Last year, pop icon Boy George became one of the highest-ever paid contestants, with Mail Online reporting that he'd scored £900,000 for his appearance. Up until the singer's stint on the show, Deal or No Deal host Noel Edmonds was believed to be the best-paid star to date, raking in around £550,000 to appear in 2018.

Over the years, several reports have clarified that celebrities typically receive a flat fee and that this amount does not change depending on how long they avoid elimination, or if they win the series. It's highly likely that this is the case for 2023. 

Unlike Strictly Come Dancing, where the celebrities historically receive a flat fee that cannot be negotiated with producers, I'm A Celebrity stars can ask for a higher amount when it comes to theirs.

Considering that former professional boxer Amir Khan has the highest estimated net worth of around £40million, there's a high probability that he is being paid the most for his appearance on I'm A Celebrity: All Stars.
