According to The Sun newspaper, boxer Amir Khan is the highest paid celeb this year with a rumoured fee of between £300,000 and £400,000.

Other 'bigger names' will be commanding fees around £250,000.

At the other end, smaller stars could be getting less than a tenth of that.

According to reports, Toff is pocketing just £13,000 for her stint in the camp.

A source explained: "There's a very wide range of payments on the show, and every year some of the top names bag themselves around £250,000.

"This year Amir and Stanley are probably the biggest names, along with Jennie off Coronation Street. But the pay scale slides all the way down to about a tenth of that.

"The least known stars tend to get somewhere around the £25,000 mark."
