Each year, there’s plenty of speculation as to how much each of the camp mates is getting paid to appear on I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!. But not even the highest-paid camp mates—like Noel Edmonds, who reportedly got £600k for his appearance—earn anywhere near as much as the show’s presenters: Ant and Dec.
How much do Ant and Dec get paid for I’m A Celeb?
It’s difficult to put an exact figure on how much Ant and Dec get paid for I’m A Celeb each year. The pair reportedly signed a three-year £40 million ‘golden handcuffs’ deal with ITV last year. That means they can’t work for other TV networks over the three-year period. The £40 million deal covers not just I’m A Celeb but also their other hit shows throughout the year, including Britain’s Got Talent and Saturday Night Takeaway.
If you want to break it down more, the £40 million deal means that Ant and Dec are on about £3.3 million a month. This is huge, even for TV presenters, but ITV are determined to keep hold of the pair, who have been described as their ‘most prized assets—’ and avoid them being poached by competitors like Amazon.
How rich are Ant and Dec?
Very. According to reports, the pair are estimated to be worth around £62 million each. They each have a number of property investments and jointly own two companies: Mitre Holdings (named after the pub in Byker Grove) and Hurley Promotions (named after Ant’s dog). The pair are also said to be insured for £1 million against each other’s deaths.
