After years of negotiating, it appears the producers of UK’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! have finally snared their woman with news over the weekend that Caitlyn Jenner has agreed to appear in the next series of the show filmed in the Queensland rainforest.
And the 70-year-old hasn’t come cheap, with the show’s producers, ITV, reportedly forking out £500,000 (A$A936,000) to snare Jenner’s signature. That’s the biggest deal in the show’s 19-year history.
An ITV spokesperson telling UK’s The Sun over the weekend: “She’s such a huge name and a great get for producers.
“ITV think she is one of their best ever signings. It’s a real bolt from the blue. They’ve asked her every year for a long time, but she finally felt the time was right.”
According to media reports, Jenner will apparently “spill the beans” on the workings of the Kardashian tribe, which should add some extra spice to the show.
Jenner will join a raft of other celebrities already announced for the next series, including former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, soapie actress Jacqueline Jossa, former England soccer star and now TV commentator Ian Wright and English rugby star James Haskell.
