Strictly rich list reveals surprise stars enjoying £1m payday – as savvy pros invest in property & Goop-style brands | The Sun
IT’S the Strictly friendship which just keeps on giving – and the bromance between Anton du Beke and Giovanni Pernice has proved quite a cash cow.
The unlikely duo have become two of the show’s surprise super earners, bagging a reported £1million on the back of a string of projects together, from sellout stage tours to TV travelogues.
Last month the BBC announced the stars would be travelling around Spain in a follow-up to their hit debut series Anton & Giovanni’s Adventures in Sicily, which saw them explore the island where the Italian hunk was born.
The money they are making from their sidelines now dwarfs the salary they earn from their roles on the primetime BBC show.
But they’re not the only professionals who are dancing all the way to the bank.
While the Strictly pros reportedly earn between £35,000 and £50,000 for the show, they can cash in with the Live arena tour and the pro tour, banking up to £35,000 for each, as well as lucrative cruises and private ventures.

Anton du Beke – £2m
As well as bumping up his pay packet from a professional dancer’s fee to a judge’s salary of £200,000, Anton’s tours with Giovanni rake in a mint.
The 57-year-old, who was a professional on Strictly from its inception in 2004 before taking over as judge in 2021, also presented Hole in the Wall in 2009.
His net worth is estimated at £2million – including the beautiful Buckinghamshire home he shares with wife Hannah and their five-year-old twins, George and Henrietta.
