Celebrity Trader

What is Celebrity Trader?

New celeb each month

Every month we challenge a celebrity to take on the task of trading the financial markets.

Our celeb traders will have to learn to speculate on price levels across major global markets to net a profit and avoid losing face with their fellow celebs.

Profits to charity

To add a little extra pressure, we’ve given each celeb an initial balance of £2500 in their account and they'll be attempting to raise money for their charity of choice.

Celebrity trading battles

Some of the more competitive contestants entered into a nail-biting trading battle with their fellow celeb traders. With competitors from the diverse worlds of sport, news, music and TV, it’s hard to guess who’ll come out on top!
