Farage is reportedly being paid a record-breaking fee to appear on the show

Former politician Nigel Farage is one of the most recognisable faces in Britain.

The 59-year-old, who campaigned heavily for Brexit during his time in office, is now hoping to win the public over by appearing on the iconic ITV show ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’

His trip in the jungle is already sparking debate, with many calling for a boycott of the show due to his inclusion and extortionate appearance fee.

Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid has become the latest person to take a public swipe at Farage’s pay cheque.

Nigel Farage set to pocket £1.5 million for jungle stint

Farage is set to become the highest ever paid contestant on ‘I’m A Celeb’ with a record-breaking £1.5 million fee.

The record was previously held by presenter Noel Edmonds.

Edmonds was said to have been paid £600,000 in 2018.

It was a move that backfired at the time, with Edmonds the first one to be axed from the show.

Susanna Reid blasts ‘excessive’ pay-day for Farage

Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid weighed in on the enormous salary the morning after the latest season of the show got underway…

“Not many people would have to be asked twice to do the show with that amount of money.

It’s stomach-churning.

It seems to me a little excessive”

The conservative politician is said to have already accumulated a net worth of around £3.2million.

He earned around $1million from media appearances, largely on Fox News, between 2014 and 2018.

He also hosted The Nigel Farage Show on LBC from 2017 until 2020.
