What Is Sandi Toksvig’s Net Worth In 2022?

The Danish-British TV presenter is known for numerous accolades, but what is her net worth?

A comedian, writer, activist and TV personality, Sandi Toksvig really can do it all. 

The Danish-British polymath has accomplished significant feats in a plurality of industries, almost an inevitability given she - incredibly - read law, archaeology and anthropology at Girton College, Cambridge. Soon after leaving Cambridge, Toksvig began appearing on children’s TV shows as well as doing the rounds on comedy circuits and working on plays. As she garnered notoriety for her work in TV and theatre, her radio career took off, which truly propelled her to the forefront of the British entertainment industry.

She was a regular voice on popular BBC Radio 4 comedy shows I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and The Unbelievable Truth. Simultaneously, she hosted a number of TV shows, from Fifteen-to-One, which aired until 2019, to Channel 4’s 1001 Things You Should Know in 2012-13. More recently, and more notably, Toksvig became the host of the intellectually stimulating comedy show QI, a role which Stephen Fry held until 2017; she also joined co-host Noel Fielding on The Great British Bake Off in 2017 which she hosted until 2020. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, Toksvig created and performed in “Vox Tox”, a YouTube miniseries concerning the stories of women through history.

With so many accolades and accomplishments to her name, fans are now wondering how much she’s worth.

What Is Sandi Toksvig’s Net Worth?

Sandi Toksvig is worth $8 million (£6.4 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Toksvig’s extensive work in multiple entertainment industries over four decades has facilitated her stratospheric rise and her popularity continues to grow as she engages with more projects. As reported by Express, the vast majority of Toksvig’s capital has come from her TV contracts and her book sales. The Waterstones website shows that Toksvig has written 24 books, both fiction and non-fiction, which have contributed to her income.

Speaking on her exit from a lucrative Bake Off contract in 2020, Toksvig stated that “you can only watch so much meringue dry” before you have to “move along” yet she holds no resentment for her fellow hosts and thoroughly enjoyed her time on the show.

Having come out in 1994, Sandi now lives with her wife of eight years, Debbie Toksvig, on a houseboat and is mother to 3 children which she had with previous partner Peta Stewart.
