Jedward have apparently been offered £200,000 to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here – but manager Louis Walsh wants more.
ITV1 bosses approached the zany Irish duo, who found fame on The X Factor, after almost 13 million viewers watched them take eighth place at the Eurovision Song Contest.
A source told The Sun: “Whatever your thoughts are on Jedward’s ‘music’, you can’t argue that the lads are great entertainment – 13 million BBC viewers can’t be wrong.
“Watching them try to bolt down creepy crawlies will be TV gold.”
Glamour girl Imogen Thomas is also believed to have been offered a six-figure sum to appear on the show, hosted by Ant and Dec, when it returns in November.
The former Big Brother star has gained notoriety in recent months after being bound by a super-injunction protecting the identity of a married famous footballer she is rumoured to have had an affair with.
Show boses hope the gagging order with be overthrown before the show airs.
Imogen’s agent Max Clifford confirmed an offer had been made: “It would be interesting to see what comes out in the jungle.”
A source added: “It could spark a national guessing game and make this year’s series the most talked-about yet.”
Former X Factor star Stacey Solomon won I’m A Celebrity last year.
