Matt Hancock will have to declare how much he got paid for I'm A Celebrity
1 December 2022, 10:36
Former Health Secretary Matt Hancock will be forced to reveal his I'm A Celebrity fee.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the former Health Secretary was paid £45,000 to take part in Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The fee was disclosed on the MPs' Register of Interests, which will also include his I'm A Celebrity fee in due course.
Hancock filmed Celebrity SAS prior to entering the Australian jungle, however, the series will not air until next year.
While we will have to wait for the fee to be declared, it has been reported that Hancock was paid a massive £400,000 for his time on the show.
Prior to his arrival in the Australian camp, Hancock said that some of his fee would be donated to charity, although how much is still unknown.

While many believed Matt Hancock would be the first I'm A Celebrity campmate voted off the show, the MP managed to make it to the final three, coming in third place overall.
While £400,000 is a lot of money, Hancock is not the highest paid I'm A Celebrity star by far.
In 2018, Noel Edmonds was reportedly paid £600,000 to appear on the show alongside Harry Redknapp, who reportedly received £500,000.
In 2019, Caitlyn Jenner was reportedly given a fee of £500,000, the same amount Boy George was reported to have received for his time in the camp this year.
