How much will contestants be paid for I'm a Celebrity 2020?

The stars' fees vary hugely

The 2020-version of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! will be going ahead with a major twist - instead of the Australian jungle, the action will actually be taking place in a castle in the UK - and we can't wait to see how it will mix things up!

Nevertheless, the line-up of celebs will be giving up their usually glamorous lives to take part in Bush Tucker trials and enjoy a diet of beans and rice, and as you can imagine, leaving behind your home comforts doesn't come for free.

So how much will they be paid this year? Although we're still waiting to find out who will be on the show, 2019's paychecks can give us an idea of how much it costs to entice a celeb to take part...


Caitlyn is reportedly the highest-paid contestant ever

According to reports, I'm a Celeb bosses spent a whopping £1.4million in 2019 on their star line-up, with Caitlyn Jenner reportedly banking the most with a £500,000 fee.

This would make her the highest-paid celeb to ever take part in the show. Of course, when the 2019 series kicked off, hosts Ant and Dec couldn't resist poking fun at her supposed price tag, telling viewers "not to believe everything they read".
