With just days to go before the launch of this year’s I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here!, the bookies have revealed their favourite to win.
Step forward former footballer Ian Wright.
Although he’s admitted that snakes, rats and bugs make him “squirm”, the odds of Ian being crowned King Of The Jungle are currently at 2/1.
A William Hill spokesperson said: “Ian Wright is the standout favourite, he was always calm and composed in front of goal and we expect him to be the same here.”
Ian said football manager Harry Redknapp, who won last year’s series, inspired him to do the show.
“Harry and I play golf together and we spoke about it. He had a really great time, it was a fantastic thing for him to do and he is still talking about it to this day!” he said.

Ian is followed by Capital Breakfast DJ Roman Kemp at 9/2 – despite a recent racism scandal – and rugby ace James Haskell at 5/1.
Caitlyn Jenner comes next with odds of 7/1.
Despite appearing on the American version of the show as Bruce 16 years ago, the William Hill spokesperson added: “Big-money signing Caitlyn Jenner could be the first to walk.”
RakSu’s Myles Stephenson has odds of 8/1, while bookies think it’s unlikely former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle will be named Queen Of The Jungle with odds of 9/1.
She said: “I have no jungle experience and I can’t even imagine myself being in it.”
Trailing behind are Jacqueline Jossa and Good Morning Britain‘s Kate Garraway at 12/1 and DJ Adele Roberts and comedian Andrew Maxwell at 16/1.
The stars are now all in Australia ready to enter the jungle, having posed for their official pictures.
