I'm A Celebrity contestants' fees 'revealed'

According to reports, 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. Some rumours have suggested that Toff is lowest paid of the lot, getting 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."

However it should be noted that the celebs are unlikely to see anywhere near close to those amounts in their bank accounts, if the figures are to be believed in any case.

BBC newsreader Michael Beurk, who took part in the 2014 series, previously said of his fee: “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."

Still, it's a load of money for sunning yourself in Australia for three weeks, even if you need to down some blended scorpion or eat a moth every now and then.

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