Big Zuu is on the box this weekend as he appears on Saturday Night Takeaway as the guest announcer – but does he have a wife and what is his net worth?

No doubt many viewers will want to know more about the BAFTA-winning star and rapper as they see him on TV.

So here is a rundown of the need-to-know essentials about the London-born 27-year-old whose full name is Zuhair Hassan.

Is Big Zuu married? Does he have a wife?

According to internet reports, Big Zuu is single. He is not married and is not thought to have a partner.

But it may be he keeps his private life private.

What is Big Zuu’s net worth?

Unsubstantiated claims online indicated Big Zuu may have a net worth of £2.5million.

He’s certainly enjoyed plenty of professional success with his grime MC and rapping career, with hits such as Magical and Duppy.

Big Zuu also has over 30,000 followers on YouTube and has performed at festivals such as Lovebox.

He’s also acted in the likes of sitcom Sneakerhead, playing Mulenga, was a mentor on BBC3 gameshow Hungry for It, and has been a DJ for KISS FM.

However, while these ventures have probably added up to a pretty penny or two for Big Zuu, it seems unlikely he has disclosed his wealth online himself.

And so any reports about his net worth without evidence should be considered unreliable.
