Ruthie Henshall’s net worth
As Ruthie explained during a conversation with Shane Richie on I’m A Celeb, she was in an on-off relationship with Prince Edward for five years. Because of the West End star’s success and ties to the Royals, we could assume that she doesn’t do too badly for herself. She remains good friends with Prince Edward and attended his wedding to Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
According to CapitalFM, “Ruthie has a rumoured net worth of £500,000“, she’s also set to earn £75,000 from her appearance on I’m A Celebrity.
As well as appearing on the ITV show, Ruthie also presents Magic FM’s ‘Magic At The Musicals‘. The singer, dancer and actress has a combined following of around 10,000 on Instagram (@ruthiehenshallofficial) and Twitter. All things considered, we would estimate Ruthie’s net worth at around £750,000.
