Nigel Farage is reportedly set to be paid £1.5 million for his appearance on I’m A Celebrity 2023. If the fee is correct, this is believed to be three times the highest fee a celebrity would have received in the history of the show.

According to the Daily Mail, it is Georgia Toffolo, former Made in Chelsea star, and ‘Queen of the Jungle,’ who is behind the deal. The article reported that“Today she’s on her way to becoming a super-agent after founding her own agency which, after just three years of trading, now has a turnover of millions of pounds a year. Indeed, the Farage contract could net her 20 percent of the fee, which would mean £300,000 winging its way into her bank account.”
