Bradley Walsh is the television presenter who never fails to put smiles on faces with his playful jokes and quick-witted quips on The Chase.
As a result, the 60 year old star has quickly become one of TV’s most loved and best paid stars, having appeared on various shows across the years, from Coronation Street to Doctor Who and, more recently, Bradley Walsh & Son: Breaking Dad, which sees the star travelling with his 23 year old son Barney.
Bradley, who is dad to Barney and Hayley, has made quite the fortune as a result of his TV career, as well as his property firm.
In fact, last year Daily Star reported that the latest accounts from his firm, Wingit Productions, put Bradley’s earnings up a casual £2 million on the previous year.

What’s Bradley’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, presenter Bradley has an impressive £5 million in the bank.
The Sun reported that Bradley had become one of the UK's highest earning stars in 2018, after reportedly earning £4.6 million in one year.
The star’s net worth comes a result of his lengthy career. The dad-of-two, who was recently spotted out walking with wife Donna, left school at 16 and worked as an apprentice jet engineer at Rolls Royce in Watford, before becoming a professional footballer for Brentford where he was spotted by a talent scout.
As a result, Bradley, who has been married to wife Donna Derby since 1997, went on to work as a bluecoat at Pontins in Morecombe, unfortunately spurred on by a series of ankle fractures ending his professional career as a footballer.
In 1997, Bradley’s television career began as he obtained the role of host on The Wheel Of Fortune in 1997 before becoming a Coronation Street regular, playing the role of Danny Baldwin from 2004 until 2006.
He’s also known for his role as Graham O’Brien in Doctor Who, opposite Jodie Whittaker, and has produced two albums during his music career.

His debut, Chasing Dreams, sold a whopping 111,650 copies and beat Zayn Malik’s first solo album Mind of Mine, going on to become the best-selling debut album by a British artist in 2016 – a testament to Bradley’s popularity.
Bradley’s fortune also comes from serving as host of The Chase for 11 years; a popular show which has seen the star also hosting celebrity and family versions.
A source told the Daily Star: “Viewers love Bradley – so at contract time he can always negotiate a tasty deal.”
Bradley, who hilariously pranked Holly Willoughby, was living in a £98,000 terraced house in east London as recently as 2000 but has since moved to his Essex home, and sold his last property for £2.45 million, three years ago.
