Model Simone Holtznagel has revealed she was paid just $30k for iconic Playboy shoot to her I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! camp mates.

The former Australia's Next Top Model contestant graced the iconic men's mag cover in 2015, but it seems she didn't earn the big bucks for her appearance.

Talking to Vicky Pattison and Jackie Gilles on last night's I'm A Celebrity! episode, the blonde revealed how her notable appearance came about.

"My agent rang me and she was like, 'Playboy want you to be a playmate,'" she said, to which Vicky, 30, verified whether that involved being "naked".

"Yeah, I was like, 'Hmm, I don't want to do that.'"

Despite feeling like the opportunity could go 'two ways', Simone agreed to do the shoot but not without having to bare all in a 'test shoot'.

"I had to get fully naked in front of this old little woman, she took me into the dressing room and gave me this really beautiful silk dressing gown," she said. "Then I had to get fully naked and let her take photos of me. It was weird, but it wasn't uncomfortable."

"Oh and you get paid thirty thousand dollars for being a centrefold."

Whilst Simone, 24, has previously said it was an 'honour' to pose for the infamous masthead, her pay day seems to pail in comparison to other stars who've stripped for the publication.

Sophie Monk initially turned down $1 million to strip for the magazine but three years later she gave it the green light and refused to disclose how much she was paid.

Elle Macphearson also posed for the lads' mag, famously saying she decided to get naked 'on her own terms' but the supermodel — who is worth $60 million — has never revealed how much she was paid.

Hugh Hefner, the founder of the iconic publication, sadly died in September 2017, aged 91.
