Here’s some news that might make you quit your job.

Tom Arnold, the Roseanne actor and comedian, has revealed that he was paid up to $700,000 for his two-week stint on Ten’s reality show, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

The star broke the news on Twitter, responding to a follower who asked what had convinced him to appear on the show, shot in the South African jungle.

“$600k, $700k. Feed fam?” he replied.

Considering the winner of the reality show wins just $100,000 for their chosen charity, it’s a controversial sum.

Following some shocked responses, Arnold later apologised for revealing the info, saying the figure had already been published in local newspapers anyway.

“Jerks brag about salaries… It was already in paper. Still classless move, I’m sorry,” he wrote on Twitter. $600k$700k Feed fam?

The actor, the show’s most high-profile name, was the first contestant unceremoniously dumped by viewers, miffed by his grumpy on-set exploits which mainly involved lying in bed and napping.

“It’s the worst thing I’ve ever been through,” he told hosts Chris Brown and Julia Morris, when asked about the experience.

“I didn’t know it was going to be real, or I wouldn’t have signed up for it.” Farewell to the most energetic campmate we’ve ever had.
