For the past two years, I’m A Celebrity has been held at Gwrych Castle in Wales due to the travelling issues with COVID-19. While fans enjoyed watching the ITV reality series take place in the UK, it will be exciting to see the competition venture back to the jungle. The experience alone may be enough to entice some celebrities but the hefty pay cheque has also been a way of convincing big names to fly out.
Who are the highest ever paid I’m A Celebrity stars?
Former football manager Harry Redknapp won the hearts of the nation in 2018, leading him to be crowned the King of the Jungle.
It is believed he was offered a whopping £500,000 to take part in I’m A Celebrity and ITV certainly got their money’s worth from the fan-favourite.
According to reports, he used the money to spoil his family, including his wife Sandra.
A source explained at the time to Daily Mirror: “As a football family, Christmas has always had to play second fiddle for Harry and Sandra.
“Family is important but football is their living. Now Harry is retired he is desperate to make up for lost time.”

Katie Price earned a staggering £450,000 for her time in the show back in 2004.
She is thought to have been paid a lot more than her co-stars that year who were on for just £65,000.
Price is the only celebrity to have entered the jungle on two separate occasions.
She was originally in the show in 2004, where she met her ex-husband Peter Andre, and returned to the show five years later.
Former Deal or No Deal star was given the hefty amount of £600,000 for starring I’m A Celebrity four years ago.
He was parachuted into the camp a few days after the original group moved in and became the “Grand Emperor”.
Sadly, Edmonds didn’t last very long in the reality show, staying in the jungle for just nine days before being voted out.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! returns on Sunday, November 6, at 9pm on ITV.
