Late arrival Danny Baker is said to be getting the most of any celebs although his exact 'six figure' deal has not been reported.

TV personality Carol Vorderman is said to have scooped a cool £200,000 pay cheque.

Ex England footballer Wayne Bridge will reportedly get £150,000 while former EastEnder Larry Lamb and fellow soap star Adam Thomas will enjoy non-specific 'six figure' payouts.

Strictly dancer Ola Jordan will supposedly be getting £90,000 for her appearance.

Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt and Olympic hockey player Sam Quek, TV and Radio presenter Lisa Snowdon will take in around £40,000 - £70,000 each.

That leaves Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo and comic Joel Dommett getting an eighth of the highest fee at 'around £25,000', according to tabloid claims.

However the celebs are unlikely to see anywhere near close to those amounts in their bank accounts.

BBC newsreader Michael Beurk, who took part in the 2014 series, previously revealed that the figures are taxed in Australia.

“If you only knew how much the Australian tax authorities get out of it, you'd realise at the end of the day that it is the glory, I think, I am doing it for," he remarked.

Agent and management fees, plus potentially UK tax, can see a £100,000 pay out drop by nearly half.

Still, it's a load of money for sunning yourself in Australia for three weeks, even if you need to eat a bit of stinky cheese every now and then.

A spokesperson for the ITV said: "We never comment on artists individual contracts."

I'm A Celebrity 2016 starts Sunday night at 9PM on ITV with hosts Ant and Dec.
