Claudia Winkleman, 46, is one of the most recognisable faces on British television, being a presenter, model, critic and journalist.

The star is also the co-host of Strictly Come Dancing, bursting back onto television screens tonight for the 2018 series.

Claudia is hosting the show alongside Tess Daly, a role that she has had since 2012 when Bruce Forsyth sadly passed away.

All set for the 2018 series of Strictly, how much is Claudia Winkleman actually worth?

For the last two years, the London-born star was the BBC’s highest-paid female, bringing in a staggering £450,000-£499,999 salary in 2016-2017.

The highest paid male on the list was Chris Evans, who earned £2.2 million a year – four times as much as the highest-paid woman, Claudia.

Due to media scrutiny over the BBC’s “talent list”, Claudia and other BBC talents took a pay cut, with her salary dropping to £370,000-£379,999 – still an impressive amount.

According to, Claudia now has a whopping net worth of around $12 million (£9 million).

The majority of her income is from her role as presenter on Strictly Come Dancing, but she also hosts the BBC Radio 2 Show, Claudia on Sunday.

Bumping up her income, Claudia also reportedly receives £75,000 for her Sunday Times Style Magazine column.

Putting her substantial earnings to good use, Claudia lives in the highly-sought after area of Bayswater in London.

The 46-year-old lives with her film producer husband, Kris Thykier, and their three children Jake, 14, Matilda, eight and Arthur, six.

But Claudia has worked hard for her big paycheque, starting her career almost 30 years ago when she presented on the regional discussion programme, Central Weekend.

In 1992 she landed the role that would see her through to the late nineties, appearing on the BBC series, Holiday.

Following that Claudia gained her first day-time role as a host on the BBC Three show Liquid news.

Since then, Claudia has become one of the most well-known presenters in the country, presented Fame Academy and Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two.

In 2014 she was announced as the new co-host for the 12th series of Strictly Come Dancing, joining show stalwart, Tess Daly.

Another presenter who is appearing on Strictly Come Dancing tonight, but as a contestant, is Katie Piper.

Katie has created a successful career after being the victim of an acid attack which left her blind in one eye.

She was announced as the first contestant for the 2018 series of the show, but what is her net worth?
