Designer wardrobes, amazing cars and champagne-fuelled parties. These stars have come a long way from their humble reality TV beginnings, but just how do they afford the A-list lifestyle?

As part of its annual Reality TV's Richest list, The Sun has tallied up what many of the world's most well-known stars are worth – starting with a few you most definitely recognise from your hungover Sunday TV viewing.

Read on, and prepare to feel all the life envy.

Charlotte Crosby – €1.4million

It's been a very successful year indeed for Ms. Crosby, who has seen her worth soar since launching her own fitness DVD off the back of her extreme weight loss. Charlotte's 3 Minute Belly Blitz twice outsold Disney's Frozen in UK DVD sales when it was released late last year.

Add that to a €100k book deal for her autobiography Me Me Me, plus a €70k appearance fee for Ex On The Beach, and you've got a tidy sum building up in Charlotte's bank account. The Geordie Shore star has also appeared on The Xtra Factor, Britain’s Got More Talent, Celebrity Juice, This Morning and The Wright Stuff among other things.


Vicky Pattison – €2.3million

She might count Charlotte among her biggest rivals, but Vicky is definitely taking the lead in the money stakes. As well as a six-figure deal for her own clothing range with style site Honeyz.com, Vicky took home a reported €700k for a three-book deal with the Little Brown Book Group.

The Geordie Shore star has published an autobiography, Nothing But The Truth, plus two fictional novels, All That Glitters and A Christmas Kiss. Like Charlotte, she earned around €70k for her work on Ex On The Beach, and got close to €500,000 for her MTV show, Judge Geordie.


Millie Mackintosh – €4.2million

One half of Britain's most on-trend power couple, Millie wed rapper Professor Green in 2013. Like other entrants, she has raked in quite a bif of cash from her book deal – the Made In Chelsea star's lifestyle and fitness book Made saw her take home around €175k.

She also has her own self-named fashion line which sells via her personal site and on ASOS.com – and according to The Sun it's turning over in excess of €1.5m per year. The stunning blonde is the face of Nib & Fab beauty products and J20 fruit drinks, as well as having worked on campaigns for Pimm’s, St Tropez, Sure, Lipsy and Claire’s.


Gemma Collins – €4.6million

She might not be the most reliable of celebs – who can forget her dramatic exit from I'm A Celebrity... last year, after all – but Gemma certainly knows how to negotiate. Critics laughed when she decided to set up her own plus-size clothing range, but it's now sold via Littlewoods, Evans and her own personal site and generates around €1.7m a year for Emma.

Aside from her ill-fated time on I'm A Celebrity, Gemma also does regular work on This Morning.


Sam Faiers – €6.4million

Expectant mum Sam certainly won't be struggling to kit out her newborn in all the best designer clothes. As well as (you've guessed it) a book deal, Sam also rakes in a huge amount of cash from her various fashion ventures.

Among them is the Essex boutique she launched with her sister Billie, Minnie's Boutique, thought to be earning Sam close to €1.4m in online and in-store sales annually. The TOWIE alum has her own clothes deal with Very too, worth a reported €400,000.


Mark Wright – €7.4million

When your wedding alone earns you over €2million with Hello! you know you're doing well.

Mark's €400k DJing deal with Club Classics helps to play the bills, plus he also pulls in over €10k per club appearance – handy money for a night out. The reality star has recently signed a six-figure deal with Danone, too.


Mark Wright might be shacked up with Michelle Keegan these days, but he's still interested in meeting new women… namely, you.

The TV star is volunteering to spend a day working as a "hunky helper" for one very lucky fan.

He'll call over to your house, do the ironing, welcome guests, make you a cuppa… all the while looking oh-so gorgeous.

The bizarre (but amazing) prize is part of a competition run by Okyos yoghurt, and it's open to entrants in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Win!

According to the T&C's, Mark will be on hand to perform "a range of tasks chosen by the winner from a pre-approved set list of chores."

Sounds like a pretty good deal to us.

Making house calls isn't the only way the DJ has been slumming it of late, either.

Earlier this week he ditched his sleek black BMW for London's Underground, telling followers on Instagram that the traffic had gotten too heavy to handle.


