What does the I’m A Celebrity winner get?
Other than initial sign-up fee, celebrities don’t win anything else for being crowned the winner.
They don’t even get to keep the crown and the sceptre.
McFly’s Dougie Poynter, explained in Sunday Brunch in October that celebs must return the crown and sceptre after they’ve won.
You have to give that back, Dougie said. As soon as they cut and say you won, theyre like, Yeah, well take that back now thanks.
