Lorraine Kelly has had a successful career in the television industry as well as having her own business. Born in Glasgow in 1959, she attended Claremont High School before turning down a university place to study English and Russian to work for her local newspaper, East Kilbride news. She then joined BBC Scotland as a researcher in 1983 and it was only a year later when she started her television career as a on-screen reporter covering Scottish news.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lorraine Kelly is worth $6million or £4.6million.
She has boosted her business empire with her company Albatel profiting last year with £500,000 after tax.
The presenter and her husband Steve Smith set up the firm in 1992 shortly after they were married.
Her company is now worth £3.8million alone with their newly published annual reports showing that it had a total assets of £3,986,919 including £2.6million held in an account, more than £1million owed by debtors and an investment portfolio worth £250,000.
The value of her company has rocketed by more than £1million in the past three years.
As well as having a business on the side, Lorraine has also appeared on the TV series Good Morning Britain, Surprise Surprise!, Live Issue, Have I Got News For You, Loose Women and The One Show.
Kelly presented a four-part series for Channel 5 called Penguin A&E with Lorraine Kelly in 2016 and two years later co-presented with Rob Beckett on Wedding Day Winners.
The TV presenter was also honoured with a special award which recognised her 30 year career in the industry at Scotland’s Bafta awards.

Speaking on the news, Lorraine said: “It was a lovely and totally unexpected surprise to be told I was to receive such a prestigious award.
“I feel very blessed and would like to thank Bafta Scotland for such an incredible honour.”
As well as her lengthy career in the television industry, Lorraine has published books on dieting and fitness as well as making personal appearances.
Her books include Lorraine Kelly’s Nutrition Made Easy and Lorraine Kelly’s Baby and Toddler Eating Plan.
Selling her home in Dundee two years ago, the presenter now lives in Berkshire just outside of London with her husband who is a television cameraman.
The 59-year-old has a seven bedroom property along with a large conservatory, huge garden and a cabin for guests outside.
Gary Lineker, 59, is known by many for his successful football career. He has played for the likes of Leicester City, Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur. Others may know him from his advertising with Walkers crisp brand. He has now been revealed to be taking a pay cut from the BBC but how much is he earning and what is his net worth?
The recent chart from the BBC showing the best-paid presents shows Lineker as the highest-earning star with an unchanged salary of £1.75million last year.
Gary is also the second highest earning BBC employee overall.
He earns around £146k a month which equates to £33k a week and a staggering £6k a day.
Not to mention his brand deal with Walkers which earns him £1m a year on top of his BBC salary.
Gary also has his own production company which launched in May 2014 and makes sport programmes like Wayne Rooney: The Man Behind the Goals, Being Kevin Pietersen and Anthony Joshua: A Legend in the Making.
Gary also signed a five year contract with BBC Sport which will see him in the corporation until 2025.
On the new deal, Lineker said: “I love working with the BBC, and am very proud to continue to be a part of their outstanding football team. I’m looking forward to the next five years – with a European Championship and World Cup on the horizon, it’s exciting times for me and the team.”
Philip Bernie, BBC Head of TV Sport, added: “Gary is the outstanding football presenter of his time. The BBC is extremely pleased to have him leading our coverage so exceptionally for another five years.”
Gary will continue to present Match of the Day as well as fronting the BBC’s coverage of the FA Cup, major football games and BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
However he has recently agreed a £400,000 pay cut alongside the new contract which could see him earning less than Radio 2 presenter Zoe Ball who took a £1million pay rise in 2019.
This takes Gary’s BBC salary down to a still huge £1.35million, a 23 percent pay drop.
Fiona Bruce and Lauren Laverne have also moved into the top 10 of the BBC’s highest-paid stars, which features four women for the first time.
Lineker now lives in a grand mansion in Richmond where he has a cinema room and a large kitchen.
He has four sons with his ex-wife Michelle Cockayne who he married in 1986 and divorced in 2006.
The retired footballer then married Welsh actress and former model in 2009 with a marriage lasting nine years before the couple divorced in 2016.
The Queen’s wealth has been revealed (Image: Getty)
The Queen got a 55 percent rise in European Union farm subsidies at Sandringham last year as Prince Charles turned the Norfolk estate organic. Royal finance expert David McClure reveals the payments in his new book, The Queen’s True Worth, and estimates the monarch’s £400million fortune is £50million more than previously believed.
When monarchs grow old a blind eye is often turned to their finances.
Such was the case with the ageing Queen Victoria, who squirreled away £800,000 of public money under the noses of a succession of compliant Chancellors of the Exchequer.
So too, it was with Queen Elizabeth, below, whose extravagant expenditure in her nineties on racing and entertaining was indulged by palace courtiers with barely a murmur.
If today the public finds it hard to follow the finances of the monarch, it is because the royal finances are shrouded in fog.

