With this year’s instalment of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! taking place in an old Welsh castle rather than the Australian jungle, it’s ghosts and grim weather rather than snakes and Witchetty grubs that look set to push the celebs out of their comfort zones.
The show gets underway this Sunday and we’ve been through this series’ runners and riders.
Radio 1 listeners will be tuning into this year’s series to follow presenter Jordan North, who has been backed into favourite at 3/1.
Jordan will also be catching up with an old colleague, Victoria Derbyshire, whom he used to work with at BBC Radio 5 Live.
From being Pontins Bluecoat to pulling pints in the Queen Vic, ITV producers will be hoping the popular entertainer is good value, and so will the punters who are backing one of the favourites for this year’s show at 3/1.
Giovanna Fletcher could be the one to play the mummy figure in camp this year.
The parenting guru may be best known for presenting The Baby Club at home and is a 4/1-shot to warm the hearts of a nation and be crowned queen of the castle.
I’m A Celeb can become a game of attrition and that may suit distance runner Mo Farah, who is one of the more favoured celebs in the betting at 11/2.
Sir Mo will be hoping this is a marathon not a sprint as he seeks to add ‘King of the Jungle’ to his plethora of Olympic titles.
Bolton boy Vernon Kay should add some energy to the camp and is another quietly-fancied contender at 15/2.
As a presenter of several popular celebrity and TV gameshows over the years, Kay will hopefully have a few good stories to tell around the fire.
Strictly pro and brother of Love Island’s Curtis, AJ Pritchard is an interesting contender for the I’m A Celeb crown.
The twinkle-toed dancer is available at 10/1.
Jessica Plummer is back from the dead!
After a year-and-a-half on Albert Square, the Eastenders actress was killed off in September and now lines up for I’m A Celeb at 12/1.
Grimsby-born Paralympic gold medallist Hollie Arnold is a long-shot at 20/1.
Can the four-time javelin world champion add an I’m A Celeb crown to her mantelpiece?
Legendary Corrie landlady Beverley Callard, AKA Liz McDonald, looks to be one of the show’s outsider’s at 33/1.
The set of Coronation Street may only be an hour or so down the road from Gwrych Castle in Conwy, but she’s not fancied to make it her home for too long.
Well-known TV journalist Victoria Derbyshire will enter camp as one of the outsiders at 40/1.
The award-winning presenter is clearly good in front of the camera, but what’s she like when the red light is on 24/7?
