The X Factor runner-up has a string of hits.
Back in 2005, Fleur East found fame on The X Factor as part of the Addictiv Ladies girl group. Although the band failed to win over the voting public, East made a sensational return to the competition almost a decade later as a solo artist, finishing in second place. The “Sax” hitmaker has since gone on to release two solo albums, appear in multiple reality TV shows, land a radio presenting gig, and more. In 2022, East joined the cast of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, reaching the grand finale alongside dance partner Vito Coppola — marking yet another successful, and reportedly lucrative career venture. But, what is Fleur East’s net worth?
As mentioned, East finished in second place on the 2014 series of ITV’s The X Factor. As per The Sun, she went on to enjoy post-X Factor success with her 2015 debut album “Love, Sax and Flashbacks,” the lead single of which, “Sax,” reached the Top 3 on the UK Singles Charts.
East has since gone on to release a string of other tracks, including “Favourite Thing,” “Size,” and “Lucky.” In March 2020, she dropped her second studio album, Fearless.
In 2018, East appeared on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and went on to reach the final four. During her time on the show, the Express estimated that she was paid “between £50,000 and £70,000” for her jungle stint. Four years later, East was announced as one of the 2022 Strictly Come Dancing contestants. As per Metro, she was paid an estimated £75,000 for her ballroom appearance.
In July 2019, East made her debut as a Hits Radio breakfast show presenter alongside co-hosts Greg Burns and James Barr.
Celebrity Net Worth estimates that East is worth roughly $6 million (£5.2 million) — more than her Strictly Come Dancing head judge, Shirley Ballas, who is reportedly worth around £3.7 million.
