Strictly Come Dancing is one of the biggest shows on TV – but are the celebs paid to attend?
Only five stars remain in the competition, the quarter-finals will be broadcast on Saturday (December 4th).
But unlike other reality shows, including I’m a Celebrity, any star who signs up on Strictly receives the same flat fee to -pear and can’t negotiate with producers.
According to The Sun, each celeb, including ex-EastEnders star Nina Wadia, McFly singer Tom Fletcher and retired rugby pro Ugo Monye, received £ 25,000 for the performance.
Turns out there is more incentive to stay in the competition until the end – not only could you win the honor of taking home the Glitzerball trophy, but the fees are said to go up to £ 40,000 if you can make it by the end of October.
The five remaining contestants – EastEnders’ Rose Ayling-Ellis, Breakfast’s Dan Walker, GBBO star John Whaite, C Rhys Stephenson and TV personality AJ Odudu – have reportedly earned £ 60,000 for reaching the quarter-finals.
