...But Pennys for soap stars

Once again the award for 'not best dressed' goes to the cast of Fair City.

While Tubridy, O'Callaghan and Kenny could afford to stroll through some of Grafton Street's most upmarket stores, the Carrigstown characters were largely confined to Penneys.

The 47 actors cost €51,209 last year, which is just over €1,000 per character for a programme that airs several times every week. Between May and January of this year they spent another €23,952.
