Comments Off on TOWIE's original cast prove reality TV can be a real money spinner

It may be one of Britain’s favourite light entertainment shows, but for the original cast, Towie has turned out to be a way of making serious amounts of money.

The five of the reality show’s first series, screened in 2010, have gone on to snare endorsement deals, appearances on other TV shows and even record deals.

Here’s what the Mail Online estimates they are worth now:

Mark Wright

The central character of the initial Towie series left the show in 2011 and went on to appear in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and Strictly Come Dancing.

He also fronted a shortlived US-based programme,Mark Wright’s Hollywood Nights, as well as Party Wright Around the World and landed presenting roles on Take Me Out: The Gossip and Surprise Surprise.

He now presents a Heart Radio.

Estimated worth: £4 million.

Lauren Goodger

Goodger outlasted ex-boyfriend Wright on Towie, leaving in 2012.

She followed it up with a stint on Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Big Brother.

She currently has a column with new magazine and business interested including fake tan, lashes and hair extension ranges.

Estimated worth: £2 million.

Sam Faiers

After her time on Towie, which included a high profile romance with Joey Essex, Faiers also went on to become a Celebrity Big Brother housemate, before putting out a fragrance and fake tan products and creating a fitness website.

Lucy Mecklenburgh

Mecklenburgh’s three years on Towie paved the way for deals with fashion brand PrettyLittleThing and a spot on BBC programme Tumble, where she met current boyfriend Louis Smith.

Her fitness website Results With Lucy also has a strong following.

Estimated worth: £2.5 million.

Amy Childs

Childs left after just two series, but has managed to make the most of her post-Towie career.

She also became a Celebrity Big Brother contestant,starred in her own Towie spin-off, All About Amy, and nabbed a place on snowsports reality show the Jump.

She can add a growing business empire to her TV career, thanks to lines in eyelashes, beauty products, a fitness DVD and calendar.

Estimate worth: £5 million.

Jessica Wright

Mark’s sister Jessica remains a Towie cast member, but she juggles filming with a modelling contract for Ann Summers swimwear as well as promotional commitments.

She had a three-single record deal, but failed to top the charts.

Estimated worth: £4 million.
