Big money! New accounts show the two actors boast huge sums in the banks of their self-titled companies, after rising to fame as siblings Kerry and Kurtan Mucklowe in the ‘mockumentary’

This Country saw Daisy and Charlie appear has hapless siblings a sleepy Cotswolds village, and concluded last year after three series.

The pair have since sold the rights to the programme to the US, with the first trailer for the American remake, titled Welcome To Flatch, released earlier this week.

At the time the pair complained they were ‘skint’ after blowing their earnings on ‘c**p candles and ASOS deliveries.’

Daisy told The Sun: ‘We’re absolutely f****** skint at the moment. I’ve got £150 in my bank.’ 

Charlie added: ‘People see you on TV and they assume you are absolutely rolling in it. The thing is we’ve missed the boat on DVDs. If this was 15 years ago we would be f****** rolling in it.’

Daisy also previously admitted she was making £100 a month as a cleaner and couldn’t afford to buy a McDonald’s before her breakthrough role in This Country.

Speaking on Lorraine she said: ‘It was such a bleak time. I’d just come out of drama school, didn’t get anything, had to move back in with my parents and do a night-time cleaning job.

‘I think I was paid about £100 a month and as we were going round cleaning, we came up with these characters and said, “We have to write something”. Because humour was the only thing getting us through such a depressing time.’

She went on: ‘A lot it of it based on experiences we had. At the end of the first series, they’re talking about how they couldn’t afford a McDonald’s and had to watch their friends eating one, and that was our life.

‘We had nothing and even to try and get up to auditions, £9 to get up on a National Express was such a big chunk of our weekly budget.’
