Known for sticking to his guns – and having LOTS of opinions – Sam Newman is guaranteed to bring an extra spark to the tension in the South African jungle.

The former host of the AFL Footy Show joined Jase & PJ for their 56 hour on-air marathon when he let it slip that he’s been approached to star in Channel 10’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. 

“I was interviewed about it, and a very nice man asked, ‘would you like to be out with a whole lot of people you don’t know’ and I said ‘not at all’,” he explained. 

“He said, ‘you be perfect’!” 

You might remember Shane Warne’s controversial salary on the show, with rumours circulating that it exceeded $1,000,000.

So, would Sam Newman do it for a casual million dollars?

“Everybody’s got a price about everything,” he responded.


While we don’t know whether Newman will be appearing on the next season, we do know that he has been approached for the role. We couldn’t think of a better person to stir up drama!
