EVER fancied a sneak peek into the life of the super-rich?

A property featured in HBO's hit TV series, Succession, which revolves around the wealthy Logan family, has just sold for $105 million and the house is the epitome of luxury.

Known as Fordune, the mansion, set in Southampton town in the much-sought-after Hamptons area in New York state, also has a unique history, having been built in the early 1960s by the grandson of car marker, Henry Ford.

Spanning 20,000 sq ft, the opulent home has 12 bedrooms and as many bathrooms, as well as a separate guest house across its 42 acres of land.

All the original features remain, such as ceilings with bespoke moldings and chandeliers, as well as Italian marble fireplaces, French parquet floors, and imported antique bathroom fixtures from Europe.

It's the perfect entertaining space, with a 48ft living room, a large chef’s kitchen, and a garage that holds up to six cars.

The future owner will never be bored with plenty of outdoor leisure facilities, including tennis and basketball courts and a swimming pool.

On the property's doorstep is the Atlantic Ocean, with a quarter-mile of beach views from the large bay windows to the front of the property and there's also private access to three ponds and Mecox Bay.

Henry Ford II and his wife, Anne McDonnell, lived in the property until 1975 when they sold the home, along with the land, for $1.8 million.

In 2002, Brenda Earl, a portfolio manager for Zweig-Dimenna, purchased the property for $21.75 million and carried out an extensive renovation on the home in 2008.

It has since gained in value substantially, garnering $105 million in the most recent sale.

The name of the new owner has not been released but we'd venture a guess they are fans of Succession.

Despite the show being filmed across the globe, such as in England, Croatia, and New Mexico, this luxurious Hamptons mansion is the standout backdrop for the series.

The property, featured on TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, has boasted neighbors including Jimmy Buffet, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Jennifer Lopez.

It was listed with Cody and Zachary Vichinsky of Bespoke, Ellen Steron of William Pitt, and Julia B. Fee of Sotheby’s International Realty and was placed on the market four years ago at $175 million, before being reduced to $145 million three years ago.

Not much upstairs and a right mess downstairs (not Katie Price, her house)

WEDNESDAY night, at 9pm, on Channel 4, Katie Price began talking. 

An hour later, she finally stopped.

6The mucky mansion has become a physical expression of all Katie’s inner turmoil and insecurities, which are vast

In between times? There was a relentless drone of psychobabble, egomania, innuendo and self-pity, punctuated by the odd DIY tip. But what all of it meant? I’ve no proper idea, as I reckon you’d need a team of behavioural scientists, doctors and zoologists to get inside this girl’s noggin.

I think, though, we can firmly put the blame for Katie Price’s Mucky Mansion on Clarkson’s Farm, an Amazon series that was so brilliant and funny, rival channels are now prepared to give pretty much any celebrity with a few spare country acres and a career hiatus their own fly-on-the-wall series.

BBC1’s got Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure, Charlotte Church is doing something with her Welsh spa on a fringe network and Channel 4 has a ten-bedroom wreck in Sussex that’s almost as flattered by the description “mucky” as Katie is by the words “author, designer and political campaigner”.

The place is a s**thole. Thieves have ransacked the entire gaff, Harvey’s smashed the windows, two dogs and a horse have died on the premises, a couple of boyfriends have probably fled before soft rot set in and as Mucky Madam herself admitted: “If I walked through that front door it would give me ann-ziety.”

Yeah, bloody Ann Ziety, the slag.

The place has become a physical expression of all Katie’s inner turmoil and insecurities, which are vast, because the basic equation at play here is that the more restoration work she did to herself, the less got done to the house.

To the extent Katie now looks like a startled version of Anneka Rice and it’s often difficult to tell whether the narrator, James Thornton, and Katie are actually referring to the house or her. “It’s empty, echoey, cold and needs bringing back to life.” (The house.)

“Katie’s plastic floorboards need to be pulled up.” (The house.)

“I need a lot of wood downstairs.” (Definitely Katie.)

The plan now, of course, is to restore one of the old eyesores (the house) to its former glory with the aid of the usual handymen and random dogsbodies who tend to turn up on these shows.

Half the joy, in fact, of Clarkson’s Farm was the brilliance of characters like Kaleb and Gerald, who were given free rein to tear Jeremy a new one, even if you couldn’t always understand a word some of them were saying and they had to be subtitled in German.

Katie, by contrast, has one long-suffering builder called Steve, who, apart from the moment she dropped a chimney pot on her roof, seems entirely indifferent to the cack-handed din going on next to him.

Katie hasn’t twigged, obviously, because she is too wrapped up in herself and milking a creative urge in the belief that as well as being an “author, designer and political campaigner”, she’s also got a touch of the Laurence Llewelyn-Bowens about her. All I can say to that one is, as interior designers go, Katie Price makes a great serial killer. Week one saw her take a knife to some stuffed toys, which were then mounted in son Jett’s bedroom. Week two, I’m assuming, she’ll do the same thing to a few ex-husbands and have them stuffed and mounted in her own bedroom.

I may not get to see it happen though, as, like Steve, I’d zoned out because the makeover process wasn’t half as interesting as the questions this show raised. For instance, even allowing for her £45,000 appearance fee, how does someone with as many debts as Katie afford all this rebuilding? 

6Katie now looks like a startled version of Anneka Rice

And what the hell is she even doing on Channel 4, a state-owned broadcaster whose stated purpose is to “represent unheard voices”?

Naively, I’d thought the fact Katie’s My Crazy Life had gone from Sky Living to Quest Red, before vanishing completely, meant the most over-heard voice in Britain was about to experience total and much-needed obscurity.

