Michael, 81.
Earlier this year, M&S hired the Kemps to model a menswear collection, which 28-year-old Roman has been sharing with his 1.4 million Instagram followers.
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 broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays.

They are reportedly each paid £10,000 an episode, with 22 screened last year and a further 44 planned for this year.
The pair also star on Channel 4’s Celebrity Gogglebox, earning £42,000 per series, and in March, they took part in ITV’s DNA Journey together.
Roman has said: ‘We’ve been so lucky. Working together meant we could see each other [during lockdown]. It was such a life-saver and something I’m really grateful for.’
