The decision coincides with the news that the computer tycoon has regained the top spot as the world’s richest person, according to Forbes magazine’s annual ranking of global billionaires.

Speaking to a representatives of the media from around the world, Gates explained that his immense riches weren’t enough unless he could have a special big potatoes name to go with it.

“I’m sick of people calling me Bill or Mr Gates, it doesn’t do my immense wealth justice.  I’m the richest man in the world and I shit diamonds. I frequently take a bath in caviar and I need a name that does justice to my huge potatoes.

“You people go into pound or dollar shops and buy useless shit which you don’t really want but you buy because it’s so cheap. I go into million pound or dollar shops and buy platinum diamond encrusted shit that I don’t really want. I’m so rich that I sometimes order a pizza when I’m not hungry and then I don’t even eat it!”

One member of the public told us that Mr Big Potatoes nee Gates would have his full support.”When a quarter of the world are suffering absolute poverty, it’s uplifting to know that Bill’s got 76 billion dollars in his bank account. And if he doesn’t get himself a gangsta name to go with it, it would seem a bit vulgar” he explained.

Meanwhile the richest man in Britain the Duke of Westminster is reported to have changed his name. To Sir Johnny Big Potatoes.
