Financial guru Charles Shaker blew the cash on a rare collection of nine golden bottles.

A video showed revellers holding up sparklers as 12 waiters brought in the bubbly — including a 30-litre Midas bottle that took four men to carry.

Businessman Flavio Briatore and champagne firm boss Brett Berish were among guests at the Grand Prix party at the Billionaire Club Monaco last weekend.

Shaker, 32, forked out for Armand de Brignac’s Brut Gold Dynastie collection — equal to 109 standard champagne bottles.

He said: “Buying it was such a joy and I wanted everyone to be part of the celebration.”
