Two I’m A Celebrity 2020 campmates are among the highest paid in the show’s history – for a short stint.
The ITV show came to an end on Friday, December 4, after it was held in the UK for the first time.
Despite not shipping the stars to Australia, the wages were still high for the celebrities for their time in a Welsh castle.
The best-paid was Mo Farah, whose £300,000 for less than a month’s work makes him the seventh best-paid campmate in history.
And he’s not far ahead of Vernon Kay, whose £250,000 earnings put him in the top 10 in history.
But it’s all a far reach from the best paid campmate ever – one Noel Edmonds.
Here is the rundown:
1. Noel Edmonds – £600,000
Noel was expensive – but didn’t prove all that popular.
He was more than even Caitlyn Jenner when he joined the 2018 cast.
However, despite costing all that money, he was the first to be voted out of the camp.
= 3. Caitlyn Jenner and Harry Redknapp – £500,000
There has been a few footballers on the show, but it is a manager who cost the most.
Harry Redknapp landed a cool half a million when he went on aged 73 in 2018.
And, of course, he was crowned King of the Jungle.
Probably the best known global star to go on the show, Caitlyn Jenner, matched Redknapp’s fee.
4. Ian Wright – £400,000
Footballers are expensive, we all know that, and so are former ones.
One time Arsenal striker Ian Wright trousered £400,000 in 2019.
5. Amir Khan – £400,000
Bolton boxer Amir Khan was once the best-paid candidate in history, when he was on the show in 2017.
The 33-year-old athlete’s pay eclipsed the previous record, which was thought to have been given to Katie Price.
6. Katie Price – £350,000
Better known as Jordan at the time, Katie is probably best known for meeting future husband Peter Andre on the show.
She has actually been on it twice – once in 2004 – but it was in 2009 when she was paid £350k.
7. Mo Farah – £300,000
That number of gold medals was never going to come cheap.
Mo has been a fairly quiet campmate this year, but his bank balance is pretty loud.
The four-time Olympic medal winner may have been sharing the same rice and beans as other contestants, but he has been earning four times that of some of the others.
=10. Vernon Kay, Jennie McAlpine and Nadine Coyle – £250,000
Vernon has been a bit of a camp leader in 2020, but he was second in terms of income.
Despite being arguably the second most famous person in his house, he has cleared a quarter of a million pounds this year.
He joins Corries star Jennie McAlpine, who plays Fiz Brown and was in the 2017 series.
Ex-Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle was also paid £250,000 for her 2019 stint.
