He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Bird Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Guildford Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbird - England), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Simon) and a fashion line called “Simon Bird Seduction”.
