The estimated salaries for the stars of this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here have been revealed, with Noel Edmonds allegedly earning the biggest pay packet.
This comes in stark contrast to some of the other stars’ salaries, with actress Emily Atack set to earn no more than £40,000, and Hollyoaks’ Malique Thompson-Dwyer falls to the bottom of the pack with a mere £15,000.

According to celebrity PR guru Ed Hopkins, several of this year’s camp-mates could easily earn six figures for their time in the jungle, ahead of the much-anticipated launch on Sunday.
Noel has not yet been confirmed as the reported eleventh camp-mate, but it has already been said that he will earn a staggering £600,000 for his time on the show.
‘They have really pushed the boat out this year in terms of signings and have spent more than ever before.’

This means Noel would beat out the second-highest earner Harry Redknapp, who will reportedly earn £500,000 for a stint on the show.
The legendary football manager was previously believed to be the highest paid campmate ever, but has now been pipped to the post.
Harry – whose son is Jamie Redknapp – has a free schedule after he was sacked as manager of Birmingham City Football Club in 2017.

Meanwhile DIY SOS frontman Nick Knowles is to be paid around £200,000 for taking part in the show, after bosses offered him a higher figure in a bid to get him signed on.
Nick was one of the first celebrities to be rumoured as part of this year’s lineup, as it was reported at the time producers had been given a slightly bigger budget than usual in a bid to land some top names.
The TV veteran recently spoke about his ‘healthy fee ‘ in an exclusive interview with MailOnline, where he explained he’d like to spend it on just supporting his family.
