A photographer has shared a memory of how he got revenge on Sir Philip Green after he was unpleasant and rude during a shoot at his Arcadia office balcony on Oxford Street.
Jake Walters posted an image of the Topshop billionaire being made to look like a bit of a pr*ck after the nasty encounter.
Uploading it on Instagram he said: “My portrait of Sir Philip Greed sorry Green taken on his Arcadia office balcony on Oxford Street.
“He was unpleasant and rude to me and my assistant when we arrived to photograph him for @guardianweekend.
“So I thought… well if it’s ok for you to act like a prick, it must be ok for me to make you look like one. So I did.”
Jake added that the Guardian did not end up using that particular shot “I tried to persuade them but I’m afraid they didn’t,” he said. “Still, my portrait lives on.”

The picture has come to light after Arcadia Group collapsed into administration this week, putting tens of thousands of jobs at Topshop, Dorothy Perkins and Burton at risk.
Sir Keir Starmer warned the collapse of the group and Debenhams in recent days threatens to “rip the heart out” of many high streets across the country.
He pressed Mr Johnson to act during their exchanges at Prime Minister’s Questions.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
