Tameka Empson is a British stage and screen actor and comedian. Since 2009, she has become a small screen regular – becoming a full-time cast member of EastEnders. She plays the role of Kim Fox, who is sister to Denise Fox and the wife of Vincent Hubbard. The actor has also appeared in a number of films, such as in Beautiful Thing back in 1996.
A year ahead of joining the cast of EastEnders, she appeared in the BBC sitcom Beautiful People, as well as the ITV show Whitechapel.
She’s also a regular performer on stage, starring in the annual pantomime at London’s Hackney Empire since 2004.
It’s not just acting roles which Tameka has taken on for the small screen.
In 2016, she joined the 14th series of the ballroom dancing competition Strictly Come Dancing.
She was partnered with professional dancer Gorka Márquez.
Sadly however, the dancing duo’s chances of getting their hands on the Glitterball trophy was not meant to be.
Despite their best efforts, the pair were the second of the Strictly Come Dancing couples to be eliminated from the competition that year.
Tameka will now take on a very different kind of challenge, starring in Celebrity Apprentice, which is in aid of Comic Relief.
But, while celebrities make a bid to raise cash for charity, some may be pondering how rich the competitors are.
So, just how much has Tameka earned during her successful career?
Unfortunately, little is known about the actor’s net worth.
However, the website Net Worth Post has estimated the figure to stand at $19 million.
This equates to around £14,427,000.
In 2017, the BBC has unveiled which of the EastEnders cast earned the most in that financial year.
In the list of BBC stars’ salaries, Adam Woodyatt (who plays Ian Beale) and Danny Dyer (Mick Carter) were revealed as being paid between £200,000 and £249,000.
From one Celebrity Apprentice star to another, what is the net worth of the former Dragon on Dragons Den, Kelly Hoppen?
Celebrity Apprentice for Comic Relief airs Thursday and Friday on BBC One from 9pm.
