Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright have become the richest young couple in the TV industry after taking in over £2.6million last year, according to reports.
Former Coronation Street star Michelle, 33, is thought to have earned over £4million since stepping down from the hit ITV soap in 2014.
Her company, Rosia Promotions Limited, cleared £1.2million in 2019, with the company's 'cash in the bank' rising to £1,765,691 from the following year's £584,381.
An insider said of the brunette beauty's fortune: "Michelle works incredibly hard and the rewards have come in for her.

"It was a massive decision for her to leave Britain's most popular show but she knew that she could make far more cash away from the Coronation Street.
"She had to turn down a number of lucrative deals while she was on Corrie because soap stars aren't allowed to advertise.
"Now she is free to do what she wants – and she is getting some amazing acting work, too," the source continued to tell The Sun.
Since quitting her role as Tina McIntyre, the Our Girl star has modelled clothes for Lipsy, launched her own collection with Very and advertised Ambre Solaire beauty products.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark recorded his best financial year ever in 2019, with his company The Wright Looks having reserves of £1,134,776.
And he's expected to take even more cash this year after announcing the launch of his fitness platform TrainWright and being tipped to star in a special 10th anniversary series of the reality show that made him famous.
This means the pair's combined takings for 2019 comes to £2,637,820 — more than any other young TV couple.
The couple — who married in 2015 — are putting their money to good use, with plans for the building of their new home recently emerging online.
They bought their home in October for an estimated £1.3million, with it being revealed in January that they planned to demolish the Essex farmhouse and replace it with a Georgian-style mansion.
Epping Council have now issued the plans for the new build, which has received no objections from Mark and Michelle's neighbours, with their dream pad expected to feature a gym, bar, make-up room and playroom.
