One to Watch: the stars in the jungle series returns tonight.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is back which can mean only one thing… the time has come for a brand new cast of celebrities to head down under and battle it out in TV’s toughest entertainment challenge with Ant and Dec back down under to present all the big stories live from the Jungle every night.
Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, our celebrity campers will spend up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian Jungle, with a whole host of brand new nasty surprises created just for them.
The ten celebrities heading into the Jungle for the new series are Jennie McAlpine, Dennis Wise, Rebekah Vardy, Jack Maynard, Shappi Khorsandi, Amir Khan, Stanley Johnson, Vanessa White, Jamie Lomas and Georgia “Toff” Toffolo.
Last year’s highlights included Carol Vorderman walking a plank over 300ft high in the air, Jordan Banjo and Larry Lamb’s unlikely friendship, Adam Thomas’s fear of spiders and Scarlett Moffatt being crowned Queen of the Jungle.
This years well-known faces and those we’re left wondering ‘who the heck are they?’ will all face the legendary Jungle camp and find themselves cut off from the outside world praying the public doesn’t send them straight into a dreaded Bushtucker Trial.
William Hill noted on Friday (17th November) that Jennie McAlpine was a popular choice for winning the show with the bookies. The Corrie actress is 7/2 ahead of Jamie Lomas at 5/1 and Jack Maynard at 11/2.
The betting can often be a good indicator of who will do well in the show with Scarlett Moffat going off as the 13/8 favourite just before last years series started, however the year before, eventual winner Vicky Pattison, was a 12/1 outsider.
“Most of the early cash has been for Jennie as people are trying to steal a march on the bookies. Sometimes the early gambles prove correct but they can just as easily be a shot in the dark.” – William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly
I’m A Celebrity winner: 7/2 Jennie McAlpine; 5/1 Jamie Lomas; 11/2 Jack Maynard; 7/1 Stanley Johnson; 9/1 Georgia Toffolo; 10/1 Shappi Khorsandi; 12/1 Dennis Wise; 12/1 Amir Khan; 14/1 Vanessa White; 14/1 Rebekah Vardy.
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is supporting Make a Wish UK with 15p from every phone vote being donated to the charity. The show returns to ITV, STV and UTV tonight, November 19th, from 9pm. The ‘Extra Camp’ show arrives an hour later over on ITV2.
