Roman Kemp ‘rakes in £1million’ after I’m A Celeb with swish car ads and TV gigs

Having successfully won viewers over, Roman Kemp narrowly missed out on the I'm A Celeb crown last year, landing in third place in the competition.

Since then, the 27-year-old's star profile has been on the rise – much like his bank balance, according to reports.

The Capital FM radio presenter is thought to have earned £1million since leaving the Aussie jungle, thanks to lucrative sponsorship deals and telly gigs.

Roman follows in the footsteps of his celeb parents – his dad, Martin Kemp, is known as a member of the legendary band Spandau Ballet and as an EastEnders veteran.

His mum Shirlie Kemp rose to fame in the 80s, singing with Wham! and performing as part of the duo Pepsi & Shirlie.

Making his own living, Roman has spent the last few months collaborating with major brands like Cadbury's, Coca Cola, and Smirnoff for Instagram advertisements.

On top of that, he landed a spot on Celebrity Gogglebox with his dad Martin, nattering away about the week in telly from their sofa.

According to The Sun, the cast can snap up £2,000 per episode of the popular Channel 4 reality series, making a pretty penny.

A source told the publication: "On top of the £2,000 per episode the pair pocket for taking part, there is also an unlimited kitty for constant takeaways, booze and snacks.

"It's the best job on the box and it's not surprising so many people are clamouring to take part!"

While continuing to host his radio breakfast show, Roman has signed up to feature in ITV2's new show Celebrity Karaoke Club.

Another major achievement, his new ITV series with his dad, Martin & Roman's Sunday Best!, sees the duo interview celeb guests via video link as they relax at home.

Working alongside his dad once again, the father-son duo filmed a lengthy advertisement for car brand Volkswagen back in July, spanning a whopping three and half minutes.

Despite his major success in recent months, Roman remains as humble as ever, recently admitting the idea of fame "scares" him.

Speaking to i in July, he said: "If I'm in a restaurant trying to have a nice night, or if I'm by my house and someone comes up to me and asks me for a photo, I'm scared.

"You don't want to disappoint anyone by saying no. I know, 100 per cent, given the people I was fortunate enough to be around growing up, that fame itself is something that actually scares me."

Daily Star Online has contacted Roman and Channel 4's reps for comment.
