The father-of-five was spending £1,000 a day at the height of his addiction, which he kept hidden from his family, Norwich Crown Court heard when he was jailed in July 2019 for three years.
However attempts by prosecutors to get some money back under the Proceeds of Crime Act have been hit by a series of delays.
