The news series of I’m A Celeb is now in full swing!
Having taken part in a number of Bushtucker Trials this week, the celebrities have been split into two camps, and will go head-to-head again in the upcoming challenges.
Tensions this week have risen between the two camps, with some celebs being picked for the gruelling trials more than others. Naughty Boy’s confidence begins to crack after a failed challenge and a lost trial, while the main camp have been celebrating more of the victories so far.
What are the odds for I’m A Celebrity 2021?
David Ginola, the former France football international, has seen his fair share of challenges and trials this week. His challenge alongside Naughty Boy, involving him being stuck in a water-filling cage, resulted in a loss, however, the ex-Spurs star remains popular with the public and has odds of 9/4 for victory – making him the current favourite for glory.
New campmate Simon Gregson of Coronation Street fame is the next in line in the outright winner market with odds of 5/2. He appeared on Thursday night’s show as Lord Simon, taking part in a five-round trial to earn the campmates’ respect and their dinner. Simon also has odds of 9/1 in the most public voted Bucktucker trials market – placing him fourth in the betting.
The Saturdays singer and Loose Women panellist, Frankie Bridge, is third favourite to win the show with odds of 10/3. Frankie was part of the Turrets of Terror challenge this week against Richard Madeley, where they were faced with three floors of challenges and kept company by falling cockroaches, maggots, crickets and mealworms, with Frankie winning her tower the key to the castle. However, despite working alongside Naughty Boy successfully in a challenge, the two had a slight confrontation over dinner one evening. Frankie has odds of 11/1 in the most public voted Bucktucker trials market.
Snoochie Shy this week took part in the Dreaded Dinner trial, while she also animatedly took on the Treacherous Traps challenge alongside Naughty Boy, which she won. Odds of Snoochie winning the show are 8/1, while she is 4/1 in the most public voted Bucktucker trials market – making her third favourite for the latter.
EastEnders’ Adam Woodyatt entered the camp this week, joined Simon as Lords of the Castle. The 53-year-old actor also has odds of 8/1 for winning the series, and performed well in the gruesome five-round trial upon his arrival. Unlikely to be the next to be eliminated, Adam has odds of 16/1 in this particular market.
Danny Miller, best known for playing Aaron Dingle in Emmerdale, took part in the Dreaded Dinner trial alongside Snoochie Shy, proceeding to vomit throughout the challenge. He’s 10/1 to be crowned king of the castle and is also second favourite in the most public voted Bucktucker trials market at 2/1.
Louise Minchin, meanwhile, has odds of 22/1 for winning the show. The former BBC Breakfast presenter won a challenge after her performance in Walk the Plank – in which she was suspended hundreds of feet in the air – where she beat Danny. Louise has odds of 17/2 to be eliminated next.
Music producer Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, leads the betting in the most public voted Bucktucker trials market with odds of 15/8. He has taken part in numerous challenges already, including the Treacherous Traps – losing to Snoochie Shy. His odds of being eliminated first from the show next are 5/1 while his odds to win the series are 28/1.
Next in line in the betting for outright winner of the show is Matty Lee, who is priced at 40/1 for glory. So far Matty, Tom Daley’s diving partner, hasn’t taken part in a Bushtucker trial and has remained popular among the campmates, and clearly the public. However, Matty is third favourite in the next elimination market with odds of 9/2.
Another sporting star to have signed up for the show is Kadeena Cox (also 40/1). The Paralympian narrowly missed out on being voted in by the public for the Creepy Closets trial and is yet to take part in a challenge. Kadeena’s odds to be the next eliminated are 10/3, making her second favourite in this market.
Sitting at the bottom of the betting to win the show is Arlene Phillips at 100/1. The oldest ever contestant has, so far, been saved by the public from competing in the trials, however, at 6/4 she is the favourite to be eliminated from the show next.
Good Morning Britain presenter Richard Madeley has left the show due to illness.
