A source from the show said: ‘The revelations she may come out with will get everyone watching – we hope it’s going to be TV dynamite!’

The producers believe that Ulrika will be revealing secrets about her past relationships with soccer players and most notably former England manager Sven Goran-Eriksson, on the show which will feed media frenzy and will get enormous exposure to the show.

Jonsson, who has earlier taken part in reality shows like Comic Relief Does Fame Academy, ITV’s Dancing On Ice and Channel 4’s Come Dine With Me, is followed by glamour model Lucy Pinder on the pay list with £150,000 and Hollywood actor Verne Troyer with £136,000.

Talking about other participants, former A1 singer Ben Adams will be getting a measly £20,000 while Shameless star Tina Malone and rapper Coolio will be earning £30,000 each.

Ulrika is currently married to a US advertising executive, Brian Monet, and has four children. She gave birth to her fourth child in June this year.
