It’s here. I’m a Celebrity 2020 has arrived and the lineup is brilliant. The first episode was full of excitement, with the cast learning about the new location in Wales. Not only that, but there were some hilarious moments like Jordon North being sick into a bush….
But the question is how much are these celebrities being paid for their appearances on the show. Here’s what we know…
Vernon Kay – £250,000
Presenter Vernon Kay is reportedly getting paid the most amount of money, at a call quarter of a million.
The 46-year-old TV presenter has reportedly been asked numerous times before to do the show, but finally agreed to sign up for a hefty price.
An insider told the Mirror: “Everyone’s so pleased to have Vernon on board, he’s a lovely guy, full of down-to-earth northern charm and perfect for the show.”
Beverley Callard – £125,000
Coronation Street star Beverley said goodbye to Weatherfield and her character, Liz MacDonald, earlier this year. The actress is reportedly being paid a whopping £125,000 to take part.
Jessica Plummer – £75,000
EastEnders’ Jessica Plummer also packed in her soap role as Chantelle Atkins in September, with the character being murdered by her abusive husband.
According to reports, she will be pocketing £75,000 for taking part in I’m A Celeb.
AJ Pritchard – £50,000
Professional dancer AJ Pritchard announced he was bowing out of Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year.
Following in his Love Island star brother Curtis’ reality TV footsteps, he’ll be joining the rest of the celebs in the Welsh castle.

It’s unknown how much EastEnders’ Shane Ritchie will earn. But the Alfie Moon actor said he joined the line up so he could pay off his credit card debt.
It is unknown how much the rest of the stars – Mo Farah, Victoria Derbyshire and Giovanna Fletcher – will be paid for competing.
