Declan Donnelly is fronting this year's I'm A Celeb with newcomer Holly Willoughby. But how much is Dec being paid? Star's salary uncovered.

I'm A Celeb host Dec, 43, has returned for another series of the show, but this time alongside Holly Willoughby, 37.

It is the first time the Geordie has hosted the show without presenting buddy Ant McPartlin since I'm A Celeb began in 2002.

And the gig is a well paid one; it is reported Ant and Dec got as much as £2.5million each for hosting duties show last year.


And with recent reports of Holly Willoughby earning a cool £2.5million for her co-hosting duties this year, it seems likely that Dec is back on the same wage as 2017.

According to The Sun, Dec is work £62million, and earns around £8.4million a year as part of a 'Golden Handshake' deal with ITV.

The new father appears loyal to the channel, with the likes of I'm a Celeb, Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and Britain's Got Talent all featuring on ITV.

Similarly, Holly fronts many of the channel's shows, including Dancing On Ice and This Morning.

Holly and Dec have won the hearts of fans after many were left sceptical about seeing Dec co-host without his usual partner in crime.

I'm A Celeb continues tonight on ITV1 at 9pm.
