Paloma: Show me the money

Daily Express - - DAY & NIGHT -

FOR­MER men­tor on The Voice UK Paloma Faith reck­ons the only rea­son any­body sits on a judg­ing panel is for the money – and peo­ple dis­put­ing that are talk­ing rub­bish.

When asked if she’d ever con­sider a re­turn to the show she worked on in 2016, she said: “For the right cheque! That’s the real rea­son why any­one’s do­ing any­thing like that. When they say any­thing else they’re bull ******** and it’s ir­ri­tat­ing. No one’s do­ing that be­cause they love sit­ting on a panel.”

She adds to to­day’s is­sue of the i news­pa­per that hav­ing given birth for the first time in De­cem­ber 2016, her re­turn to work last year was a lot sooner than she would have liked. And sur­pris­ingly it was due more to fi­nan­cial rea­sons than any­thing else. The 36-year-old is ru­moured to be worth up­wards of £2mil­lion but she now sug­gests that is not the case at all. “I’m not well-off,” she added. “I think it was a com­bi­na­tion of want­ing to stay rel­e­vant but also gen­er­at­ing an in­come. My ac­coun­tant called me and said, ‘You need to think about earn­ing some money now be­cause oth­er­wise…’ I had a lit­tle panic.”

Mean­while the star, who has fea­tured in four films, says she has never ac­tu­ally given up act­ing, and with tongue planted firmly in cheek, lays the fin­ger of blame for peo­ple think­ing that she has squarely at her agent’s door. “I never left act­ing. I’ve just got a very s*** agent.”

Touché!
