Celebrities are able to boost their bank balances with appearances and endorsements – some prefer to do nightclub PA’s and others like to open up venues or lend their name to a new product but no other opportunities pays better than a stint on a well-known prime time reality TV show.

Charlotte Crosby is rumoured to have been paid $1million AUD for her stint in the Australian version of the hit show that is filmed in South Africa, according to Australia’s Daily Telegraph .

Although Channel 10 – that airs the series down under – has been quiet about how much celebrities are being paid on the show, insiders have told that Charlotte negotiated the huge fee.

Charlotte’s former co-star Perez Hilton has also denied claims she is being paid $1million as the media personality believes Charlotte would have taken a smaller amount than the others as he believes she’s on the show to raise her profile in Australia.

Perez has admitted Australians “had no idea who this person is” and revealed he doesn’t think her pay slip will be large.

As Charlotte is rumoured to have cashed in a cool million for her appearance on the Aussie version of I’m A Celeb, here is a look at some of the highest and lowest fees secured by stars appearing on the jungle show.


Deal or No Deal star Noel Edmonds is said said to have been the highest paid celebrities of the UK series after being paid a huge £600,000 fee.

He only lasted in the jungle for 11 days in 2018 after entering on day five – which means Noel was paid £54,545 a day, £2,272 per hour and £37 per minute!


Football manager Redknapp went on to win the 2018 but he did not win as high a paycheck as his fellow campmate Noel.

The star was thought to have been paid a giant £500,000 wage for being on the popular show – which is not to be sneered at!

Joining Harry in the 500k club was 2019 contestant Caitlyn Jenner.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is thought to have secured the same amount as jam roly-poly loving Harry.


Sporting star Ian Wright is reported to have managed to pick up £400,000 from ITV for the show in 2019.

The 56-year-old former Arsenal striker told in 2016 how he owed £2million in tax.

Several accountants advised him to declare himself bankrupt and he refused, thinking it would end his pundit career – instead, he chose to work hard to pay back the tax and HMRC and that included his I’m A Celeb appearance.

Amir Khan is also thought to have negotiated the same fee when he took part in the series in 2017.

Up until the boxer got the whooping wage Katie Price held the highest fee title for the series after she went into the jungle for a second time.


Katie Price is reported to have received a colossal £350,000 for returning into the jungle in 2009.

However, it was also reported that the glamour model only received a 20th of her fee per day she quit after eight days.

If this is correct the mother-of-five would have only cashed in less than half of her contracted figure.


WAG Rebekah Vardy is thought to have go paid £100,000 for signing up to the reality TV show.

When she was on the show she revealed her plans for the money – which included having another boob job.


Scarlett Moffatt reportedly scooped an eye-watering £70,000 from her three weeks in the jungle.

She went on to win the series and then hosted the spin-off show Extra:Camp.

The down-to-earth northerner was rumoured to have been dropped from the I’m A Celebrity spin-off show to make way for Emily Atack.

However, Scarlett was adamant she decided not to go back to Australia for filming this year as she wanted to spend more time with her family over Christmas.


It’s reported that Myles Stephen got paid £25K for doing I’m A Celebrity.

This makes him one of the lowest paid stars to have flown out to Australia to take part in the TV favourite.

Myles was the sixth star to be voted off in the 2019 series.

Hollyoaks’ Malique Thompson-Dwyer is thought to have made £15,000 for being on the show.

This means he is the lowest paid star to ever take part in the series.

Still, 15k for a few weeks work is not too bad!