London traffic has finally defeated me !! #tubelife

Wonder if Michelle approves of all these lifestyle changes?


Michelle Keegan has finally opened up about trying to get pregnant with her husband, Mark Wright.

The former Corrie actress admitted she "wasn't bothered" when people asked when she would be having children, reports OK Online.

Michelle also said that she found the speculation of her being pregnant "funny" when she was spotted wearing baggy clothes.

Speaking to Star Magazine, Ms Keegan revealed that she would have a family with her husband "when the time was right."

"It doesn't bother me. It's the next natural step to happen after getting married."

"I find it funny though when I wear a baggy top and everyone goes, 'Oh, she's pregnant!"

"It will happen when it happens. And when it does it will be the right time for us."

Only last week, Michelle revealed her new a/w line for Lipsy and it was GORGEOUS. 


They're the gorgeous couple who have been inseparable since first meeting three years ago in Dubai.

Certainly, Mark and Michelle's glitzy summer wedding proved the high-point of what has very much been a picture-perfect, fairytale romance.

Still, as they both forge ahead with their respective careers, it seems that the love-birds are about to embark on their first big challenge of married life: a long period of separation.

Ms Keegan, 28, has now revealed that filming for BBC's five-part Our Girl drama will take her to Africa for a full three months in early 2016.

And she's not even sure if her 28-year-old reality TV star husband will be able to visit her.


Date night.

In conversation with the Sun On Sunday, the actress admitted: "I'm out there for a long time. Obviously I'll miss him and I'll miss home.

"But it's my first job working away properly and I'm just excited for the challenge.

"If Mark can come out then he will pay me a visit. It'll be tough but worth it."



Michelle Keegan is known for her impeccable style, but even she can't be on top form all of the time.

The fashion queen obviously wasn't in the mood to impress anyone at her latest photoshoot, and decided instead to make comfort her top priority.

Behind-the-scenes snaps from her AW15 Lipsy shoot reveal that while she was definitely glam as usual from the ankle up, Michelle's feet weren't looking quite so stylish.

With her legs and feet off camera for the snaps, the former Coronation Street star chose cosiness over style, opting for a pair of fluffy white and purple slippers to cover her feet.

And ditching her usual sleek tailored trousers, the star instead wore faded bootleg flares with her Lipsy winter wear.

It's lucky that Michelle can look good in just about anything, or we'd definitely have to get the Fashion Police on the phone…

Speaking about her style ethos in an interview earlier this year, Michelle said she always aims to keep her look as practical possible.

"I’ll look at my schedule for that day to see what meetings or events I’ll be going to," she said of her outfit choices.

"I think it’s really important to feel comfortable in whatever you wear."

As for her biggest fashion no-no, the actress said she avoids anything too revealing.

"Don’t show too much flesh," she advised. "I’ve always been a firm believer in either getting out legs or boobs, not both."

And while this particular style mishap was definitely intentional, Michelle has had her fair share of accidental slip-ups too.

Like the unfortunate creasing on her 2015 BAFTAs mint green dress:

We'd take slippers over that any day…



Michelle Keegan wants women to feel good about themselves. 

As she unveiled her new collection for fashion label Lipsy, Michelle revealed that she's passionate about making women feel good about their bodies. 

Speaking to FEMAIL, the 28-year-old said that "fashion is at its best" when it makes a person feel confident.

"No matter what anyone wears, as long as they feel comfortable and confident, it shows," she said. "That's when fashion is at its best."

Michelle said that her new autumn range complements her previous line as it is filled with dressy evening looks, easy daytime pieces and day-to-date outfits that will see you through the whole season. 

"You're going to see a lot more darker, warmer colours like blacks and greys for winter."

"In this one we've gone for dressy-dresses that you can wear to Christmas parties or dinner dates and we've got really cool knits for the cold weather."

Of course, Michelle showcases every piece of the collection with perfection in the new campaign shots released by the label.

"Strategically placed lace to help women feel more feminine," she added about the new feel-good clothes. 

Michelle and husband Mark Wright (who broke his foot yesterday) enjoyed a night out at the TV Choice Awards on Monday, which was held at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane In London. 




