Not a bad payday for a couple of weeks in Australia
The reported figures that each celebrity has been paid to appear on this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here have been shared online.
The new series of I’m A Celebrity got underway on Sunday, with a bumper 105-minute episode.
Viewers saw the likes of Boy George, former footballer Jill Scott, ex-rugby union player Mike Tindall, Corrie star Sue Cleaver, DJ Chris Moyles enter the jungle.
And some are reportedly being paid far more than others for their stint in the jungle.
Although ITV doesn’t disclose details of how much contestants are paid, every year reports circulate about the size of each campmates’ paychecks.
According to Super TV on Twitter, the fees range from the tens of thousands for Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner and comedian Babatunde, to the hundreds of thousands for big names such as Boy George, Matt Hancock and Chris Moyles.
You can see the full list of figures below.

Despite being the early favourite to win the series, England footballer Jill Scott is in the bottom half of earners out of this year’s batch of celebs.
And according to some reports, Boy George’s touted half a million pound payday could actually be almost double this.
A source told the MailOnline that the ‘Karma Chameleon’ singer is set to bag “close to £900,000” for his time on the show.
If true, the figure would be the highest ever paid to a contestant on I’m a Celebrity.
The most expensive star to date was reportedly Noel Edmonds, who was apparently paid a handsome £600,000 for his time in the jungle.
One contestant whose figure will be officially confirmed at some point is former health secretary Matt Hancock.
A spokesperson for the Tory MP has confirmed that he will declare his fee to Parliament per procedure, adding that he will donate some of the money he earns to charity.
Meanwhile, it seems unlikely that Olivia Attwood will take home much of her rumoured £125,000 paycheck, after she spent just 24 hours in the jungle.
In previous years, it has been reported that contestants must stay in camp for at least 72 hours in order to receive their full payment from ITV.
