The I’m A Celebrity winner has to give a massive chunk of their money to ITV

This seems very unfair.

You’d think after winning I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, you’d be swimming in cash. I mean, they already have buckets in the bank, but they make a little bit more from taking part in the show.

Well, think again – because whoever comes out as King or Queen of the jungle will have to hand over a THIRD of their earnings to ITV.

A contract clause means ITV is entitled to up to a third of what the winner earns in the first month and a half after leaving the jungle, reports MailOnline.

“The earnings clause, which is in force for 45 days following the end of the show, applies to public appearances, contracts and endorsements,” a source said.

It’s unlikely they’ll be able to hide any of her cash either. Under the contract, ITV can reportedly look over her books to see exactly what’s coming in.

Last year, the winner Georgia Toffolo only received £13,000 (compared to Noel Edmonds reportedly receiving £600,000 this year), so it seems fairly unfair for a lot of it to be taken away.