They've just returned from a joint work trip to Ibiza, but Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan got a severe dose of reality today.

The newlywed couple spent the morning in hospital after Mark broke his foot in a mysterious accident.

They've been holing up at home all day, with Mark admitting he's been feeling sorry for himself in front of the telly.

"When you break a bone, there's only one thing to do, sit, chill, watch films and eat biscuits!!" he wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of his crutch and a half-eaten jar of biscuits.

The pair were papped by OK! returning to their Essex home today, looking decidedly frazzled as Mark hobbled inside on crutches.

Michelle was dressed in a casual all-black ensemble with a sweater reading, "I have nothing to wear."

Last week the glamourous pair hit the beach in Ibiza, where Lipsy were hosting a Sunday event at the Ocean Club Spray Party. 

Having just launched a new collection for Lipsy, Michelle was a special guest on the day, while Mark was booked to DJ the event.

"It was SO much fun, we had our own big booth right behind the DJ box and there were these amazing ladies doing acrobatic moves on silks above our heads," Michelle wrote in her Hello! blog this week.

Something tells us Mark won't be attending any beach parties for a while, but if his most recent Instagram post is anything to go by he's not that bothered…


Perfect, toy story 3 just started !!

Beats Ibiza any day!


‘Round these parts, we’re BIG fans of Michelle Keegan.

That definitely includes her seriously stylish wardrobe too.

From her always on-fleek approach to the red-carpet, to her beach-side attire – not to mention THAT incredible custom-made wedding dress – Ms Keegan is one fashionable addition to current showbiz circuit.

However, proving that just about everyone can have an off-day, the 28-year-old looked somewhat older than her years at the TV Choice awards, which took place last night in London’s Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.

Attending with her husband, Mark Wright, also 28, the actress donned a bright fuchsia dress by the diffusion line Michael, Michael Kors.

Michelle accessorised with dance-style metallic and purple sandals and also carried a pale box clutch.

And while we can see the midi-hem, high-neck with ¾-length sleeve number working well for a day-time event, it seemed out-of-place among the glamorous red-carpet gowns worn by her fellow guests.

Still, Mark managed to up the ante with a smart grey jacket with subtle pin-stripe, sleek black pants and a low-set matching waistcoat.

The former reality TV star finished off his outfit with a black pocket-square and skinny black tie complete with tie-pin.

Other attendees to sport formal wear included BGT presenter Amanda Holden, who looked incredible in full-length, figure-hugging black, and Towie stars James Argent and Lydia Bright – both of whom were certainly dressed-to-impress.


Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan made things official when they married in a lavish country ceremony back in May, but are they ready for the next step?

With the excitement of their big day and their two-destination honeymoon finally dying down, the couple have started talking family plans… but they're content to take their time.

While he admits he would love to have a baby with Michelle, Mark says the pair are not ready to become parents just yet. "I am so excited to hopefully one day be a dad, but it's not going to be any time soon," the 28-year-old told new! magazine this week.

The newlyweds might not be trying for a baby at the moment, but Mark's already thought about whether he'd like a boy or a girl. "I want both!" he admits.

As for Michelle, she previously revealed that she had planned to start a family much earlier, but that things didn't quite go to plan. "I always thought I was going to be a really young mum. I always had in my head that I was going to have a baby at 22 or 23," the 28-year-old revealed to Star magazine shortly after her wedding to Mark. "Obviously that didn't happen!"

Like her husband, the former Coronation Street actress seems happy to wait a while longer to have kids, even if the delay doesn't follow her original five year plan. "When you have a child everything changes, and at the moment I'm really lucky with my life and I don't want anything to change just yet."

Mark and Michelle have definitely been making the most of their freedom of late, with numerous trips abroad over the last three months alone.

Since returning from The Maldives and Dubai on a two week honeymoon, the couple have covered Marbella, Ibiza, Gibraltar, Los Angeles AND New York between them.

Definitely no time for a baby just yet…



A former Geordie Shore star, and now published author has revealed that she is not a fan of one half of the genetically blessed Wright duo.

Charlotte Crosby, 25, spoke with Star magazine recently and did not hold back when it came to her opinion on Mark’s career, and his personality.

