A TV personality and businessman who enjoys the title of Britain’s ‘richest Gypsy’ turned heads when he helicopter-landed at a Cornish campsite – to the surprise of guests. The helicopter appeared “randomly” from the sky, landing at the campsite in Indian Queens.

Guests watched in confusion as he landed on the grass within sight of the rest of the site. A few figures emerged from it, before returning inside a short time later.

The main character who emerged from the helicopter, eyewitness Callum Stephenson told CornwallLive, was businessman Alfie Best. The millionaire real estate investor and business owner was in the area for unknown reasons, and after a while he was back in the sky.

Mr Stephenson told CornwallLive the helicopter operator confirmed he was carrying Best, alongside two others. The side of the helicopter itself revealed the game somewhat – with the “G-YPSE” label adorned on the side.

Best, of Romany descent, has over the years earned Britain’s wealthiest gypsy label through his business ventures. Most recently he bought a holiday park in Sennen for £2.7million.

He has risen to prominence over the years as a controversial figure, appearing on Channel 4’s My Big Fat Gypsy Fortune, ITV’s Undercover Big Boss – and through his donations to the Conservative Party.

While appearing on the ITV show, Best said he felt like he had lost touch with his property business, so he went undercover as a drainage worker. Asked about the experience, Alfie said: “We got it wrong along the way.

“It’s obvious, but our failures make us better and our successes keep us going. I’d love to do it again in a few years and see how much it’s changed.”
