The property empire of Paul Kemsley, the former vice-chairman of Tottenham Hotspur and guest on The Apprentice television show, has collapsed into administration.

Kemsley founded Rock in 1995 and its assets include New York properties, the former Burberry headquarters in Haymarket, London, and Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park football ground.

However, last Thursday PricewaterhouseCoopers was appointed administrator to the primary holding companies – Rock Joint Ventures Limited, Rock Investment Holdings, and Birchridge Limited.
