Strictly and YouTube star Joe Sugg banks £2 million after TV success

STRICTLY and YouTube star Joe Sugg has seen his fortune top £2 million, new accounts reveal.

Joe’s company Strawboy Ltd saw its reserves rise by £200,000 from £1.9 to £2.1 million over the year, confirming him as one of the country’s top vloggers.

The figures are all the more remarkable as just six years ago the business had reserves of just £30,000.

Business was going so well in the year up to the end of March last year, that Joe, 29, had to pay more than £100,000 in Corporation tax.

Joe, made his name with his ThatcherJoe YouTube channel which became a hit with pranks, impressions and challenges.

But in recent years he has taken on mainstream roles including making the final of Strictly Come Dancing in 2018 and last year he appeared in West End show The Waitress before the lockdown.

This year he was part of the cast of BBC One’s the Syndicate.

In his first big acting role Joe played Yorkshire lad Sam, a kennel worker, who, along with his colleagues, wins the lottery on a syndicate ticket.

Loose Women debated the fact Joe is originally from Wiltshire and whether that should have been considered during casting.

Denise Welch, who comes from the North East and has appeared in many TV shows, said she didn't mind and insisted actors shouldn't be restricted to their own area and accent.

Fellow panellist Jane Moore agreed but added it would be an issue if a part couldn't then be portrayed accurately.