She was asked if she would ever consider joining the cast of Strictly Come Dancing and responded by saying she heard the show can be a bit snobby.

When she was told that former TOWIE cast member Mark has taken part in the past, her response was certainly honest:

“I don't know why, but people bow down to him as if he's some kind of king.”

She also added, “He’s quite shit and he doesn’t have that much of a personality.”

Charlotte, who has previously revealed that I’m a Celebrity have said they don’t want any Geordie Shore stars on their show as they are not very “family-friendly”, also had questions about Mark’s career.

"Why does he keeping getting work?!" she asked the magazine.

Mark was previously a semi-professional football player, and as well as Strictly he presented Take Me Out: The Gossip. While Charlotte has said she would love to get into the jungle, Mark has managed to get there already before her.

In 2011 he was runner up in the reality competition, coming second to Dougie Poynter, McBusted member and boyfriend of Ellie Goulding.

Charlotte may have her doubts about Mark’s career prospects but he has been in the U.S recently taking a serious of meetings in Hollywood with his wife Michelle Keegan. So we suppose only time will tell if Charlotte’s analysis proves correct or not.

While Mark seems to be basking in newlywed bliss, Charlotte has also revealed recently that she and boyfriend Mitch Jenkins are split up for the second time. 

She told an Australian radio station: 

"I just thought right I just need to cool things off, so I got back from Greece and I finished things and we haven't been back together ever since. I think that's it now."

The pair has dated for 18 months before she returned to the Geordie Shore and then reunited not long after Charlotte had unveiled her dramatic weight loss following the series finishing filming.


Michelle Keegan and husband Mark Wright are definitely dedicated to their fitness regimes, they have plenty of Instagram snaps to prove it too.

While the pair have been spending time in the U.S recently, they managed to commit to their gruelling workout schedule. Despite being busy in LA for a week of exciting business meetings, Michelle took the time to share a video of Mark out for a jog in the scorching California sun.

Wisely opting to accompany her husband of almost three months by bike, Michelle looked pretty pleased with herself.

After their week in the sun, the pair jetted off to the East Coast to spend some time with Mark’s family.

The duo enjoyed a romantic picnic for two in NYC’s Central Park. Posing for a sunny snap the two twosome could be seen conveniently located beneath the ‘Essex House’ building. We imagine this was much to Essex native Mark’s delight.

Meanwhile Michelle was finding her inner zen as she took some time to practice her yoga poses.

In her latest blog post for Hello! Michelle kept her fans in the loop about the genetically blessed pair’s American adventures.

She said the pair had been invited to stay at Mark’s uncle’s house in The Hamptons, and she was very excited to get to visit the picturesque location.

She recalled how her favourite TV series Sex and the City had an episode where Carrie and co. hopped on the Hamptons Jitney for a girls weekend.

Michelle wrote, “It’s a very relaxing and friendly place,” and they spent most of their time on the beach.

The pair were also keen to keep with their fitness schedule while relaxing too it seems:

“Every morning we borrowed some bikes and did a 5km bike round the village (basically for a nosey at some of the huge houses here!)”

She said that after the “pace of LA” The Hamptons was the “perfect wind-down week”.

We’re only a little bit jealous, honestly.


They've been in LA for a week for a series of exciting meetings – but that didn't stop Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright from maintaining their tough fitness regimes. 

As they wrapped up their Californian stay, Ms Keegan took to Instagram to share a video of her husband of two-and-a-half months going for a gruelling run in the LA heat.

The actress is also well-known for her own intense gym schedule, however, she evidently didn't quite feel that she'd be able to keep up with super-fit Mark. 

Instead, she wisely chose to travel by bicycle – also taking the opportunity to capture the exercise efforts of her spouse on film.

In the resulting video she shared with her 2million followers, the 28-year-old said she was putting Mark "through his paces". She also set the clip to Eighties classic, Eye Of The Tiger, by US band, Survivor

And despite having a sweet tooth, Mark, 28, looks in incredible shape as he runs topless on a residential road in LA.

The duo have spent the week at the five star Mondrian hotel on the Sunset Strip. It is believed that they will now spend some down-time travelling across America before returning to their home in England.


Putting him through his paces!! @wrighty_
