After weeks of Bushtucker Trials, insane challenges and a whole load drama Down Under, Ant and Dec have finally crowned this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winner.

Now, since the series has been brought to an end with Sam Thompson being crowned this year's King of the Jungle - many fans will be wondering what's in store now for the beloved presenting duo - namely, just how much wonga they're getting paid for the gig.

Ant and Dec have been working together as a tag-team since way back when in the 90s after first co-starring in the children's show Byker Grove.

Now flash-forward three decades and the pair have since teamed up to host heaps of other shows, including Saturday Night Takeaway and Britain's Got Talent.

But it seems that I'm A Celeb is where it's at.

According to Capital FM, Ant and Dec rake in a staggering £3.3 million a month from their hosting duties as part of their three-year exclusive £40 million deal contract with ITV.

The deal also means the pair cannot work with any other broadcaster or streaming service other than ITV, it is also reported.

The outlet reports that said agreement sees Ant and Dec getting paid one total sum for all their work on the various programmes on the network, so the likes of Britain’s Got Talent, I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, Saturday Night Takeaway and Ant and Dec’s DNA Journey are supposedly all part of the eight-figure deal.

Tyla has contacted Ant and Dec's reps for comment. ITV have declined to comment.

And talking of money, I'm A Celeb winner Sam won’t be awarded a cash prize for winning the series and here's why.

Now, any seasoned viewers will know by now that any celeb given the title of King of the Jungle will receive a crown, staff and the chance to sit on the iconic I'm A Celeb throne.

However, it has since been revealed that the Made in Chelsea star will not be going home with a cushy cash prize this season.

The reason for the decision is because, this year, ITV has decided the contestants will only receive a flat fee for appearing on the show.

According to the Mirror, the only condition for receiving such a fee is that campmates must remain in the jungle for at least 72 hours.

And over the last week, we've slowly said goodbye to this year's line-up - with the exception of food critic Grace Dent and US actor Jamie Lynn Spears, who both left the show prematurely during the second week, citing respective 'medical reasons'.

Even though the pair departed early, they lasted over a week in the camp so will still receive their money in full.

While it is unclear how much Sam has earned on the show, celebrities are usually paid between £30,000 and £600,000.
