ITV don't reveal how much each constant is being paid but it is know that depending on the celeb they are usually paid between £30,000 and £600,000. But this year, it is said that ex-MEP Nigel exceeded this and is being paid a whopping £1.5 million.

This year's line up ranges from restauranteur Fred Sirieix to JLS singer Marvin Humes, so how much are they being paid, who's being paid the most, and who's being paid the least? Here's the full payout list.
How much are the I'm A Celebrity contestants paid?
The I'm A Celeb stars are paid a set fee to appear on the show, but this amount varies from contestant to contestant with not all known.
There are only three celebs from this series who's payouts have been reported:
- Nigel Farage - £1.5 million
- Grace Dent - £100,000
- Josie Gibson - £100,000
- Jamie Lynn Spears – Around £250,000
Something we have learned though is that celebs have to stay in the jungle for a minimum of 72 hours if they are to receive any cash - that's to stop anyone walking about too soon.
If last year's pay packets are anything to go by then the celebs can expect to earn between £60,000 to £500,000. 2022 runner up Owen Warner was paid the least last year, but that doesn't mean he is worse off. In previous years, stars of I'm A Celeb have managed to negotiate higher fees and lucrative sonship deals off the back of the show.
How much are Ant and Dec Paid for I'm A Celebrity?
The show's hosts Ant and Dec are said to make an estimated £3.3 million each a month for their time with ITV. And they are said to have signed a £40 million 'golden handcuffs' contract with ITV for three years’ worth of work with the channel.
