Strictly Come Dancing 2018 is landing back on TV screens this Saturday, with the full list of star-studded contestants now announced.
One celebrity that is appearing on the show is BBC journalist and TV personality Kate Silverton.
Kate is one of the most recognisable faces on UK television, having presented BBC One’s News at One, News at Six, News at Ten and BBC Weekend news.
With a successful and lucrative career spanning 26 years, how much is Kate Silverton worth?
Kate Silverton began her career at the BBC, working on Look North news before becoming a reporter and presenter at Tyne Tees Television.
Going from strength-to-strength, Kate then laded the role of a panellist on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, going on to appear on other shows such as The Heaven and Earth Show, Big Strong Boys.
With a strong start in television, Kate turned her attention to radio, featuring on Weekend Breakfast on BBC Radio 5 Live before joining BBC news.
From 2005 to 2007 the journalist presented on BBC News 24, going on to be named the presenter of BBC News (8 p.m summery) – a 90 seconds summary of the news that was shown on BBC One.
Since then Kate had had a long and successful career working in the BBC, on shows such as BBC News at One, Big Cat Diary and presenting the New Year Live coverage in 2008.
It is no wonder that with her long and loyal career to the BBC, Kate is reported to be on a salary of anywhere from £250,000 to £500,000.
The figures were published on the BBC accounts, with 274 BBC stars on six-figure salaries.
With so many years at the BBC on her CV, Kate has no doubt racked up an impressive net worth for herself.
The Strictly star revealed to The Telegraph in 2013 that she cleared the mortgage on her first flat “in three years”.
Kate now owns a portfolio of properties, including her first one bedroom flat in London and which she rents out.
Kate is married to Mike Heron, a former Royal Marine, and the couple has two children.
Another celebrity who has joined the cast of Strictly Come Dancing 2018 is Eastenders and Casualty actor, Charles Venn.
The London-born actor, formerly known by the stage names Chucky Venice and Chucky Venn, rose to fame playing Ray Dixon in Eastenders and Jacob Masters in Casualty.
He is also known for his roles as Curtis Alexander in Sky One’s Dream Team and Tremaine Gidigbi in Footballers’ Wives.
Adding dancing to his CV, Charles will make his Strictly debut in the show tonight. With a career spanning 17 years, he has racked up an impressive net worth.
According to NewWorthPost.org, Charles has a net worth of around $11 million (£8.5 million).
