From Charlotte Crosby and Vicky Pattison to Zoella: This Is How Old Celebs Were When They Made Their First Million
This is just depressing actually...
In our minds, celebs were born super rich in mansions with butlers running around with spare nappies for them. But unless your parents are mega wealthy like Gigi and Bella Hadid that's not really the case. They've got to work their famous asses off for that first sweet taste of cash.
And some of them reach it younger than others...

When Bethenny became a Real Housewife of New York in 2008 she blasted onto our screens with an idea. We watched her create Skinny Girl, a line of low-calorie drinks and snacks that became a huge success. But 2009 she was a millionaire and she’s now worth £19million.

7. Charlotte Crosbsy – 26
When Charlotte’s fitness DVD became the fastest selling fitness DVD OF ALL TIME she quickly capitalised and brought out a second. She also released two autobiographies, a fashion line with In The Style and has her own show Just Tattoo Of Us. Hence a millionaire by her mid-twenties.
