Kirk from Corrie is a firm fan’s favourite after just one episode
Andrew Whyment is the new clear favourite to win I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, after spending just one night in the jungle.
Colloquially known as Kirk from Corrie, the soap star has been cut from 6/1 outsider into 9/4 clear favourite to win the show.
That’s due to a high influx of bets on Whyment to be crowned king of the jungle, with a whopping 48% of all bets in the last 24 hours backing him.
Whyment has now leapfrogged previous favourites, Roman Kemp (4/1) and Jacqueline Jossa (7/1) at the top of the market.
Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner is now the fourth favourite at 8/1, followed by Kate Garraway, a big market mover, who is now 11/1 best price.
Viewers were left in stitches last night when Whyment joked throughout the Bushtucker Trial, ‘fangirling’ over the show that he evidently loves.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “There have been more favourites to win I’m a Celebrity than times Ian Wright has moaned about eating – which is definitely saying something.
“Wright, Jenner, Jossa and Kemp have all had their shots at the top of the market, but it’s the courier from Weatherfield that’s overtaken them all.
“Speaking of delivering, Whyment certainly has in his show debut, and is a welcome parcel for the camp’s morale. “
