Holly Willoughby is raking in £30,000 a week as TV’s richest female star

HOLLY Willoughby is one of the UK’s most popular presenters - and now has the bank balance to go with it. 

The latest accounts for her company Roxy Media Ltd show that she’s got earnings of nearly £1.5 million in 2019 and 2020 - that’s £30,000 a week.

The 39-year-old’s had another phenomenal year presenting This Morning and Dancing On Ice and now only Ant and Dec earn more on TV.

Holly’s company is worth £1,432,039 - and has £1,430,377 cash in the bank.

The much-loved host also has lucrative partnership deals with Marks & Spencer, Garnier and Dunelm.

After being the daytime darling, an insider reveals Holly is ambitious for more success.

An insider adds: "It’s no more than Holly deserves, the nation loves her. She’s not changed since day one, and unlike some people in showbiz, Holly’s got her feet firmly on the ground.

"But this is just the start, she’d love to branch out and have her own TV chat show or do front more serious documentary roles. Holly can do just about anything she puts her mind to."

Unlike some celebrities who use tax evasion schemes, Holly - who runs Roxy Media Ltd with her TV producer husband Dan Baldwin - has always paid her way.

She handed over £132,441 to the HMRC in corporation tax this year.

The TV favourite reportedly got a £200,000 pay rise to be in line with This Morning co-host Philip Schofield to take her earnings for the show to £600,000 a year.

The deal was struck during negotiations for Dancing On Ice, which Holly and Phil present together.

Bosses realised that if they were earning the same £200k fee for the celebrity skating competition, which is set to return to ITV next year, they should also earn the same on This Morning.

A source told the Daily Mirror: "It seemed ridiculous they were going to get paid the same fee for Dancing on Ice but Holly was lagging behind on This Morning. Quite rightly, that has now been rectified and they both earn exactly the same."
