What does the winner of I'm A Celebrity get? | The Sun

EVERY year I'm A Celebrity hits out TV screens with more antics from the campmates, and gruesome Bushtucker Trials.

But there can also be only one winner, and some viewers may wonder what the King or Queen of the Jungle gets as a prize.

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

Every year, I'm A Celebrity sees the campmates undertake extreme living conditions in the Aussie jungle, minimum food rations, and disgusting Bushtucker Trials.

After being whittled down over a few weeks, only three celebrities get to compete in the final.

Now you'd think after undergoing such horrible conditions, the winner would get a HUGE prize – but that is not the case.

The winner gets given a crown and a ceremonial staff, and gets to sit on a specially made throne.

But let's not forget they get the prestigious title of King or Queen of the Jungle, after being voted for by the public.

Meanwhile, for the I'm A Celebrity… South Africa spin-off all stars series, winner Myleene Klass was awarded a different title, as the viewers don't get to vote.

She was crowned the first-ever legend of the ITV show.

Speaking to ITV's Lorraine, hosts Ant and Dec previously explained more about how it worked.

Ant said: “It's slightly different to the show we do in Australia because they go head to head in trials and whoever loses leaves.

"It’s quite brutal, so that’s how we decided the winner.”

Dec added: "So, they're competing to become the first ever I'm A Celebrity ‘Legend of the Savanna’… It’s very special.”

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

The celebs agree a pay package before they enter the camp which can be anywhere between £30,000 and £000,000.

Unlike Strictly where all the stars get the same amount of money to take part, campmates on I'm A Celebrity can demand a fee.

Olympian Mo Farah was reported to have pocketed a whopping £300,000 for appearing on the show while professional dancer AJ Pritchard was estimated to have banked a lower fee of £50,000.

Caitlyn Jenner also reportedly banked £500,000.

However, being crowned winner of I'm A Celebrity also brings with it a lot of clout.

Many of the show's kings and queens have gone onto huge success, which has seen their bank balance increase massively.

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.
