After a week of camping in the castle, we’ve already had trials, terror, rumbling tummies and plenty of fun with the shower.
The I’m A Celeb contestants welcomed two new campmates on Wednesday night, Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall. Both have started off well, but will have to make more of an impact to dislodge clear favourite Jordan North.
Here’s a rundown of who’s in line to be king or queen of Gwrych Castle.
On the hunt for TV gold, viewers are sure to keep voting Jordan through to the Bushtucker Trials.
The radio DJ’s hysterics are what the viewers want to see and, currently the 6/5 favourite for victory this series, Jordan is expected to face plenty more challenges yet and go far in the competition.
Despite having shown his horror at taking part in the trials, Jordan overcame his fears on Thursday’s show to conquer a challenge all by himself to collect 12 stars – all this without having to mention his ‘Happy Place’! This, no doubt, will have warmed him to viewers even further.
Shane has had plenty of airtime and is already one of the more established faces on the show.
He adds humour to the camp and was good value in the Viper Pit trial, so it’s no surprise to see him as short as 10/3 to be crowned king of the jungle.
However, it only gets harder after the opening week and it remains to be seen whether Shane can keep up his cheer when the going gets tough and the camp gets hungry.
Easy-going Vernon, who’s drawn a bit of attention recently for his tales about Prince William and Brad Pitt, is another campmate who’s up for a laugh and tends to get a good amount of time on the camera.
Big Vern is always on hand to help pump the shower, while being voted in for his first Bushtucker Trial could be a sign that the public want to see more of him. He’s third in the betting behind Jordan and Shane at 4/1.
Best of the Rest
Coronation Street landlady Beverley Callard has had her supporters during the opening week, with her odds shortening from 16/1 to a current 12/1, while newcomers Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall (33/1) have also made good early impressions with their lying to campmates to win luxury items for everyone.
Olympic champion Mo Farah is hovering around the 9/1 mark, having been 8/1 at the start of the week, but could win some more viewers over when facing Friday’s Bushtucker Trial.
Paralympic champion Hollie Arnold could be the first to leave, having drifted out to 100/1 from a starting price of 20/1 to win the show this week, while she is the 7/4 favourite to be the first to be eliminated.