The sovereign and her heir enjoy a multitude of privileges that prevent outsiders from penetrating their coffers.
Their wills and the value of their estates are not made public as is the case for ordinary Britons.
And their official papers at the National Archives in Kew are kept secret for 50 to 100 years in contrast to the normal release time of 20 to 30 years.
Similarly, unlike normal state institutions, their official communications with the Government of the day are immune from Freedom of Information requests.
So the royal finances are labyrinthine and difficult to penetrate for an outsider.

But much of the Queen’s private fortune – which I estimate at £400million, £50million more than a number of recent estimates because of the extra cachet attached to the royal name – comes from the properties she owns.
Some crude valuations of Her Majesty’s assets include Buckingham Palace – along with other official residences like Windsor Castle and Holyroodhouse Palace, as well as the Royal Collection – and consequently suggest astronomical figures.
In 1989, Fortune by adding the Crown Jewels to the list calculated her wealth at £7billion.
In 2001, The Sunday Times Royal Rich List Report came to a figure of £1.15billion by incorporating all the capital from the Duchy of Lancaster (a landed estate that has produced a private income for the monarch since 1399) together with a generous assessment of what constitutes her private art collection.

Yet the Queen does not own Buckingham Palace, nor those other residences.
And in recent years, valuations have become more sophisticated as the distinction between the private and public palaces has been factored into the calculus.
Unlike the Royal Collection and the public residences, the Sandringham estate is privately owned.
The Queen inherited the Norfolk property from her father King George VI in 1952 after it had been passed down through her family when Queen Victoria purchased it for the future King Edward VII with her own family funds.
Historically the 20,000-acre estate has haemorrhaged money – almost from the day it was first acquired for the Prince of Wales in October 1862.
The Queen has helped turn it around financially by taking advantage of EU subsidies on the land she farms and by improving her income from tenant farmers.
What had reduced profitability was fragmentation: there were simply too many small farms with too many workers producing too few profits.
But in the Queen’s reign under Prince Philip’s supervision, mega-farms were created by amalgamating the smaller units and, as a result, the number of tenant farms fell from 30 to around 12 and the workforce shrunk to a tenth of its pre-war size.
Today, the land is rented to just half a dozen tenant farms.

Prince Philip deserves some credit for overseeing this turnaround since the early Seventies, but the move into profitability coincided with a welcome handout from Brussels.
After the United Kingdom entered the EEC in 1973, Sandringham as one of the largest farms in Norfolk, became eligible for a large slice of the Common Agricultural Policy’s farming subsidy budget.
As one of 40 growers in the UK producing blackcurrants for Ribena, for instance, Sandringham received £553,051 in 2015, £524,466 in 2016, £695,001 in 2017, £604,844 in 2018 and a massive £935,908 (boosted by £313,510 in rural development aid) in 2019 as Prince Charles helped transform the estate’s output to organic.
The true test of how important European Union support has been to the viability of Sandringham will come when the CAP money tap is turned off and the estate will have to make do with replacement payments for “public goods”, such as access to the countryside, planting meadows and restoring woodland.