Channel 4, however, seems to be in the grip of some horrendous mid-life crisis, surviving off 80s-style titillation (Breastfeeding My Boyfriend etc) while regurgitating other people’s ideas and cast-offs like Katie Price.

Foolishly, some of its senior employees may also be quite thrilled the release of Mucky Mansion has coincided with Katie’s arrest on suspicion of breaching a restraining order, in the belief it will make them look edgy, rather than desperate, clapped out and in urgent need of privatisation.

Hell, they’re so deluded they could even be contemplating another series.

“Will Mucky Mansion be Katie Price’s for ever home?” the show wondered out loud on Wednesday.

At the moment? I’d like to think there’s more chance of it being Monster Mansion.

Trigger plot a bit of a dud 6What Trigger Point lacks at the moment is real tension, fully formed characters, alternative locations, back stories, or in fact any story beyond the absolute basics.

A TACTICAL error from ITV during Saturday’s edition of The John Bishop Show, where they displayed a “Countdown to Trigger Point” clock at the top of the screen, rather than a “Countdown to the end of The John Bishop Show”.

Which is a bit harsh, maybe.

John’s no worse at hosting a chat show than, say, the next competition winner and probably a bit better than Davina McCall. But it helped create an unreasonable air of expectation around Trigger Point, which seems like a perfectly serviceable police procedural drama overseen by executive producer Jed Mercurio, of Line Of Duty fame, who’s wrenched a couple of decent performances out of Vicky McClure and Adrian Lester as two police bomb disposal experts, Lana Washington and Joel Nutkins. 

What Trigger Point lacks at the moment is real tension, fully formed characters, alternative locations, back stories, or in fact any story beyond the absolute basics.

An organised East London terrorist cell has planted three bombs and locked some whimpering nuisance called Phelan in the boot of his car. According to the witnesses, they were also talking “English and Arabic”, which prompted a question from Washington and probably a knowing shrug of the shoulders from anyone who’s been watching Screw or EastEnders recently.

“You think it’s Islamist?”

What? On telly? I’d round up the local white supremacists first, if I were you. It’ll probably save time.

Unexpected morons in the bagging area

THE Weakest Link, Romesh Ranganathan: “What B is a common name for the Yeoman warders who guard the Tower of London?”

Chunkz: “Border Control.”

Romesh: “According to a common proverb a bird in the hand is worth two in the what?”

Jamie Laing: “Pocket.”

Tipping Point, Ben Shephard: “Famously used by Sir Francis Drake, The Golden Hind was what mode of transport?”

Stuart: “Car.”

Tipping Point, Ben Shephard: “The Madchester music scene was most closely associated with which city in north-west England?”

Bernie: “Newcastle.”

INCIDENTALLY, during those very brief moments when Football Focus isn’t now lecturing fans about sexism and racism, three letters have come to the fore and it’s . . . oh, what’s the expression?

Ashley Williams: “It’s good for your club’s DNA to go all the way from the top to the bottom.”

Rachel Brown-Finnis: “Southampton have that DNA throughout the age groups.”

Rachel Brown-Finnis: “There’s no DNA at Everton.”

Ashley Williams: “You’re talking about Everton having a DNA, Leeds have a definite DNA.”

Stupidity, it’s in the Football Focus DNA.

6Multi-millionaire Charlotte Church told Monday’s This Morning: 'I’m a socialist'

BOLDLY putting herself and her new wellness spa on the same pedestal as the NHS, lovably self-effacing multi-millionaire Charlotte Church told Monday’s This Morning: “I’m a socialist. This is taking a house out of private ownership and making it something which is healing and for the people, know what I mean?”

Great! It’s free then? Put me down for a month of chanting and aromatherapy in September, Charl.

Great sporting insights 6Wise words from Paul Merson

PAUL MERSON: “If we all named one player that definitely plays every weekend we’d all say Rudiger and the goalie. Then we’d say Mount.”

Michael Dawson: “Declan Rice is the finished article and he can only improve.”

Clinton Morrison: “I don’t know why Benitez went to Everton. I know why he went. Money.”

Random TV irritations

ALL of the dancing atrocities performed in Robert Burns’s name on Steph’s Packed Lunch.

 The macabre and weird fascination that both ITV and BBC have with mass murderer Dennis Nilsen. A Question Of Sport destroying its own USP with bookings like Will Mellor.

Good Morning Britain’s presenters confusing their political gloating with compassion. And Saturday’s Football Focus devoting over 12 minutes to a discussion about supporters’ sexism while apparently not having one spare second to mention the midweek Arsenal/Liverpool EFL Cup semi-final.

Exactly the sort of monstrous self-indulgence that will continue to be funded by the very people the BBC so clearly abhors until someone has the balls to scrap the licence fee.

CLARIFICATION: Celebs Go Dating, Towie’s Chloe Brockett: “I don’t know why I’m still single, I’m pedigree, hun.”

Chum, Chloe. You’re Pedigree CHUM. 

WINTER Olympics, funny foreign name alert: Kong Fanying. A Chinese skier and also the original working title for Skull Island.

TV Gold

 RED ELVIS: The Cold War Cowboy (Sky Documentaries). BBC2’s beautiful Survivors: Portraits Of The Holocaust. 

The admirable Jay Blades: Learning To Read At 51. And the best show of 2022 so far, BBC1’s police drama The Responder, where an outstanding cast is brilliantly led by Martin Freeman as urgent response officer Chris Carson, who, as well as being in therapy and debt to the local gangster, has to cope with finding corpses who’ve died watching Escape To The Country. Which is NOT the way I’d like to go. A Place In The Sun, with Laura Hamilton, maybe. But please, God, not Escape To The Country.
