What does the winner of I’m a Celebrity get?

The winner of I’m a Celebrity gets…. nothing.

But, they usually get the prestigious title of King or Queen of the Jungle.

As this show was filmed in Gwrych Castle in Abergele, Wales because of Covid-19 travel restrictions, Giovanna was crowned Queen of the Castle.

The winner of the ITV stalwart is likely to appear on TV shows in the near future, where they are likely to be paid a considerable amount.

If the show returns to its spiritual home of Australia next year, then Giovanna will have the honour of handing over her crown to the winner of the 2021 series.

Jacqueline Jossa, the winner of I’m a Celeb in 2019, was due to play her ceremonial role to finish this year’s series but because she had not been quarantining, she didn’t appear on the final.

Does the winner of I’m a Celebrity get more money?

The celebs agree a pay package before they enter the camp.

Olympian Mo Farah is expected to have pocketed a whopping £300,000 for appearing on the show while professional dancer AJ Pritchard is estimated to have banked £50,000.

Vernon Kay is believed to have picked up a £150,000 pay packet for his stint in the castle, while actress Jessica Plummer is said to have received £75,000.

Who was the first winner of I’m a Celebrity?

Radio DJ Tony Blackburn won the first series of I’m a Celebrity in 2002.

He defeated the late socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and author Christine Hamilton to pick up the gong of King of the Jungle.

A firm favourite from the start, Tony and Tara both managed to remain safe from the public vote throughout their two week stay.

He took part in three trials during his time in the jungle – the Sneaky Snake Run (winning 2/6 stars), the spider web (winning 3/4) and the final trial with Tara, which he completed successfully.
