It's the question on everyone's lips every year, just how much are your favourite celebrities getting paid this year?
Hosted as always by Ant & Dec, the iconic show returned to our television screens last night, with a star-studded cast.
An insider said: "This is a huge amount but ITV see coughing up this kind of cash as a worthwhile investment for the right blend of characters. Producers know that the right combination of stars will get viewers tuning in and staying with the show over the next three weeks — but that costs serious money.
"They're also aware of the fact that the show has been stuck in the UK for the past two years due to Covid — and they wanted to make a huge impact as it returns to Oz. The show has delivered some classic jungle moments in the past thanks to the clever selection of big ticket celebrities and they want to do everything they can to repeat that in 2022."
I'm A Celebrity continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
