Strictly Come Dancing prize money: What does the winner get?

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 - TX13 LIVE SHOW

We all know the Strictly Come Dancing winner lifts the glitterball trophy - but is there any prize money?

This weekend saw the latest Strictly Come Dancing final results as 2019's champion was crowned.


Three celebs went into this Saturday's show with Emma Barton, Karim Zeroual and Kelvin Fletcher fighting for the glitterball trophy.

But there's reportedly an extra prize for the winner.

It's understood that the celebs are paid more the further they get in the competition with the champion taking home £100,000.

That's a £25,000 bonus compared to the £75,000 the other finalists apparently get.

According to The Sun newspaper, each celebrity is given a standard £25,000 fee for first signing up which rises to £40,000 at the end of October.


Those who make the Quarter Finals supposedly enjoy £60,000 which climbs to the £75,000 if they last an extra week and get into the semi-finals.

Celebs can also make extra cash by signing up to the Strictly Come Dancing live tour, which takes place in the Spring the year after the series finishes.

Those taking part in 2020's tour include social media sensation Saffron Barker and AJ Pritchard, EastEnders actress Emma Barton and Graziano Di Prima, BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell and Katya Jones and actor Kelvin Fletcher and Janette Manrara.

They're joined by Sky Sports presenter Alex Scott and Neil Jones, actress Catherine Tyldesley and Johannes Radebe, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden.

As for the Strictly pros, they're rumoured to all be paid around £50,000 each series and can double that figure by appearing on the live tour.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.


Following the end of the series, the Christmas special will air on Xmas Day on BBC One at 4:40PM.

You can watch episodes and catch up online via BBC iPlayer.
