As the nights get darker and colder, there is no better way to spend your evenings than get cosy on the sofa and watch some great TV – cue I’m A Celebrity 2020.

The nation’s favourite reality show is back on our screens for a 20th series and sees 10 celebrities including Vernon Kay and Mo Farah compete to win the coveted title of King or Queen of the Jungle.

But what will the winning celeb get for completing gag-worthy challenges, and spending weeks sleeping in a haunted castle in wet Wales?

Here’s all you need to know.

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

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

However, they do get the prestigious title of King/Queen of the Jungle, and they are typically scooped up to appear on various other TV shows – for which they will likely be paid a fair amount.

The celebs are given a set pay package to appear on the show, which they will get whether they are kicked out in the first round of eliminations or make it all the way to the final.

The pay varies drastically between celebs.

Mo Farah is taking home a massive £300,000 for his stint on the show, whereas AJ Pritchard is only being paid £50,000, according to The Sun.
