I’m A Celebrity is back, but how much are the contestants being paid this time around?
I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! has kicked off with a brand new line-up, with Frankie Bridge, Richard Madeley and Arlene Phillips among the contestants.
Previous celebrities have been paid eye-watering amounts to take on the challenge, with Caitlynn Jenner reportedly paid £500,000 to enter the Australian jungle in 2019.
But the ITV show is back in Gwrych Castle in North Wales for the second year running, returning with a line-up of stars ready to battle for the title of King or Queen of the castle.
Here’s what we know about the I’m A Celeb 2021 cast’s fees this year…
Celebrities’ fees are never officially confirmed by the show, but there’s often a lot of reports speculating how much the contestants receive for their three weeks in the castle.
It's reported Richard Madeley is being paid £200,000 for his time on the 2021 series.
Celebrities' individual rates depend on how well known the star is, but it can vary between £30,000 and £500,000.
It’s thought that this year Frankie Bridge is among the celebrities receiving a hefty sum, after the tabloids reported she was offered ‘a bumper deal’ to take part in the show, following her husband Wayne's success on the series in 2016.
In 2020, Vernon Kay was said to be the highest paid celeb, receiving £250,000 for his stint in the castle.
Meanwhile, AJ Pritchard was apparently paid £50,000.