Previous estimates have put the value of Sandringham at between £30million and £45million but, significantly, do not take into full account the extra value attached to the royal name.
If that is factored in, then – as we have seen from inflated prices paid at auction for other royal property – Sandringham might easily be worth £60million to £80million on the open market.
Similarly Balmoral, the Queen’s Scottish home, purchased in 1852 by Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert for £31,500 (£2.5million at today’s prices) is classed as a private royal estate.
With its 50,000 acres of Scots pine forests and heather-strewn hills in the shadow of the 3,786-feet Lochnagar mountain, its main attraction lies in outdoor activities.

An estimated half of the £3million running costs is clawed back through the estate’s many commercial ventures, many of them outdoor pursuits.
Probably the most profitable venture is salmon fishing.
Balmoral is blessed with some of the best fishing in Scotland and the paying public are now being reeled in too.
In November 2106, its salmon fishing rights began to be registered with the Scottish land registry office under the company name of Canup Ltd, a commercial trust whose company secretary is listed at Companies House as Richard Gledson, the factor of Balmoral estate.
Other directors include the Earl of Airlie, former Lord Chamberlain, the Earl of Dalhousie, Lord Steward of the Queen’s Household, Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, and his predecessor Sir Alan Reid.

The registry confirmed that the previous title holders were the Trustees of HM Queen Eliabeth II.
Traditionally trusts have been used by the Royal Family as a conduit to transfer their property from one generation to the next.
Sometimes it may be for reasons of taxation and sometimes for considerations of privacy.
With sporting rights and the royal name, Balmoral could easily be worth £40million to £50million.
Government ministers down the decades have left the Queen’s private residences alone but her official residences, funded by the taxpayer, have often been at the centre of tensions.

It has been estimated that in normal times the Queen spends one third of her working year at Buckingham Palace and it is common knowledge that Windsor, not “BP” as it is known, is her favourite home.
When she acceded to the throne in 1952 there was some reluctance to relocate to Buckingham Palace.
Prince Philip wanted his growing family to stay at Clarence House.
In fact, the palace has never been popular with monarchs.
As one former royal observed: “It is like living over a traffic island.”

In 1971, the Queen issued a thinly veiled threat to move out of the palace in response to a plan by Labour, then in opposition, to turn the Royal Household into a government department run by civil servants.
She herself faced the possibility of being forced out of her official residences by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in March 1952.
In what must rank as one of the most indiscreet memos ever issued by a Cabinet minister about the royal finances, Chancellor Rab Butler expressed his frustration about the “old-fashioned” arrangements regarding the palace.
“It seems incredible that a young Queen should need to be saddled with all these massive buildings, their idle staffs and their upkeep,” he wrote, arguing that Buckingham Palace could be used for great gala state functions rather than perpetually maintained as a home.
But his plan for Windsor Castle was even more radical as the Government sought economies before agreeing a new Civil List for the young Queen.
“Might it not be suggested that Windsor Castle should be put on a national basis with all its treasures leaving a suitable sector for private upkeep and inhabitation?”
Civil servants at the Treasury and the Ministry of Works looked into the possibility of the Queen leaving Windsor Castle for nearby Royal Lodge and turning the castle into a museum.
In a March 6, 1952 letter to the Treasury, the then Keeper of the Privy Purse, Ulrick Alexander, mentioned his concern about “some major retrenchment such as the closing down of Windsor Castle”.

The Ministry of Works drafted a lengthy brief for the minister David Eccles on May 26 outlining possible economies in running the royal palaces.
It read: “It has been suggested that Windsor Castle might cease to be a royal residence. To say exactly what the financial consequences of this would be would need careful study…”
The Royal Household was informed of the plan – one can only speculate at its astonishment – and must have been concerned but it is not clear if it expressed any misgivings privately about it.
In the end, however, the radical suggestion was not acted upon.
After civil servants did the sums, the actual savings to the public purse did not merit such a dramatic solution as moving the monarch out.

