Based on previous seasons, there will typically be three contestants left for the finale and the winner as well as runners up appear on various other TV shows for which they’ll be paid well.
The stars are also given an impressive pay package to appear on the survival show, which they end up getting whether or not they are kicked out in the first round of eliminations or make it to the final.
ITV rarely reveals what they pay their line-up, but its known that the pay varies depending on well-known the celebrity is.
For example, this year’s contestant Richard Madeley was reported to have been roped in for £200,000 deal, which he is set receive despite leaving the show before the first round of eliminations.
Similarly in previous years, Olympic champion Sir Mo Farah reportedly took home a massive £300,000 for his 2020 stint while Corrie fame Beverley Callard is thought to have been paid £125,000, The Sun reported.
As well as receiving a fee for starring on the show, winners are also likely to get a whole host of lucrative brand and TV deals, too.
