Crissy Rock dumped the ‘obscene’ amounts of money on the ‘greedy’ I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Stars get paid this year when she joined MailOnline’s Jungle Confidential Podcast.
The 64-year-old actress, who starred on the show’s series in 2011, fumed that “some people can’t even pay their electric bills” while the TV stars pocket thousands for just a few weeks of work.
It has been reported that Boy George has been paid £500,000 for his time on the show, while former Health Secretary Matt Hancock will pocket £400,000 and Mike Tindall will leave with £265,000.
Speaking about the amount they paid, she said: “In my day, we didn’t get much money to keep going. When I went in I didn’t have to prove anything – I didn’t go in to win.
“We have never received as much money as we do now. You must return half of your wages to the Australian Government.
“I got £28,000 but only took £14,000 away – I think as they’re getting paid more now – it’s greed, it’s obscene when people can’t even pay for their electricity.”
Radio legend Chris Moyles will pocket £200,000 while Seann Walsh will pocket a £130,000 paycheck.
Love Island’s Olivia Attwood will receive £125,000 while Sue Cleaver will go home with £115,000.
The reality star left fans in shock after being forced to leave the jungle for medical reasons after 24 hours, but is reportedly still being paid in full.
Next up is retired English lioness Jill Scott, who is making £100,000 from her performance.
Charlene White’s contract for the show is £75,000, while Scarlette Douglas and Babatunde Aleshe are on £65,000.
Hollyoaks star Owen Warner will take home £60,000, completing the £2.1m budget spent on the I’m A Celebrity cast this year – one of the biggest bills in the 20-year history of the Show.
This year’s I’m A Celebrity cast is reported to be the richest yet with a combined net worth of over £76million.
Boy George tops the list with a predicted £43.8million while Mike, 44, married to the King’s niece Zara Phillips, follows with a staggering £15.7million.
Chris Moyles, 48, is reportedly boasting £8million while Olivia Attwood, 31, sits at £1.2million. Jill Scott, 35, and Sue Cleaver, 59, are also considered millionaires.
A source recently insisted the cast have not signed on for the ITV reality show because they are short on cash.
They told The Sun: “People think stars sign up for ‘I’m a Celebrity’ just for the money, but a lot of this year’s contestants are already rolling in it. Forget the money, they want the memories.’
I’m A Celebrity airs every night of the week and both weekends after launch – at 9 p.m. each time.
