Now, the amount of money the I’m A Celeb cast of 2023 were paid per episode has been worked out.

Up next is Jamie Lynn Spears, with earnings of £37,715 per episode during her time in the jungle.

Exiting the jungle as the first departure and only lasting 15 episodes, jockey Frankie Dettori still bagged a substantial payday, with £20k per episode and an overall total of £300k for his time in Australia. This positions him as the third highest paid celebrity on the 2023 series.
