You'll never guess who the highest paid I'm A Celebrity star is…

If you're a fan of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here you should be prepared to watch stars eat kangaroo testicles, be covered by bugs and critters and locked underground with rats.

So far this year, the bushtucker trials have been pretty vile, so much so that Amir Khan literally screamed his way out of the first trial…

Bless him.

We didn't think you could pay us enough money to step into the jungle for three weeks and do lots of disgusting trials but after hearing how much the highest paid celeb is getting paid we could be tempted to head into the jungle.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

According to The Sun, the highest paid I'm A Celeb contestant is actually someone from this year's show – Amir Khan!


The ITV reality show first began back in 2002 and apparently the boxer is being paid waaaay more than former contestants Katie Price, Carol Vorderman, Spencer Matthews.

While some of the least know celebrities are reportedly paid £25,000, according to the publication ITV bosses decided to "dig deep" and splash out on £400,000 to sign 30-year-old.

A source told them: "Amir was a great get, but he came at a hefty cost. He’s going to be the best paid celeb they’ve ever had.

"Katie Price got somewhere close, but Amir’s is slightly higher."

They added: "He’s a huge name in sport and current after his recent marriage problems."

Earlier this year, Amir announced he had split from his wife Faryal after he accused her of cheating. They have since reunited with the boxer sharing a photo of himself and his wife who is pregnant with their second child.
