From soap stars to olympic icons, who received the most money to appear on I'm a Celeb?
It's a given that some stars on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! have received higher fees than others, but we've narrowed the list down to the top ten highest-paid celebrities.
If the rumours are true, the below is truly surprising:
Sheryl entered the jungle in 2010. Initially reported to have only been offered £25,000, she managed to negotiate her way to an almost six-figure sum. Combine this with the fact that she only lasted 12 days in the jungle, and this ex-wag made £8,000 a day during her time down under.
Another footballer's wife, Rebekah Vardy, makes it into the top ten with a rumoured fee of £100,000 to enter the jungle last year.
In 2014 former Wigan Athletic, Hull City and Fulham midfielder James Bullard bagged another six-figure sum to enter the I'm a Celeb camp. Lucky for him, he was also the first to be evicted, so all in all not a bad deal for Jimmy.
One half of fashion guru duo Trinny and Susannah, Susannah Constantine reportedly received the impressive six-figure sum of £200,000 to go on I'm A Celebrity. Three years later she continued her reality TV stint by appearing on Strictly Come Dancing… and got eliminated first from the competition.
As if we weren't in serious money territory already, Corrie's Jennie McAlpine was rumoured to have received a quarter of a million pounds to enter the outback. She did, however, warm our hearts on last year's show.
Well, not quite.
The then-Chelsea playboy was supposed to take a hefty £300,000 home after his appearance in the jungle. But he was removed after three days in the camp following a row about his use of steroids.
Who could forget Katie Price and Peter Andre's romance on 2004's I'm a Celeb? But Katie actually received a much higher fee for her appearance in the jungle the second time around, in 2009.
Remember THAT dessert scandal? Yup, that is what we'll remember Amir Khan for on last year's I'm a Celebrity too. And now we'll also remember him for the ridiculous amount of money he received to appear on the show.
The footie manager has reportedly accepted an offer of half a million pounds to appear in this year's series. We're barely more than a week in, but he's already entertained us with stories of ignoring Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice, and who could forget the story of driving over his wife's foot?
Taking the crown for the highest reported fee in I'm a Celeb history is Noel Edmonds. Although he missed almost a week at the beginning of the show, he still reigns as king with his unbelievable fee of well over half a million pounds.
