'Strictly Come Dancing' Winner Jay McGuiness 'Set To Make £1m' After Triumph In Final

Strictly Come Dancing’ champion Jay McGuiness stands to make a whopping £1million after triumphing on the show.


The former Wanted singer was crowned winner of the BBC ballroom competition during Saturday (19 December) night’s grand finale, and has already been approached to star in the West End next year, as well as advertising male grooming products, according to reports.

He previously admitted he feared being unemployed after the series and the upcoming arena tour of the show ended.

Speaking to The Mirror last week, he said: "I’d had a year-and-a-half of just sort of having fun and I want to do something good but I still don’t know what that is. Basically, after the tour I’m seeking work."

After winning the show on Saturday, Jay admitted he couldn’t believe his luck, telling hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman: "I feel spaced-out, really weird. It's been one of the most special things I've ever done."
