An insider has said that Tilly Ramsay is set to bank seven figures after her Strictly stint. The 20-year-old star’s popularity soared after she was body shamed by an LBC presenter, but it seems that might have worked in her favour
Strictly Come Dancing star Tilly Ramsay is predicted to become a millionaire after her successful stint on the popular BBC One dancing competition.
Insiders are saying that Tilly’s popularity has soared over the past few weeks, after being exacerbated by the harsh comments from 67-year-old LBC presenter Steve Allen.
When the presenter called her “a chubby little thing”, fans and viewers rallied around to support her – no doubt increasing her popularity.
An insider has said that the 20-year-old competitor is predicted to bank seven figures after her Strictly stint.
Speaking of the fortune she could earn post-Strictly, a source told The Sun that if she’s clever, “she could bank a million over the next couple of years”.

The source said: “She has had loads of offers for endorsements and brand partnerships because companies can see how much appeal she has — especially because of the graceful way she has dealt with being shamed over her body.”
Explaining to the publication, the source said that Tilly’s TikTok, Instagram and Twitter accounts have also grown since she joined Strictly, with her TikTok account alone having over 9.6million followers.

The insider told the publication: “She’s an incredibly hard worker and is juggling university and the show so she will be weighing up her options carefully.
“But ultimately, even if she doesn’t get her hands on the Glitterball trophy she will still be leaving Strictly as a winner,” they concluded.
This comes as Tilly is in with a chance to win the Glitterball trophy, as she is set to dance another week next weekend, after the shock episode on Sunday night.
In last night’s results show, Tilly and her professional partner Nikita Kuzmin were in the bottom two with Adam Peaty and his professional dancer Katya Jones.
Tilly and Nikita’s tango on Saturday night failed to impress the judges, which is why she was left vulnerable and at the risk of being booted off the show.
But after performing again for the judges, Craig Revel Horwood, Anton Du Beke and Motsi Mabuse chose to send home Adam and Katya – in turn saving Tilly.
But head judge Shirley Ballas said she would have chosen to save Adam and Katya.
This comes as Tilly recently opened up about her dad, Gordon Ramsay’s tearful reaction to her Charleston dance a couple of weeks back proved to be a shock, even for her.
The no-nonsense chef was spotted on camera wiping away the tears after his daughter performed the uptempo dance routine.
Speaking on What To Watch, the influencer said: “I still can’t believe he cried, he’s so not that kind of guy!
“The whole family are so supportive and hopefully proud of me. Without their support really none of this would be possible.”
Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One on Saturdays and Sundays.
