Sofia Vergara has been named the highest paid actress on TV for the fifth year in a row.

The Modern Family stunner blew away other stars of the small screen, taking home a huge $43m in 2016, according to Forbes.

As well as starring in the hit ABC sitcom, Sofia landed lucrative sponsors such as Head and Shoulders, which resulted in a 66% increase on her earnings last year.
