With the new series of 'I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!’ expected to begin on Sunday 13th November, the papers have begun linking every name under the sun to the Australian jungle. Some less realistic and less inspiring than others. With a market up and running, it’s our pleasure to run you through some of the names that a number of bookies have priced up.
Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby and Gogglebox’s Scarlett Moffatt are the early favourites for the competition, at best-price 4/1. At 11/2, Craig Charles is expected to do well on his much anticipated return. The former Coronation Street star made a brief appearance back in 2014, but left the jungle after learning of his brother’s sudden death.
There are bound to be a number of Team GB representatives in the jungle this year and one of the rumoured names is Louis Smith. After all, he needs something to do over the next two months having just been banned by British Gymnastics for breaching standards of conduct. The bookmakers make him 8/1 to win the series. Another name being tipped to make the line-up is Nicola Adams. The two-time Olympic gold medallist will undoubtedly do well when it comes down to the trials and looks good value at 12/1.
Elsewhere, two iconic TV presenters, Eamonn Holmes and Robbie Savage, have been touted to appear on the latest series of I’m a Celebrity. The bookies cannot separate the two, making both Holmes and Savage best-price 10/1 to be the next king of the jungle.
TOWIE’s Jess Wright has hinted she’ll be on the programme, stating that: “something really exciting’s coming up and I can’t wait to tell you”. The 31-year-old has also previously said she’d love to appear on the show. She said: “I’d absolutely do that. I think it’ll be a huge challenge for me but I’d love to do it.” You can get 33/1 on her to win the series.
Former world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury is one of the more high profile names to have been linked to the show. However given Fury’s well-documented mental health problems, this would be particularly surprising. He is best-price 17/1 to win this year.
Acting UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, has revealed he is in talks with producers following suggestions that he has been offered £750,000 to go on the show. It would be fascinating to see how campmates and the public take to him if he takes the plunge. His price ranges from 11/2 to as long as 30/1. Another controversial figure linked to the camp is Michael Jackson’s former doctor Conrad Murray. His publicist Max Markson has confirmed that Murray is in negotiations with ITV and you can get 40/1 on him going all the way.