Mr Butler must have accepted his mandarins’ advice as he later announced to the House of Commons that no royal relocation was needed after all.
Today, with the rise in property prices, the private estates of Balmoral and Sandringham must now be worth over £100million.
The Queen’s collection of British and Commonwealth stamps – the best of its kind in the world – would boost the inventory by another £100million and using the same ballpark figure the combined value of her jewellery and art collections could well be pushing £100million.
The precise value of her private investments remains a mystery (and may have been hit by the post-Covid market crash) but is still likely to be worth tens of millions of pounds.
The same could be said of all the private gifts she has received over the last 70 years and there is also her collection of antique cars thought to be worth £10million or more.
If you include the trust funds and make allowances for the effect of the royal name, her total wealth could well be in the region of £400million.
This may not put her in the super rich category but it certainly makes her wealthier than the Palace would like us to believe.

Diana Rigg has died aged 82 after many years in the television industry. The actress was born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, in 1938. Her career kickstarted in 1965 when she appeared on the television series The Avengers. Diana starred as Emma Peel for four years before joining the ITV series Diana in 1973. How did she make her fortune?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Diana Rigg was worth £7.5million.
Perhaps best known by younger generations for her role in Game of Thrones, Diana starred on the series for five seasons.
The actress added to her fortune by having recurring roles in many TV shows.
These included Bleak House, Mother Love, The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries, and You, Me and the Apocalypse.

