An art dealer ex of Made in Chelsea star Victoria Baker-Harber faces 20 years in a US prison over a £16 million scam.   

Inigo Philbrick, 34, admitted to conning investors out of millions of pounds and told a judge he did it all ‘for the money’.

When the ‘serial swindler’ was uncovered in November 2019, he failed to appear for court hearings in both London and Miami, cities in which he owns art galleries, before he was eventually arrested by the FBI on the Pacific island of Vanuatu. 

A court heard the lucrative scam financed his lavish ‘lifestyle’, with Philbrick appearing as an expert on art business conferences and his offices registered in Grosvenor Street, Mayfair.

He also has a baby with Ms Baker-Harber, 33, whom he began dating in 2017.

His then partner gave birth to daughter Gaia in November last year, with the Made in Chelsea socialite posting pictures of her first birthday on Instagram earlier this month.
