SINGER Kevin Kennedy, who used to play Curly Watts in Coronation Street, is an unrepentant spender.
"I love spending. It is one of the things I really enjoy doing, as I am sure a lot of other people do too," he said.
"As I like spending, I would have to say I have a few good buys but definitely one of my favourites and best is my Manchester City season ticket. I don't know what I would do without this, it means I never have a dull moment during the season.
"One of my other best buys was the IVF treatment we paid for. It was the best money I have ever spent and from it I have two lovely daughters. I couldn't imagine not having them in my life.
"I am a real sucker for Play Station 3 games. They are a waste of money for me, though, as I can never get to the end. But instead of finishing one, I just go and buy another one -- it is a never-ending cycle.
"I guess other stuff that I continually waste money on is the usual -- chocolate and newspapers. To be honest, the endless amount of crap I seem to buy everyday is probably my biggest waste of money.
"I drive a seven-year-old BMW X5. It cost me £35,000 (€40,000). It is brilliant, it acts as my office as well as my vehicle. To me, it is priceless and the perfect touring car for when I am out and about.
