Strictly 2021 Final: Do the celebrities get paid to take part?

Last night Saturday (18 December 2021) saw the Final of Strictly Come Dancing.

But, unlike other reality shows, including I’m a Celebrity, each star who signs up to Strictly is given the same flat fee to appear and is unable to negotiate with producers.

According to The Sun, every celebrity, including ex-EastEnders star Nina Wadia, McFly singer Tom Fletcher and retired rugby pro Ugo Monye all received £25,000 to appear.

It turns out there’s more incentive to remain in the competition until the very end – not only could you win the honour of taking home the Glitterball trophy, but fees are said to rise to £40,000 if you make it to the end of October.

The five remaining contestants as of 4th December – EastEnders’ Rose Ayling-Ellis, BBC Breakfast’s Dan Walker,GBBO star John Whaite, CBBC Rhys Stephenson and TV personality AJ Odudu – have reportedly made £60,000 for getting to the quarter-finals.

Quarter-finalists, including AJ Odudu, reportedly receive £45,000 (BBC)

Should they make it another week, that will rise by £15,000 to net them £75,000 with the eventual winner earning a reported £100,000.
