EastEnders star reveals the soap’s mind-blowing salaries
RORY Jennings, an ex-Eastenders star, revealed the staggering salary he received on the BBC soap.
Rory, 38, played bad boy Craig Dixon in 2007 had the potential to rake in more than what today would be worth £10,000 per week.
The former actor only appeared on Eastenders for a few months in 2007 and revealed he would make £1,000 per episode.
An omnibus, in which the BBC would play back-to back episodes of Eastenders each Sunday afternoon, could also help him make more money.
“I was on £1000 per episode, and this was way back in the day. Rory explained that then there was the Sunday repeat and the Omnibus on Sunday. This was for people who had been hungover between 12pm and 3pm.” The Fellas Podcast.
“They would do all the episodes from the week on a Sunday, and you would get 80% of your fee again.”
The podcast host added: “So you’d get a grand per episode and then 80% of that for the Sunday show. So in theory you could be in four episodes per week, which is £4000 and then the 80% meant you were getting six grand a week.”
