VISCOUNTESS Weymouth Emma Thynn is used to the glamorous life so the glitzy ballgowns on Strictly Come Dancing should make her feel at home.
The English chef and model – who is married to Ceawlin Thynn, the son of Alexander Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath – is one of the celebs battling it out to get their hands on the coveted Glitterball Trophy in the 17th series of the hit show…
How much is Emma Thynn being paid to join Strictly Come Dancing?
Emma’s payment for signing up to Strictly Come Dancing is thought to be within the region of £25,000 and £40,000.
The Sun previously reported that each celebrity is given a standard £25,000 payment for joining, which rises to £40,000 if they stay until the end of October.
However, her fee could rise to £60,000 if she makes it to the quarter-finals and £100,000 if she wins the entire show.
Who will Emma Thynn be partnered with on Strictly Come Dancing?
Emma definitely has her pick of the boys as there are more than a handful of professional male dancers, who have been confirmed by BBC bosses.
But given that she is a fairly tall woman it is likely she will be paired with an equally statuesque male.
The men who fit that bill in particular are Anton Du Beke, who is believed to be 5ft 11inches and Aljaž Škorjanec, who is reported to stand at 6ft.
Why is Emma Thynn famous?
Emma is an English chef, model and philanthropist, who is a brand ambassador for Fiorucci and has modelled for Dolce and Gabbana.
Born March, 19, 1986, the 33-year-old also runs her own lifestyle website and has an online show, entitled Emma’s Kitchen.
She is married to Ceawlin Thynn, the son of Alexander Thynn, 7th Marquess of Bath and counts herself as a contributing editor of British Vogue.
Speaking about joining Strictly Come Dancing 2019 on Gaby’s show, she said she was relieved that the cat was finally out of the bag after months of secrecy.
One day she will become the first black marchioness in British history when her husband inherits his father’s title and becomes the 8th Marquess of Bath.
A marquess is a title of nobility that ranks between a duke and an earl.
