The Chase star Mark Labbett is said to have raked in an eye-watering £1million in just two years after finding success on the ITV show.
The Sun claims that Labbett's firm Brainy Best Media Ltd filed accounts this week showing Mark handed over £150,816 to HMRC in Corporation Tax covering the past two years – meaning that he earned well over five times his tax burden in 2020 and 2021.
According to the publication, 2019, he paid himself a dividend of £158,000 from his company coffers.
That was up from £54,250 in 2018 and a bigger increase from 2017’s modest £22,750.
The ITV star also has side jobs as a bingo caller at bars and clubs, with punters paying £10 each to go to Che Bar in Barnsley to see the star call out the numbers.
After he found a bingo winner, people then got a chance to take him on for a Chase style quiz as he performed in his Beast alter-ego.
However, the star has still got a long way to go to catch up with The Chase's presenter Bradley Walsh.
The star is said to have amassed a fortune of over £10million in his firm Wingit Productions Ltd.
Bradley's company has got cash and assets worth £12.3m, which was up from £11.5m in 2019, according to The Sun.
The star rakes in plenty of money from presenting on a number of ITV shows, including his new venture with his son Barney.
Bradley said in 2021 that he was thinking about retiring after 40 years on screen, saying: "You know what, in a couple of years time I won’t have to do any of it, I’ll be retired and that’ll be it."
The Chase airs weekdays at 5pm on ITV.
