Where Does Ashley Banjo’s Net Worth Come From?
He left his studies behind to focus on his dancing career and the troupe eventually beat out Susan Boyle in the Britain’s Got Talent Final in 2009.
At the time, Diversity had already won the 2007 Street Dance Weekend event. Following winning the competition, the dance troupe performed in front of Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Variety Show.
After their victory on the show, Diversity went on a holiday tour although at the end of the tour, Banjo suffered an injury and was unable to complete the shows.
He later choreographed a Christmas tour for group and their Limitless tour which happened at the end of 2013.
Banjo has appeared on the judging panel of several different shows.
Starting with the show “Got To Dance” on Sky1, Banjo has sat in the judging seat since 2010 and will continue onto the upcoming fifth season.
Since 2018, he has also sat on the panel of Dancing on Ice.
Aside from being a judge, Ashely has appeared on shows such as Celebrity Juice, The Cube, Stella and has also appeared as a roving reporter on the Pride of Britain Awards.
What About His Personal Life?
Ashely Banjo proposed to his partner, Francesca Abbot, back in October 2014. Abbot is also a dancer and part of the dance troupe Out Of The Shadows. Getting married in July 2015, we can only imagine how impressive their first dance was!
On the day, Ashley’s brother Jordan (who is also a member of Diversity) was the best man. Posting about his speech, Jordan said:
“This is a moment that I’ll never forget. He’s got my back in a way that only brothers understand. And I’ll always be there for him no matter what.”
Together, the couple have two children; Rose Adura who was born on 21 February 2019 and Micah Grace who was born on 27 Marc 2020.
After giving birth at a central London hospital, the couple decided to isolate for a week away from their oldest daughter in order to prevent spreading the virus.
The dancer explained:
“We couldn’t risk bringing the virus home and all of us getting ill at once whilst Chess is still in recovery.”
The family are now all back together.
