Last night, former X Factor finalist Rylan Clark became the winner of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, and of course, he’s about to join his fellow XF finalists on the show’s live tour…
So it’s no surprise then to hear that close friends predict that Essex boy Rylan will become a millionaire within what amounts to weeks, now that the nation has taken him to their hearts.
Rylan was of course a hate figure – to some – during his time on X Factor, however, arguably luckily for him, his fellow finalist Christopher Maloney took that title from him by throwing a hissy fit during the show’s final.
However, back to what Rylan might be expected to earn in coming months, and as mentioned, he’s off on the X Factor tour, which should land him around £100,000.
Heat magazine reports that he received around £250,000 to appear on CBB, and with post-victory interviews and other TV appearances to talk about his time in the house, he should make another £100,000.
However, Rylan’s apparently planning to launch his own range of clothing and accessories soon, as well as penning a book.
One friend of Rylan’s told the magazine, “Rylan’s been desperate to be famous since he was 10-years-old…
“His dream is to have his face on the front of books, T–shirts, drinks – he wants to take over the world.”
Well his dreams of world domination got off to a good start when around 3.25million of us tuned in to watch him take the CBB crown last night. And around 1.40million viewers watched spin-off show Bit on the Side last night too.
It was a well deserved win wasn’t it? Here’s a look at an interview with Rylan after he won last night…
