In a shockingly unfair division of wealth, it turns out the nation’s radio sweetheart and model Lisa Snowden will be earning £20k less than Jordan.

Maybe she’s just in it for the late, lazy mornings spent in a hammock, rather than in the breakfast radio studio.

Salary: £70,000

Equally, Scarlett Moffat – the Geordie lass who is arguably the best thing to ever happen to Channel 4’s Gogglebox since Leon met June – will be entering the jungle for the same princely sum as Snowden.

Olympic hockey player, Sam Quek, will be earning a pretty penny.

Salary: between £70,000 and £40,000
