Richard Madeley has had a long and successful career in the media, appearing on a slew of different TV programmes. His next venture will see him compete against fellow celebrities as he takes part in this year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!. The popular show returns tonight at 9pm on ITV.

Richard will be one of the contestants battling it out in Gwrych Castle and its surrounding grounds near Abergele, north Wales.

The show will be added to the star’s varied repertoire.

But how much money has Richard made over the years thanks to his TV appearances?

The Good Morning Britain (GMB) host has a huge net worth of $5million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

This is currently equivalent to around £3.6million.

It’s a huge fortune that Richard’s writing career has also contributed to.

The Briton is a columnist and a novelist, having written multiple fiction books, as well as an autobiography.

Richard’s exact salary is not known, but the presenter has signed an estimated £200,000 deal with ITV to appear on I’m a Celebrity.

This will be added to his £300,000 contract with the channel for working on GMB, which he also signed this year as he replaced Piers Morgan as one of the show’s main presenters.

Richard has been discussing his much-awaited-for appearance on I’m a Celebrity for a while as he told GMB viewers a few weeks ago that he has been learning Welsh in preparation.

The show’s team and contestants will return to Gwrych Castle in north Wales again this year.

The castle is in an area of the country known for its Welsh-speaking community, not far from Snowdonia National Park.

But how did Richard get to where he is today?

The Englishman hails from Romford, Essex, and started his career working for local newspapers before becoming a news producer and presenter for BBC Radio Carlisle.

From there, he went on to be a reporter on the Lookaround local news for Border Television, before fronting its equivalent Calendar with Richard Whiteley on Yorkshire TV.

He then worked for Granada Report in the early 1980s where he met Judy Finnigan, who was assigned to assist him on his first day.

This was the woman who would later become his second wife.

The pair wed in 1986 and have two children, Chloe and Jack.

Richard and Judy presented This Morning from its inception in October 1988 until July 2001.

The couple quit This Morning in 2001 having been approached by Channel 4 to host a similar show called Richard & Judy.

The programme was shown for an hour in the early evenings.

During its time on air, the TV show launched two successful “clubs”, the Richard & Judy Book Club and the Richard & Judy Wine Club, both of which are similar in style to those used by Oprah Winfrey.

The show ended in August 2008 and Richard went on to present The Wright Stuff from 2012 until 2017.

In 2017 he then took up the guest presenting role at Good Morning Britain.

But since Piers Morgan left earlier this year, he has been seen hosting with Susanna Reid far more frequently than previous years.
