Davina McCall net worth

By Suren Prasad

Davina McCall has a reported net worth of £2 million.

She was born in Wimbledon on October 16, 1967. Prompted by an interest in singing while performing as a schoolgirl, she decided to become a solo artist. Her first demo CD was produced by her then boyfriend and English musician Eric Clapton.

Knowing for her TV appearances, how did McCall make the move from music?

In 1992, she hosted MTV’s Most Wanted Europe, God’s Gift (1995), Prickly Heat (1998) and Streetmate (1998).

Her golden opportunity arrived in 2000, when she was hired to host the new series Big Brother. McCall then went on to host Celebrity Big Brother in 2001, while becoming the regular host of the re-formatted Big Brother’s Big Mouth (2008-10).

Along with Big Brother, McCall hosted other shows, such as BRIT Awards (2000 and 2003), Don’t Try This at Home! (2001), Popstars: The Rivals and The Vault (2002), Reborn in the USA (2003), BAFTAs (2004 and 2006), Davina (2006) and The Friday Night New Year Project 2007.

She voice-acted in the Doctor Who episode “Bad Wolf” (2005), and acted in Big Brother’s zombie parody Dead Set (2008).

McCall hosted Got to Dance (2009-2014) alongside The Million Pound Drop (2010) and later The Biggest Loser and Long Lost Family (2011).
