THE stars of The Only Way Is Essex are household names but do their bank balances reflect their star power?
While the Towie newbies are reported to make around £100 per day for filming, some of the show’s biggest stars have made millions from clothing lines, endorsements and their spin-off shows.
Megan McKenna is one of the stand-out stars of the current cast on the ITVbe show and she’s been topping up her earnings with lucrative make-up and clothing lines and is about to launch her own restaurant.
The 24-year-old’s star has been on the rise since she became a permanent fixture on the show last year but before then she was believed to be worth in the region of £285,000 thanks to starring on two series of MTV’s Ex On The Beach.
She also reportedly earned £30,000 for starring on the January 2016 series of Celebrity Big Brother alongside Gemma Collins, Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell.
Her beauty line, called mouthy by Megan, is a range of liquid lipsticks which sell for £29.95 which have sold out on a number of occasions no doubt earning her a pretty penny.
Megan also regularly promotes other products on her Instagram and reality stars are reported to be paid anything from £500 well into the thousands of pounds for promotional social media posts.
The brunette also rakes in the cash from her sexy calendar, club night appearances, her fashion line with Miss Pap and other investments.
