Romesh Ranganathan laughs to the bank as his company Vetty Limited cashes in over £1m in a year after the value more than doubled from £1.4m to £2.5m pound sterling.
Comedian Romesh Ranganathan’s company took over £1million last year and doubled in value.
The former maths teacher showed he knows how to add up the numbers as the value of his business soared to £1.7million after paying all his bills.
Vetty Limited’s assets rose to £2.5m, up from £1.4m, but creditors owed almost £800,000 which meant the company was left with a reduced bottom line .

Romesh, 44, runs the business, believed to be named after his father who died in 2011, with his wife Leesa, 42.
He has become one of the BBC’s biggest stars and last year landed the plum job as presenter of The Weakest Link.
The business channels his TV revenue, but he also owns a separate TV company now worth over £300,000 called Ranga Bee Productions.

In addition to television appearances, he has his own Hip Hop Saved My Life podcast and is set to do a stand-up comedy tour called Cynic’s Mixtape.
It comes after Romesh moved into a new £3million home just five miles from the humble terraced house where he grew up.
Despite becoming one of Britain’s most sought-after TV stars, the comedian has avoided celebrity enclaves and opted instead to build a six-bedroom property in his hometown of Crawley in the West Sussex.

The comedian, his wife Leesa and their three children have recently moved in, although workers are still digging the pool and putting the finishing touches on the red brick house.
It’s a far cry from the small house next door where he grew up with his Sri Lankan parents, Shanthi and Ranga, and younger brother Dinesh.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: ‘Romesh could have moved somewhere but he decided to stay in Crawley where his roots are. It’s where his mother and brother are and it’s a city he loves.
“He managed to find a space there to build his dream house, although it was a little bigger than his childhood home in one of Crawley’s poorer neighborhoods. It’s a great rags to riches story that Romesh worked very hard for.
