Does the winner of Im A Celebrity get a cash prize? Everything you need to know

We've really not got long left until the final of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and we can't wait to see who is crowned king or queen of the castle.

Last year, Giovanna Fletcher took home the crown and the countdown is now on to see who it'll be this time around, with the show coming to a close on Sunday, December 12.

And as the final nears, many viewers have been left wondering what the winners of the show receive, and if there's a cash prize.

Let's take a look…

Do the I'm A Celebrity winners get a cash prize?

The answer is no. The person crowned champ doesn't take home a cash prize.

Instead, they're typically given a crown and a glowing reputation of king or queen of the castle or, in former years, the jungle.

The celebrities are, however, paid a set fee to appear on the show.

Each famous face is believed to take home anywhere between £30,000 and £600,000, and this year the highest paid celebrity was believed to be TV personality Richard Madeley, taking home a whopping £200,000 for his appearance on the show.

Amongst other high paid celebrities like Richard who've appeared on the hit show is Harry Redknapp.

It's believed he was offered a hefty £500,000 pay check by ITV bosses to appear on the show, making him one of the most expensive stars in the show's history.

The former football manager, 74, was eventually crowned king of the jungle, so we're sure show bosses saw the huge fee as money well spent.

Prior to Harry's jungle stint, boxer Amir Khan was believed to be the highest paid celeb to ever take part in the series.

Amir was reportedly paid £400,000 to fly out to Australia, with show bosses determined to see him appear on the show.

So far on this year's series, Strictly's Dame Arlene Phillips and Paralympian Kadeena Cox have been voted off the show, with a star to go each night until the final.

While fans watched Kadeena walk out of camp for the final time, they shared their shock that she had been eliminated.

One wrote: "Sad to see Kadeena leave camp so soon. I did vote for her as found her kind, brave and determined. You go girl #ImACeleb #toosoon #gold".

Meanwhile, a third said: "#ImACeleb don't get how #Kadeena has gone and #NaughtBoy is still there".

"Kadeena is out before Naughty Boy?!?!?! Wait… what I’m confused?? #ImACeleb," a fourth wrote.
