Noel Edmonds getting £600,000 for taking part in this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here

Crikey.

Noel Edmonds is the highest paid I’m A Celebrity 2018 contestant after bagging himself a whopping £600,000 fee.

The 69-year-old presenter best known for Noel Edmond's House Party and Deal or No Deal was a late arrival to the line-up and joins the likes of Nick Knowles, Fleur East and The Chase’s Anne Hegerty.

His fee is £100,000 more than fellow contestant and football manager Harry Redknapp.

They have really pushed the boat out this year in terms of signings and have spent more than ever before.

Harry and Noel are over £1 million between the two of them, and they’ve spent good money on Nick Knowles and Rita Simons too.

ITV have reduced the total number of contestants to 11 because of the soaring costs.

Other celebrities taking part include John Barrowman, Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer and EastEnders star Rita Simons (Roxy Mitchell).
