Telly legend Phillip Schofield’s enjoyed yet another bumper year despite the Pandemic.
The star’s TV firm Fistral Productions Ltd equity now stands at £2,464,251, which includes £1,686,171 cash in the bank.
This is a huge jump of nearly £990k ready cash on the previous year – making him the highest earner on This Morning.
Phillip is thought to be on at least £600,000 a year for presenting This Morning.
Co-presenter Holly Willoughby’s firm, Roxy Media, was also still making coining in it throughout Covid.
The company, which looks after her TV and advertising interests, made approximately £1.37 million upto Feb 2021. It’s now sitting on reserves of £1,535,318.
And former This Morning host Ruth Langsford hasn’t done too badly either, as tax records for her personal limited company Hey Ho Ltd suggest that last year she earned £2,092,863.
A source said: “Ruth has had the last laugh here. She’s proven the talk wrong that she and Eamonn were pale and stale. Her pay from ITV might not be as high as Holly and Phil’s but her earning power outside of the show is vast.
“She has her gig on shopping channel QVC which is huge, plus her work on Loose Women.
“Now she is free to make even more shows for other channels. Plus she is always asked to sign up for commercial work and has appeared in adverts for everything from blood circulation boosters to bingo games.”
