It really does pay to be the GC

Since TOWIE began in 2010 the show has managed to produce a lot of millionaires. A number of the OG cast members have left TOWIE and gone onto star in new shows, invest in property and start new businesses, giving some of them massive net worths.

Over the years TOWIE has had more than 50 cast members appear on screen and least 10 of these are millionaires. Tommy Mallet, Gemma Collins and Amy Childs are just a few who have used the platform of TOWIE to majorly increase their bank balance. But of all the cast members old and new, who has the biggest net worth?

These are the top 10 richest TOWIE cast members:
