From soap opera star to full-time Peak District farmer – how rich is Kelvin Fletcher?

Former Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher has recently returned to the limelight.

After trading his life in Oldham for a 120-acre farm in the Peak District, the strict victor busied himself with his new career in the farming industry.

Kelvin, along with his wife Liz and two children Marnie and Milo, have documented their lives through their BBC reality show, Kelvin’s Big Farming Adventure.

The show has been a huge hit with fans and many are eagerly awaiting the hopeful announcement of a second series.

But who is Kelvin Fletcher, what did he star in and how rich is he?

Born and raised in Oldham, Greater Manchester, Fletcher landed some of his earliest TV roles on UK shows including Heartbeat and In Suspicious Circumstances.

He briefly performed in Coronation Street in the late 90s before being selected to audition for Emmerdale.

He appeared in more than 2,000 episodes of the hit series, before being sadly dropped from the cast in 2016.

Since then, Fletcher has won Strictly Come Dancing in 2019 with professional dancer Oti Mabuse.

This year the actor starred in the Channel 5 drama The Teacher alongside Sheridan Smith.

As well as being an actor, the Glitter Ball winner has also had a successful career in motorsport, having competed in the British Touring Car Championship, as well as the British GT Championship.

There are various estimates of Kelvin Fletcher’s net worth – which combines the total wealth of an individual, business or household, while taking into account financial assets and liabilities.

The Briton is believed to be worth around £3.7million.

We expect the family to have paid upwards of around £2million for their 120-acre Peak District farm.

Fletcher also owns a number of farm animals, including 28 Cotswold sheep, three alpacas and three pigs, as well as a number of lambs and cows, which the family also uses as a source of income.

The star has also been spotted driving several luxury cars.

In March 2021, Fletcher was pictured in the shops in his £180,000 Lamborghini Huracan.

However, in 2019 Hello Magazine reported that the soap star was worth around £6million.
