I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is set to return to our screens later this year.

And while there is much speculation around who will be entering the jungle this year, there is one star hosts Ant and Dec are dying to get on the show.

Speaking to Piers’ Good Morning Britain co-star Susanna Reid at the Royal Television Society conference, Dec said: “There is a guy who sits in this seat next to you who has said he would do it for a certain amount.

“Piers has said he would do it for a certain amount of money, which I think we could meet, but he keeps on wriggling out of it."

He went on: “We have a list that we get every year and we add to it and subtract from it."

Piers has previously joked he would been £10 million to go on the show, which sees the celebrities put through bush-tucker trials.

In 2018, he said: “You give me, let’s say, £10 million, and I’ll fly in tomorrow and win it."

While it’s not confirmed how much Piers is actually asking for to appear on the show, £10 million is a lot more than anyone has ever been paid on the show.

Last year, Deal Or No Deal host Noel Edmonds reportedly became one of the highest paid celebrities in the show’s history, bagging £600,000 for his time on the show – which, ironically, was not long as he was voted out first.
