Jill Scott is reportedly set to earn millions after proving popular with I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! viewers.
The former England footballer, 35, who is the bookies’ favourite to win the show on Sunday, is being lined up for various TV show and endorsement deals, according to the Mirror.
Ex Lioness team member Jill would follow in the footsteps of 2018 I’m A Celebrity winner – former footballer and manager Harry Redknapp – who made the most of his reality series success with book and advertising deals.

Jill rose to fame when she played a part in England’s Euros victory this summer but her fanbase grew after she entered the jungle.
A source told the publication: ‘Jill is being loved by the audience, as we hoped she would be.’
They added: ‘The response has been incredible – Jill will be able to pick and choose what she does next.

‘Her team has been bombarded with offers, she also has her coffee shop in Manchester and likes to work there, but she’ll struggle to fit in shifts with the amount of work on offer elsewhere.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Jill for comment.
Jill already has deals with Walkers crisps and Starling Bank and she and her teammates got a £55,000 bonus after their Euros win. She is also being paid £120,000 for her I’m A Celebrity appearance.

During an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine this week, Jill’s fiancée Shelly Unit said of her partner: ‘She’d be grateful and humble and ecstatic, but she’s not in it to win. It’s about the experience.
‘She’s been in football 16 years, been tied down to restrictions, and now being able to do something like this… she’ll enjoy every minute.’

It comes after former rugby player Mike Tindall, 44, was named the eighth star to be voted off I’m A Celebrity on Saturday.
Mike was greeted by his wife Zara, the niece of King Charles – the first royal to visit the jungle to greet a departing star – as he left the camp in Australia’s Queensland.
Zara had been missing from the ranks of friends and family who arrived in the Gold Coast two weeks ago, but the late Queen’s granddaughter had made the 9000-mile trip to support Mike before he missed out on securing a place in the final.

Mike was the latest star to be booted out of the Australian jungle, after the four celebrities took on the iconic Celebrity Cyclone trial.
His departure meant Tory MP Matt defied the odds by making it to the show’s final three alongside Hollyoaks star Owen and Lionness Jill.
In Sunday’s ultimate episode of the 2022 series, the remaining campmates will battle it out to win the title of jungle king or queen.
The three celebrities will take on their final Bushtucker Trials – and for the first time in the show’s history be forced to compete for stars in front of their fellow campmates, which ITV producers hope will add increased tension among the finalists.

They will each take on a gruesome challenge to win an epic final meal together in camp, consisting of a three-course banquet with a starter, main, and dessert.
But it won’t be an easy feat as Jill, Matt and Owen will either take on Flood Your Face, where the unlucky celebrity will have their head in a clear container filled with water and critters, Bushtucker Bonanza, a second instalment of the show’s iconic eating trial, or Rat Race, which will see thousands of bugs in a box.
After his exit was announced, Mike said he was ready to leave the jungle, after hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly told the remaining cast members they were all at risk in the public vote, rather than revealing the bottom two.
He told Ant and Dec: ‘I’m good. It’s been a long time. I can feel my body was getting ready… I’m pretty comfortable with it.’
Upon his exit, the presenters quizzed Mike on his penchant for tiny swimwear, asking if it was his royal wife Zara Tindall’s idea for him to wear the trunks in the camp creek and the shower.
Delighted: Mike was clearly over the moon as he saw his wife waiting for him
What a moment: Zara was on her tip toes as she hugged her husband
Love: The couple shared an emotional embrace at the end of the walkway
He laughed: ‘They were always my idea! You wear trunks in the shower, it’s always a but of fun. Get my pineapples out!’
Before heading to the bridge to meet Mike, Zara was spotted shopping in Australia’s stylish Byron Bay this week as she waited for Mike to be evicted from the show.
Speaking to Ant and Dec about his time in the camp and his run of seven nights in the luxury campervan, Mike said: ‘It’s weird because you don’t want to go in there.
‘You get acclimatised to where you are. I was on the bottom bunk under Owen, so it was dry. Then you go in the RV and it was weird.’
He continued: ‘Before I went in, I imagined the worst case scenario and mine is pretty bad. I was always like, ‘You know that’s going to happen so let’s not it affect you.’

‘Owen, on the other hand, wears it on all his sleeves. You know he’s hungry!
‘I think with this camp, we won a lot of full stars. If Owen had been in a camp where he only had two stars every day.
‘The only time I almost had a little wobble was when we had the nighttime challenge. But then Seann [Walsh] had a wobble, and I could just go back to focus on [helping] Seann.’
Mike said his positive attitude helped him overcome difficult moments in the camp: ‘It’s been a lot of laughs. That’s the best thing. You can get through anything when the humour is good.’
When quizzed on who he wanted to win the show, Mike told Ant and Dec: ‘Jill!’
The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! final airs on ITV1 and ITVX on Sunday 27 November at 9.00pm.
