Sheryl Gascoigne

Ex-wife of the former footballer Gazza, Sheryl Gascoigne has been revealed as the highest paid star on this year's I'm A Celebrity, scooping £95,000 to appear on the show. The Sun reports that Sheryl originally turned down a £25,000 offer, only for ITV to return and offer more money.

She told the newspaper: "ITV made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I said no earlier in the year and then they came back to me and said, 'Somebody is jittery, will you come in and we will give you X amount? When I picked myself up from the floor I was like 'Yep, OK'. The financial pull has been big."

According to the tabloid, show bosses are hoping Sheryl will talk about her relationship with the former footballing star, who is currently awaiting sentencing on a drink driving charge.

Sheryl also revealed that her children were "beside themselves" with excitement about her appearing on TV.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here starts on ITV1 at 9pm tomorrow!
