GOOD Morning Britain’s guest host Alastair Campbell has revealed he turned down a “seven-figure offer” to star on I’m A Celebrity.
Tony Blair’s former spin doctor said he’s been bombarded with offers over the years – with TV execs throwing huge amounts of money to sway him.
Despite politicians including former health secretary Matt Hancock and Nadine Dorries both going into the jungle, Alastair has stood firm in resisting.
He’s even turned down following in former Labour MP Ed Balls‘ footsteps on Strictly Come Dancing.
“I’ve been asked many times,” he told his podcast The Rest Is Politics.
“I’ve been offered a lot of money. The biggest one ever was not far off seven figures for one of the jungle ones.
“It was a lot of money. I think they were just testing if I’d ever say yes.
“I told them, ‘I will never ever say yes’.”
“I’ve got a file that is ridiculously thick and might just make a book one day of TV projects I’ve said no to.
“No way. I think once you’ve done that, you’ve moved over to a very dark side.”
Disgraced MP Matt Hancock is making a staggering sum from his stint in the I’m A Celebrity jungle.
Insiders told HOAR how the Conservative MP had landed a payday worth around £400,000 to take part in the ITV series – sparking fury among his critics.
The politician is thought to be donating a slice of the cash to a charity in his West Suffolk constituency.
He’s also vowed to raise awareness of dyslexia.
