With Arlene Phillips and Naughty Boy already considering leaving the I'm A Celebrity castle, we're revealing the rules around quitting the show and the celeb fees.
While half the contestants are living in the usual castle, the other half are living in much more basic conditions in The Clink.
While neither have quit the show yet, we're asking what happens to the contestants' fees if they decide to leave?
According to reports, the stars have to stay in the jungle or the castle for 72 hours in order to receive their full pay cheque.
The Mirror report that if they leave before this date, there is a cut in their fee.
This rule came to light back in 2014, when Gemma Collins claimed she had only been paid a cut of her original fee after she left the jungle after three days.
Following her exit from the show, Gemma revealed she was going to donate the money she did make to charity.
Gemma donated a total of £4,800 to Save The Children, with the rep confirming at the time: "I can confirm that the £4,800 fee was the full and final fee that Gemma received for her participation in last year’s I’m A Celebrity."
When people started to doubt whether that was really the full amount, Gemma's rep responded with a statement which read: "The show is three weeks long and Gemma was in Australia for five days, therefore she will receive a percentage based on that."
At the time, it was reported that ITV had signed Gemma up for the show for £100,000.
