I’m A Celebrity stars’ families causing upset? ‘Lowest paid’ Jordan Banjo won’t want a big bill!

by Lynn Rowlands

During last night’s live edition of I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, telly personality and model Lisa Snowdon became the second star to be voted off the show.

However, she didn’t appear overly bothered about it, and understandably so given that not only will Lisa be paid in full for her jungle stint, she now gets to spend at least a week chilling out at the plush Palazzo Versace hotel…

But of course, her fellow campers’ friends and family have already been enjoying a lengthy stay at the upmarket hotel courtesy of ITV.

However, according to TV Biz today, some of the friends and family have been causing a spot of upset by buying fast-food which they’ve taken to their five-star rooms to eat…

The publication’s article states, “One early offender was property developer Tom Mair, the boyfriend of Olympian Sam Quek, who arrived at the hotel on Australia’s Gold Coast last week.”


Apparently, as he wandered into the hotel clutching a McDonald’s, he was seen “waving it” at James Jordan, husband of camper Ola.

Of the debacle, an unnamed hotel source said, “Some people pay thousands to stay here…

“So there have been raised eyebrows at the sight of their fellow guests lugging bags of smelly fast food up to their rooms.”

But the source added, “When you consider that a coffee at the Versace will set you back £4.80, maybe a Happy Meal isn’t a bad shout.”

We can only assume the coffee is made with boiled unicorn tears or something to justify charging nearly a fiver a cup….

But anyway, while apparently ITV are footing the bill for the rooms, which can cost up to £1,500 per night – they are not paying for the F&F to eat and drink during their stay in the hotel.

However, if anyone runs up any big bills, then the fees the campmates are being paid will surely cover it.


That said though, Diversity star Jordan Banjo is the lowest paid of this year’s campers, and is reportedly being paid ‘just’ £25k for his stint in the jungle.

But as we reported recently, Carol Vorderman is (allegedly) getting paid a whopping £200k.

Better than a poke in the eye with a blunt vicar eh?
