A quarter of Britons have a side hustle to generate an extra income on top of their full time job, according to Henley Business School. On average they are making an extra £525 a month – with some earning up to £250 a day.
The cost of living crisis is putting increasing pressure on people’s finances, with many people already exhausting every money saving tip.
As a result more people are looking for extra work or a side hustle to pay the bills and the good news is there are plenty of ideas to choose from.
One of the most fun ways to earn extra money is as a film and TV extra – Carolynne Selway is a retired nurse who now appears on our TV screens earning up to £250 a day.

Ms Selway continued: “You can earn £200 to £250 per day depending on your costume, what time you have to be there and travel – all of this.
“It’s not bad money for dressing up – it gets you out there doing things that you probably wouldn’t do in real life.”
The 64-year-old retired trauma nurse said she is signed up with Universal Extras and has worked with a famous Hollywood director.
She says anyone can do it no matter what their background.
