Disgraced Tory MP Charlie Elphicke’s home sold for a whopping £700,000 profit despite him claiming Universal Credit

DISGRACED Tory MP Charlie Elphicke’s home sold for a £700,000 profit, it can be revealed — after he said he got just £51,000 of the £1.5million sale.

Elphicke, 50, told a court in November his share went on legal fees and rent on his one-bed flat.

Last month he said he was jobless and had claimed Universal Credit.

He and wife Natalie, 51, paid £825,000 in 2012 for the coastal property near Dover, Kent, and it sold for £1,525,000.

She filed for divorce after he got two years’ jail for three sex assaults.

Elphicke, now of Fulham, failed to pay £35,000 in fees since his 2020 trial but the court gave him more time to cough up.

At a hearing last month he said: “I have no job, I have no career, I am long-term unemployed.

“I am working with the job centre and my probation officer to find a new career.

“I am separated from my wife who has filed for divorce."
