SHAMELESS star Jody Latham has revealed he created a cosmetic firm worth £18 million – but his other business ventures haven’t been anywhere near as successful.

The telly favourite told how his outfit is worth the whopping amount of cash despite it only being set-up in July.

Jody says his firm Epitique has signed a money-spinning deal to supply dermal fillers for cosmetic treatments to a firm in South Korea.

But unfortunately his other companies have struggled.

He set up Intraline UK Ltd – described as being involved in physical well-being activities – in 2018 but it was dissolved without ever filing any accounts to Companies House the following year.

UK Aesthetics (Wholesale) Ltd was formed in May 2018 and dissolved in October 2019 via a compulsory strike off for not filing official documents like accounts.

And UK Aesthetics (Academy) Ltd was incorporated in 2018 – accounts filed for this firm in July show zero profit and a debt of £399.

Deansgate Aesthetics Ltd was set up in 2016 and dissolved two years later via a compulsory strike off without filing books.

UK Fillers Ltd – created in 2015 and dissolved in 2019 – filed its last accounts in 2018 where it was shown the firm owed £3,615.

And a firm called Lady Bomb Ltd – said to be linked to artistic creation – ceased trading in 2017.

The 38-year-old actor, who played Philip ‘Lip’ Gallagher in the Channel 4 series, says he got into the beauty business when he met an extra who was doing Botox injections and decided to join the industry himself.

But despite his success, Jody has claimed that he isn’t splashing out too much on a lavish lifestyle.

He said: “I live in a two-bed flat and drive a modest car. I’m pumping everything back into the company.

“It’s valued at £18million. We’ll see where we are in a couple of years. I’ve had money before but not in my hands long enough.”

However, Jody does have a flashy Audi R8 car and is seen on Instagram at events around the world, including the Monaco grand prix.

He explained: “After series one of Shameless, I went with my first wage of £21,000 and bought an Audi convertible. I didn’t even think of rent or food.”

Jody has stayed loyal to Manchester – where Shameless is set – and has become a devoted family man since finding fame on the show.

As well as appearing in Shameless, Jody had roles in EastEnders as evil pimp Rob Grayson and in Waterloo Road as Steve-O Malone.