She also earned the best award for her character in the BBC miniseries Mother Love in the BAFTA TV award ceremony in 1989.
Diana had an extensive career in the theatre industry including playing a title role in Medea, both in London and New York.
She won a Tony Award for best actress in a play in 1994 for her role in the show.
The actress was made a CBE in 1998 and a Dame in 1995 for services to drama.
Additionally, Diana earned huge amounts of money from endorsement deals, sponsorship deals and advertisements.
In her personal life, Diana was married twice, once in 1973 and again in 1982.
She married Menachen Gueffen after dating for just one year and their love affair was very popular amongst her fans and followers.
The couple divorced just three years later in 1976.
Diana then started dating Archibald Stirling who is a theatrical producer and former officer in the Scots Guards.
The couple went on to have one daughter, Rachael Stirling who followed in her mother’s footsteps and became an actress.
She has appeared in television shows like The Bletchley Circle, Detectorists and Wild Bill
Diana tied the knot with Archibald Stirling in 1982 and the wedding ceremony was held privately where there were only a couple of friends and family members present.
Diana and Archibald went on to have an eight year marriage before divorcing in 1990 and Diana kept her relationship status private ever since.
Mary Berry, 85, was born on March 24, 1935 in Bath. She has had a lengthy career in the food industry but her career first started when her cooking skills were noticed by her domestic science teacher at high school. Aged just 22, Mary started to work at the Dutch Dairy Bureau, while also enrolling for evening courses to further her education.
The company now stock its condiments in stores like Tesco, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason across multiple countries.
Perhaps best known for role as a judge and host on The Great British Bake Off, Mary co-hosted alongside Paul Hollywood for 6 years.
It is reported that she earned around £200,000 per year for this job. In addition, she also judges the variations of the show including The Junior Bake Off, Comic Relief Bake Off and Sports Relief Bake Off.
Mary left The Great British Bake Off in 2016 after the show relocated to Channel 4.
Since then, Berry has gone on to star in many solo programmes including Mary Berry Cooks, Mary Berry Everyday and Mary Berry’s Absolute Favourites where she cooks up family favourites from her own kitchen.
In her personal life, Mary married Paul John March Hunnings in 1966 who sold antique books.
The author lives with her husband Paul Hunnings, in their grade-listed property in Henley.
The property comes with a tennis court, conservatory, indoor pool, gym and double garage and is thought to have cost £2.6million.
From one British icon to another, Paul Hollywood is a chef and television presenter known for being a judge alongside Mary on The Great British Bake Off.
According to Spears Magazine, his net worth is a whopping £9million.
He began his cooking career at his father’s bakery when he was just a teenager and then went on to become head baker at a number of hotels around the country.
He then landed a role alongside Mary on The Great British Bake Off but also has a number of other incomes which no doubt has added to his staggering fortune.
Alongside the baking show, Paul also has been a guest speaker at food festivals such as the Cumbrian Food Festival, the BBC Good Food Show and The Cake and Bake show.
He added £1million to his net worth in just one year in 2014 thanks to his BBC contract, book deals, live tours and sales of his own merchandise.
The public school hadtold them their five-year-old daughter could attend in-person classes two days a week and spend three days at home learning online, or she could just stay home the whole week and take remote classes. Had they chosen the school’s hybrid plan, their daycare offered — for $775 a month — to take their daughter for the three days she would have been out of school. Another option was aprivate school in the area that offered her a kindergarten class five days a week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for $839 a month.
The couple, who both work full-time, chose the private school because it would offer their daughter the most consistency and would minimize daily scheduling headaches.
“We aren’t rich and could’ve used the money to help pay down debt,” Shire said.
Even if public schools open full-time at some point during the school year, Shire said she plans to keep her daughter at the private school for kindergarten. “We wanted to make sure she had a really good experience … So we’ll eat the money and figure it out next year.”
Across the country, many public schools are going remote for some for all of the school week because of social distancing protocols. With little reliable guidance from government and school officials, parents have been left to choose from a hodgepodge of makeshift, pricey educational options for their kids.
Creating a first-grade classroom at home
In New York City, Anthony Andino and his wife have a 6-year-old daughter entering first grade at a public school. They, too, were given the choice to keep her home full-time or let her attend class in person a few days a week. They chose to keep her home.
Andino, who recently lost his job in hospitality due to the pandemic, will be there to help her with her online learning while his wife works full-time at a local small business.
Even though he plans to oversee the learning at home himself, Andino said he has invested $1,300 in new equipment and supplies to replicate what his daughter would have in a first grade classroom. He got her a new desk and a semester’s worth of markers, crayons, scissors and other materials, as well as an iPad for her remote lessons. Andino saidthe iPad seemed like a good idea given how young kids need to movea lot.“She’s six and tends to walk around and drop things from time to time.”
Had it been a normal school year, Andino estimates he might have spent less than a third of the $1,300 for her school supplies.
Online classes at a daycare
Anna Brewer’s 8-year-old son started third grade in Chico, California, a few weeks ago, but his public school isn’t holding any in-person classes. Since she and her husband don’t work from home and don’t have family nearby to babysit, their son is taking his remote classes from a daycare center at a local church where he’s grouped with roughly 10 kids from different grades and schools.
Brewer said she chose that daycare because, at $520 a month, it was cheaper than a similar option offered by the city’s parks and recreation department at $775. Ironically, that option would have placed him in the gym of the same school building where his in-person classes are not allowed.
“If I wasn’t laughing, I’d be crying, ” Brewer said.
The church daycare lets her drop her son off early enough so she can get to work on time and lets him stay till 5 p.m. He starts his day with three hours of Zoom classes, then is expected to do his school assignments on his own, she said. At home in the evenings, Brewer and her husband work with him on the schoolwork he couldn’t finish during the day.
Brewer says her monthly bill is about $335 more than what she spent for after school care before the pandemic. It’s money, she said, that otherwise would have gone toward college and retirement savings or to pay down their mortgage.
A pandemic pod in a garage
Rajeshree Shah and her husband, who live in Orange County, California, are lucky enough to have jobs that let them work from home. But as Shah discovered this spring, that still didn’t offer her enough opportunity to adequately oversee her two daughters’ online learning from home. One is in fourth grade, the other in second grade. Both attend public school.
“I couldn’t give the kids the attention they needed. My oldest would ask for help with her homework. I’d say I’m on a call and I’ll be with you in 10 minutes. Then it was two hours later,” she said. “And my youngest wouldn’t do her homework if I wasn’t there to help her.”
So Shah and her husband decided that, at least until December, rather than let their daughters attend public school classes in person, they’d pay a tutor to run a “pandemic pod” out of their garage for their daughters and the children of theirfriends.
They painted their garage in purple and yellow — they’re big Lakers fans — bought new desks and created a sign that says “Shah Elementary” because they wanted to create a fun environment for the kids during such a difficult time.
Outfitting their garage cost close to $900. The Shahs pay $2,000 of the tutor’s roughly $3,000 monthly income both for their daughters’ participation in the pod and for some private hours that their kids work withher.
While $2,000 is a lot, it’s only $200 a month more than the couple used to spend before the pandemic, between the cost of after-school care and a babysitter who also helped the couple with housework, Shah said. The extra money they’re paying would have been put toward savings, Shah said.
For the lucky few, employer subsidies help offset costs
Some parents are lucky enough to have employers who are willing to subsidize the high cost of remote learning.
Accenture decided to offer such a subsidy for one simple reason, said Ellyn Shook, the firm’s chief leadership and human resources officer. “Our parents of school age children did not feel they had the support they needed to balance [both] their responsibilities as a parent and at their work.”
Through a new employer benefits program created by childcare provider Bright Horizons in partnership with educational centers across the country, Accenture is paying the lion’s share of the costs for employees who enroll their school age kids in learning support programs at places like Code Ninjas, Mathnasium and Sylvan Learning Centers. Parents’ per-child, out of-pocket costs is just $5 an hour. There are typically proctors there to support kids with their online classes, but they’re not teaching the curriculum.
Other employers also offer subsidized learning benefits at places like Bright Horizons or Varsity Tutors. Varsity Tutors, for example, now offers 25% to 50% discounts on tutoring and pod learning for employees of roughly 50 organizations, said chief academic officer Brian Galvin.
Tutors normallycost $60 an hour, Gavin said, but subsidized parents may pay $30 to $45 an hour for one-on-one sessions and much less if their child is in a tutor-led pod of five kids at the same grade level.
Maisie Smith, 19, first joined EastEnders more than 12 years ago. The soap star hit TV screens when she was just six years old in 2008, before taking a break in 2014 and returning four years later. How much money has she made from the popular BBC one show?
According to Net Worthspedia, Maisie’s net worth is between £760,000 and £3million.
This has mainly come from her role on EastEnders but she also appeared in feature film The Other Boleyn Girl in 2008.
While the BBC have never shared what they pay individual cast members, some of their biggest stars are thought to earn up to a whopping £250,000 a year.
She has also gained a huge following on social media with more than 1.7 million TikTok followers and 689,000 followers on Instagram.

