Jamie Laing, 31, has had a successful career in the TV industry and has recently been announced as being part of this year’s Strictly Come Dancing line up. However his career didn’t take off until a few years ago. He was born and raised in Oxford and attended private school for the whole of his life before pursuing theatre and performance at Leeds University. How has he made his fortune?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jamie Laing is worth a whopping £7.5million.
After graduating university and creating his business whilst he was there, Jamie worked a few low paid jobs before his sweet and clothing company took off.
Candy Kittens has earned the actor a fortune and consists of gummy sweets as well as a clothing line offering leisurewear like hoodies and T-shirts.
He revealed in an interview that the turnover from his first opening night was a staggering £25,000.
Jamie’s great-grandfather, Alexander Grant, invented the popular digestive biscuit, the Jaffa cake as well and the Rich Tea around 120 years ago in Edinburgh.
This didn’t stop Jamie creating his own name and has also featured on many TV shows including Would I Lie to You?, Celebrity Juice and Through the Keyhole.
He has added to his wealth by publishing a cookbook, Candy Kittens: Recipes for Sweet Treats which was released in 2013.
The book includes easy recipes on how to bake cupcakes and biscuits and is still available on Amazon.
From one TV star to another, Holly Willoughby has built up a staggering fortune throughout the years she has been presenting.
According to Spears Magazine, the This Morning co-host is worth a whopping £10million.
Holly’s career began when she was just 14 as she signed to a modelling agency where she modelled for teenage magazines.
She then appeared on six seasons of Dancing on Ice with Philip Schofield who she now presents ITV’s This Morning with.
The pair are both said to earn £600,000 a year from presenting the show after Holly took a £200,000 pay rise to match Phillip’s three years ago.
