Amanda Holden’s salary on BGT
Amanda Holden, along with her co-judge, Alesha Dixon, were involved in a pay row with ITV as they demanded a pay rise.
The pair were being paid a significant amount less than the main judge Simon Cowell, who earns the most. The issue started when it was revealed that the new judge, Bruno Tonioli was to receive the same salary as them. A source told The Sun
Amanda has been on BGT for 17 years, while Alesha is going into her eleventh year. They don’t think it’s fair a newcomer could walk into the show and be handed the same deal as them.
Amanda and Alesha won’t be signing their contracts until they’ve had their issues over pay addressed.
After learning that Bruno was to be getting the same pay, they decided to hold off and stand firm.
Before, it was believed that Amanda Holden was earning £700,000 for BGT. It is now believed that her salary has been raised to £850,000.
