Strictly Come Dancing: Professional dancers such as Brendan Cole have previously hit out at the fee they get [BBC]
Strictly Come Dancing is getting closer and closer to returning to our screens for the 2017 edition.
While viewers of the BBC One show are eager for the full celebrity line-up to be revealed, others are super exited to see the professional dancers back on their box.
Because lets face it, they hold the entire thing together. But how much do professional dancers like Brendan Cole and Janette Manrara actually get paid?
According to one source, it’s a whopping £30,000 across the 14 week period, reports The Sun.

It’s unclear if this fee goes up if they waltz their famous partner into the final.
While this may seen like a considerable sum, it barely matches what the esteemed judges get paid to offer their critique.
This year, Shirley Ballas will be replacing Len Goodman, (who stepped down from his role) to join Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell for the new Strictly Come Dancing series, starting in September.
And the sam source claimed the panel have been paid around £110,00 each per series of the show.

And then there’s the celebs like Molly King, Ruth Langsford and Gemma Atkinson who are being promised a pretty penny, too.
That’s why dancers have previously publicly hit out at their wage.
Feisty Brendan previously told Now magazine: “My money from Strictly just about pays the bills. I don’t have a car. I would like to get one, but until then I’m on the Tube.
“I don’t even own my house. I can’t afford it. I rent where I live.”
But back in 2012, never-hold-back Bruno told The Mirror: “Those are the terms of the negotiations. If you don’t like it, stop moaning and f**k off!”
