How much I'm A Celebrity contestants get paid as 2023 line up is announced

How much I'm A Celebrity contestants get paid as 2023 line up is announced

This year's I'm A Celeb line-up was revealed yesterday

The annual winter event that sweeps the nation and swaps Christmas trees for creepy crawlies is nearly here.

Yep, it’s just over a week to go until I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! lands on our tellies. And the line-up has already been revealed.

Leaked yesterday, the list of celebrities entering the jungle this year includes a controversial politician, a champion boxer, a comedian and a boyband star.

So yeah, pretty much the usual.

The ITV series returns next Sunday 19 November and we’ve got a right mix of contestants taking part.

This year’s I’m A Celeb line-up features Fred Sirieix, Frankie Dettori, Nella Rose, Tony Bellew, Nigel Farage, Josie Gibson, Nick Pickard, Jamie-Lynn Spears, Danielle Harold, Sam Thompson, Marvin Humes and Grace Dent heading into the jungle.

But just how much cash is the former UKIP leader getting paid to take part?

Well, ITV doesn’t disclose how much the celebrities get paid to appear on the popular TV show, but in the past, they’ve gotten anything from the likes of £30,000 to the mega £900,000.

The stars don’t receive a cash prize if they’re crowned king or queen of the jungle, they simply just get paid to take part.

So, that’s nearly one million quid to go and eat some animal’s anus and sleep in a hammock.

Back in 2018, Deal or No Deal legend Noel Edmonds was said to be the highest-paid star yet with a whopping £550,000 cashed in.

And then last year, pop star Boy George reportedly becoming one of the highest-paid contestants ever. Mail Online said the ‘Karma Chameleon’ singer raked in £900,000 for his stint on the show.

Matt Hancock used to be a Tory MP, but now sits as an independent after appearing on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Robert Peston reported back in February that former Health Secretary Matt Hancock was paid £400,000 before tax for taking part in I’m A Celeb.

Apparently though, Hancock said he received £320,000 and reportedly gave £10,000 of the fee to charity.

Each contestant on the ITV reality show gets paid a different amount, as they can negotiate a fee for their presence.

This is different to the likes of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, where the celebs are said to receive a flat fee that can’t be changed.

There’s been uproar about Farage taking part in this year’s I’m A Celeb series as some viewers say they ‘refuse’ to watch it with him in it.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is set to return to ITV at 9pm on Sunday 19 November.
