Anton Du Beke Strictly salary: The staggering net worth Strictly star has amassed

Strictly Come Dancing is ramping up for the big launch of Series 17. Fans have been excited to hear a seasoned pro will be paired with actress Emma Barton this year. In series 16, Anton and partner Susannah Constantine placed 15th, eliminated in the second episode, so Anton will be hoping for a stronger run this year!

What is Anton Du Beke’s net worth?

Professional dancers on Strictly reportedly earn around £30,000 per season.

However, seasoned pros like Anton, who has worked in every one of the 16 Strictly seasons, will earn more, in the field of £35,000 per season.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, this salary, as well as Anton’s other ventures in TV, singing and writing, has earned the dancer quite a tidy sum.

Estimates are around £8 million for Anton’s total net worth.

While this is certainly nothing to scoff at, there have been issues in the past with some of the pro dancers feeling disgruntled at their pay packet in comparison to Strictly’s judges.

The dancers work up to 14 hours a day training their celebrity partners and are responsible for choreographing the weekly group dances.

The judges can earn as much as £250,000 per season.

The dancers were furious in 2012 when they got a £500 wage rise and the judges received a £20,000 pay boost.

Brendan Cole – who reportedly earns around £35,000 – told Now magazine: “My money from Strictly just about pays the bills. I don’t have a car.

“I would like to get one but until then I’m on the Tube. I don’t even own my house. I can’t afford it. I rent where I live.”

However, judge Bruno Tonioli is not sympathetic to the dancers.

He told The Mirror: “Those are the terms of the negotiations. If you don’t like it, stop moaning and f**k off!”

Each celebrity is given a standard £25,000 payment for signing up, but if they manage to stay on the dance floor until the end of October this then rises to £40,000.

Any star that makes it to the quarter-finals sees their fee jump to £60,000; that figure then climbs to £75,000 if they last an extra week and get into the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, the Strictly winner will be paid £100,000.
