Cricketer Shane Warne has reportedly taken a massive pay package to appear in this seasons ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here’

The rumour mill has been in overdrive on whether or not the former Australian cricket captain will be one of the 10 celebrities who will be heading to the South African Jungle.

So will he or won’t he?

Well, fresh reports from The Daily Mail say that Warnie has signed on with Ch10’s I’m A Celebrity.. Get Me Out Of Here’ for a whopping $2 million.

Showbiz reporter Peter Ford confirmed the news on a breakfast show, saying that Warne is being very careful with what he is saying and tiptoeing around the media:

“He’s been playing word games and choosing his words very carefully by saying he ‘hadn’t signed’ anything. There is an agreement in place. He is going to do it. I’ve heard this from three sources”

Shane fuelled the speculation after posting this throwback of himself with long hair on Instagram over the weekend with the caption:

“Thinking of growing my hair long again like this? Thoughts?”

Shane Warne teases fans with Instagram post

Last week Warne's manager, James Erskine, told Fairfax:

'Shane Warne has not signed any deal with C10, ITV or any other entity for IAC , I've heard rumours of all sorts of Sports Stars ,and we turned down a guest appearance this year and last for a 24 hour visit."
