'Made in Chelsea' star Andy Jordan is furious after learning that his love rival Spencer Matthews earns nearly double what he does on the show
'Made in Chelsea' star Andy Jordan is in a wages war with Spencer Matthews.
The reality TV star is reportedly unhappy after learning that his love rival reportedly earns £400 per episode while he takes home just £250 despite contributing to the show's recent ratings success and BAFTA win.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Andy gets as much screen time as Spencer and brings in as many dramatic storylines, so understandably he thinks he should be paid the same as him. He's already planning on negotiating a better deal next series."
Meanwhile, other less crucial cast members are said to earn £225 per episode, while newcomers receive just £50 for their first series.
A show source explained: "They are given one series to make an impression and get kicked off if they aren't interesting enough. It's tough but it needs to be exciting."
Spencer, 24, has been with 'Made in Chelsea' since its first series in 2011 and insists he isn't concerned about being the show's villain if it helps his salary.
He said: "It doesn't really bother me that the show has made me look like the bad guy because it's powered by drama. So however we get that is important."
