Although the presenter cleared up rumours she’s leaving the ITV programme earlier this month, experts predict she could rake in £1million if she left for the rival broadcaster.
‘Taking in TV appearances, book deals and social media posts Ranvir could look to make at least £500K over the next year,’ Natalie Rita, PR director and founder of NRPR, told Metro.co.uk.
‘It looks like 2021 could be a great year for Ranvir whose high scoring waltzes won over viewers on this year’s Strictly and could follow in the steps of previous contestants like Stacey Dooley, who was projected to make over £1m following her Strictly win.
‘Ranvir’s in demand and in the perfect position to take advantage of her popularity which in turn will allow her to command a higher fee. These opportunities could include, the Strictly tour (depending on the Covid restrictions), book deals, a new show, magazine columns, TV appearances, Instagram posts and more.’
Natalie added: ‘I think if she were to quit GMB and for example, move over to the BBC it would be likely that this figure could be at least £1m.
‘There’s also clothing collaborations too which could add an additional £30-50k too.’
Strictly winner Bill Bailey could also be set to rake in millions, although the pandemic will no doubt impact his earnings.
‘I can imagine Bill could earn over £2million in the next few years off the back of Strictly,’ Popular Culture Commentator Nick Ede told us.
‘In most normal years Bill would have seen huge earning potential with the Strictly tour and lots of spin-offs,’ Nick continued. ‘With Covid this may be less but he will be inundated with offers for adverts and commercial deals.
‘I think his biggest earning potential will be with his touring and even if we don’t start to have live performances until mid-2021, he will sell out for many years to come as he has retained his audience and built a brand new one too.’
Strictly Come Dancing is available to watch on catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
