Amy Childs is the biggest earner with an estimated £5million in the bank
She left the show back in 2011 and kicked off her post-Towie career straight away by starring on Celebrity Big Brother, finishing in fourth place.
The 26-year-old, who gave birth to her first child with boyfriend Bradley Wright at the end of April, later starred in her own fly on the wall series It’s All About Amy and also took part on Channel 4 show The Jump in 2014.
The Sun revealed in April that Amy will make £1million in her first year of motherhood with a pram range, fitness plan and baby clothing line.
Her main source of income in her beauty salon in Brentwood, Essex, her AC clothing line and a fitness DVD.
Amy also topped up her bank balance from perfumes, personal appearances and big money magazine deals.
Mark Wright has earned a whopping £4million
Mark was one of the original Towie stars but he only started earning the big bucks after leaving the show.
The 30-year-old – who is married to Michelle Keegan– has forged a lucrative TV career for himself starring on big money earners like I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and Strictly Come Dancing.
He now co-presents Take Me Out: The Gossip alongside Laura Jackson and also hosts Club Classics on Heart Radio every Friday and Saturday night.
Mark has also topped up his earnings thanks to promotional deals with Littlewoods, Umbro and Oykos yogurt over the years and now owns a 20 per cent stake in local club Billericay Town FC.
He has been smart with his money, making plenty of property investments in Essex via his companies Chigwell Properties and The Wright Look Models company.
Joey Essex has raked in £4.5million
Perhaps a surprise contender in the Towie rich-list, Joey Essex has been smart with his cash since leaving the show in November 2013.
The 26-year-old has been busy starring on lots of other reality TV shows like I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Celebs Go Dating, Splash! and The Jump.
He also launched a men’s hair line called Joey Essex D’Reem Hair as well as two fragrances and appeared in lots of commercials.
Sam Faiers has earned a hefty £4million
Joey’s ex-fiance Sam has earned a similar amount since rising to reality TV fame.
The mum-of-one, who has a son Paul with boyfriend Paul Knightley, has cashed in on the beauty, fashion and baby markets over the past few years.
She has launched a clothing line with Very, a boutique with her sister Billie, an eyelash range, a fragrance and has penned three books.
The 26-year-old is now focusing on the “mummy market” with her new show Sam Faiers: The Baby Diaries and has signed to an agent in LA in the hopes of making it in the States.
How much do the Towie newbies get paid?
While the original stars have made serious bank thanks to the ITVBe show, the latest arrivals are trying to hone their own individual brands thanks to exposure from the show.
The Mirror reported last year that the cast members earn around £100 per day for filming but as seen above, they can seriously top up their earnings with ads, endorsements and spin-off shows.
Back in 2012, it was reported that Mark Wright and his co-stars were on a measly £50 a day and threatened to quit unless the fee was doubled.
Speaking about the rates in 2011, Mark said: “They argued that without the show, we wouldn’t be where we are. Our argument was that we helped make the show what it was.
“We both had a point but we just wanted some acknowledgement for what we were doing.
“Now, we are getting paid, yes. I’m not expecting to become a millionaire off of my wages but it leads to other things. PAs, my fragrance… It’s not all about my wages from the show.”
