How Much Jamie Lynn Spears REALLY Made From 'I'm A Celebrity'

Although ITV does not disclose how much each contestant makes on the show, there is a contract in place to make sure stars are compensated for their time as they compete in the camp. Sources told the Daily Mail that, according to the rules of payment outlined in their contract, contestants will receive their full fee if they stay in camp for at least 72 hours. That fee for Jamie Lynn Spears is rumored to be around £250,000 and might vary for every celebrity.

Even though the "Zoey 101" alum might have left the show, she has over two million followers on Instagram, making her the celebrity with the highest follower count to compete. According to Casino.co.uk, Jamie Lynn could be earning up to £3,911 per sponsored post for the show.

Although a spokesperson for the show said that the 32-year-old actress left due to medical reasons, one source told The Mirror that she left the show because she missed her two daughters.

“She has been struggling physically and mentally for some time,” one source told the outlet. “If you look back even last week this is not a complete surprise by any means.”
