EastEnders Ian Beale star Adam Woodyatt pockets £2.5m as ex-wife ‘relies on food handouts'
EastEnders for 36 years until he quit 13 months ago.Since then, he’s pocketed millions including a reported £250k for his appearance on I’m a Celebrity. He has also starred in the play Looking Good Dead as well as flogging personalised videos for fans on Memmo for a reported £40 a pop. But Adam has been raking in the big bucks with his company XL Management.The firm paid a total of £496,188 in Corporation Tax in 2020 and 2021 combined – based on a fifth of its taxable income of around £2.5m.Adam directs the company alongside Beverley, who he split from in 2019 after 22 years of marriage. But the actor is the majority shareholder with most of the control. Friends of Beverley’s recently told The Sun she was “short on money”. "She has really struggled financially and relied on food donations on occasion recently from family and friends,” they added.The publication reported Adam is making interim payments to Beverley until they settle the divorce.The Express has contacted a representative for Adam for comment. Earlier this year, Adam admitted he would consider returning to EastEnders if the producers asked him - which they might well do soon after the news broke that Danny Dyer is departing as Mick Carter. “They’ve got to come up with a storyline, they’ve got to ask me to go back,” he told The Mirror. “The timing has got to be right for me to go back because I don’t know what else I’m ­going to be doing.”Ian, the longest-serving character on the soap, was last seen fleeing in the night after his wife Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) tried to poison him. A source told The Mirror: “The bosses want Adam back and are prepared to pay – and he knows that. “The ratings are suffering at the moment and they need a big boost like Ian Beale