It was previously revealed that Adam Woodyatt, who plays EastEnders’ Ian Beale, and Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter, are the highest earning EastEnders stars, each taking home a huge salary.
According to website Celebrity Net Worth, Danny Dyer’s net worth is around £4million.
His salary is between £200,000-£249,999.
The actor is a popular fixture on Eastenders, and has appeared in a number of programmes and films.
He is best known for appearing on reality television series Made in Chelsea since 2011.
However as heir to the fortune of McVitie’s, the actor has never had to worry about money.
This didn’t stop Jamie creating his own name and set up a sweet and clothing brand Candy Kittens in King’s Road, Chelsea.
The gourmet brand of gummy sweets is now sold in the likes of Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.
Jamie Laing’s brand of sweets was also one of the first on the market to be completely vegan.
Holly Willoughby is an English television presenter who has an extensive career in the television industry as well as modelling and being an author. Her career started more than 20 years ago and since then she has become well known for fronting ITV shows including Dancing on Ice, This Morning, I’m A Celebrity and Celebrity Juice. How much does she earn?
Taking on the role in 2009, it was reported that her salary was once £400,000.
However, in 2017, she enjoyed a whopping £200,000 pay rise to match Phillip’s £600,000.
The pair are well known for their close friendship and giggling outbursts on the show.
Speaking on the pay rise, a source told the 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.”
Two years ago Holly also stepped in to be the presenter of the 2018’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
This proved to be very popular amongst fans of the shows and it earned Holly £500,000 for just three weeks in the jungle, around £23,000 a day.
The mum-of-three has even written a series of UK bestselling children’s books with her sister Kelly, which is sure to have added to her fortune.
She also had commercial deals with Diet Coke, Oral B and BHS.
Other brand deals include Garnier and Marks & Spencer.
Although it is not known how much she has been paid for any of these jobs, the star is likely to have topped up her earnings nicely from these roles.
Her company Peaches Productions Ltd. is also said to be worth around £1.5million which adds to Holly’s and husband Dan’s wealth.
