This is how rich the current cast of Made in Chelsea actually are
Just give me a fraction, please
Back in the day, Made in Chelsea used to be all about some of the most affluent people in London, parading about and being all rich. But since then a lot has changed – the old cast members are long gone and some of the newbies aren’t quite as well off as the literal aristocrats and heirs who used to be on the show. Some of the current cast as still obviously rolling in it, for example people like Olivia Bentley, Jamie Laing and Sophie Hermann literally ooze money. But what are all the net worths of the other Made in Chelsea stars?
The cast members reportedly make around £8,000 per season of the show, so they can’t be badly off. Some of the cast members have lots of family money, others have their own businesses and huge Instagram followings which can give them serious return on sponsored deals with brands.
Here are the net worths, that are known, of all of the current Made in Chelsea cast members.
Sam Thompson – £850,000 – £1million
Sam Thompson’s net worth was last fully calculated in 2018, at £850,000. Since then, he’s done numerous brand deals and appeared on lots of TV shows, so his net worth is probably closer to £1million now.
Zara McDermott – £100,000
Zara McDermott first became famous after appearing on Love Island. Since then, she’s got up to 1.4million Instagram followers and has said she charges up to £3,000 for a brand to be featured on her page. She’s also signed up to Storm Models, all of which has helped her to build up a healthy net worth.
Jamie Laing – £2million
Up until recently, it was believed that Jamie Laing was heir to a huge family fortune, £485million in case you’re wondering, as his grandad created McVitie’s biscuits and literally invented the digestive. However, recently Jamie has said he isn’t even heir to this, as his father Nicholas Laing is said to have sold his share in McVitie’s in the mid 90s. Jamie says he hasn’t seen a penny of the cash and doesn’t even know where it is, he doesn’t even get free biscuits!!
He said instead, his impressive net worth of £2million is purely off his own back, and through his own hard work. He’s been in countless TV shows, is currently starring in Strictly Come Dancing and has a vegetarian sweet business called Candy Kittens.
Sophie ‘Habbs’ Habboo – £3million
If you follow Habbs on Instagram, you’ll realise she is a big one for sponsored posts. As well as this, she’s said to be from a very rich family. Her father is a director of two London companies and her mum is the director of property management company.
She’s also just launched her own jewellery collection and has an eco swimwear brand with her sister Georgia, called Gi Swim.
Sophie Hermann – £3.5 million
If it wasn’t already very clear from the vibe she gives off, Sophie Hermann is mega rich. She’s been in the show for six seasons and is a fashion designer in her own right. However, a lot of her money is old money. Heir to Mustang jeans, Sophie Hermann is the granddaughter of founder Luise Hermann. She’s also stepdaughter of famous German actress Uschi Glas. Fancy.
Ollie Locke – £7million
Ollie Locke is officially one of the richest names in UK reality TV – placing fifth in the 2020 reality TV rich list. He has a lot of property assests, including the £1.6million London home he is currently living in, which has helped give him the highest of all the net worths of the current Made in Chelsea cast.
Ollie appeared in 2014’s Celebrity Big Brother for a rumoured £100k, and then was paid £200k to go on Celebs Go Dating in 2018. As well as this, Ollie set up gay dating app, Chappy, in 2017 and sold that later in the same year for £1m. He can also charge up to £2,000 for an Instagram post and earned an estimated six figures for his bestselling autobiography, Laid In Chelsea.
Olivia Bentley – £600,000
Olivia Bentley is another heir-in-question. Some reports say she’s heir to the actual Bentley motors, and is the great-great-great granddaughter of the founder of WO Bentley. She’s claimed that she is, the tabloids said she was lying, and others are convinced the members of the Bentley family she says she is related to didn’t even have children. Who knows. Either way, money is said to be in her family and she’s worth A LOT.
Tiff Watson – £500,000
Tiff Watson has a lot of money in her family, as the Watson sisters are heirs to their father’s pub business. Their dad Clive owns The Phene pub in Chelsea, and he has founded various other restaurant chains including Tup Inns, City Pub Company and the Capital Pub Company. He sold part of his pub empire to Greene King for an estimated £70million. The Watson money stands at around a £90million fortune – all waiting for the girls.
Tiff is also the founder of Three Six Five, a vegan accessories brand.
Emily Blackwell – in the tens of thousands
Emily’s exact net worth is not known, but it is estimated to be within the thousands. Emily is a model and is also the director of her own lingerie company, UYC London.
James Taylor – over £100,000
James is thought to have made a lot of money since he became a regular Made in Chelsea face. He makes a lot on Instagram and also models.
Tristan Phipps – hundreds of thousands
The net worth of Tristan Phipps isn’t exactly known, but it’s fair to say that at the moment he is making some serious bank. He’s been on the show for a while now, so has managed to make a decent amount of money from that, and has built up a substantial Instagram following. He can earn a good couple of hundred pounds per post he does for a brand.
Alex Mytton – £600,000
As well as being on Made in Chelsea, Alex is a DJ and producer and works with gin company Piston Distillery.
Mark-Francis Vandelli – £2million
We all know that Mark-Francis is possibly one of the poshest people to ever grace this planet, but how much money does he actually have in the bank? Well, Mark-Francis Vandelli Orlov-Romanovsky is heir to actual Russian royalty. His parents are Russian princess, Diane Boulting-Casserley Vandelli (millionaire socialite and Yves Saint-Laurent model in the ’70s and ’80s) and former Italian industrialist, Marzio Vandelli. He inherited some of his mother’s huge fortune and owns a French antiques business in Paris.
Fredrik Ferrier – hundreds of thousands
Fredrik’s net worth is another which is a bit of an enigma, a lot like he is. He’s the director and founder of GEIST, an international private art dealership and collection, plus he’s a model and musician.
Charlie Fredrick – £1.5million
I’m not really sure how, but apparently Charlie Frederick has a net worth of around £1.5 million. The now Made in Chelsea star first became famous on 2018’s Love Island, and is now a model and personal trainer.
We get it now, the net worths of all the Made in Chelsea cast confirm they’re all rich rich.
