Preview and guide to 2016 I’m A Celebrity odds
It is jungle time again and Scarlett Moffatt from Gogglebox looks a worthy clear favourite in the I’m A Celebrity odds, writes Fiora. The likeable 26-year-old has natural humour and a talent for one-liners that has helped her to gain a larger following on Twitter than any of her rivals. The current Queen of the Jungle Vicky Pattison thinks that she should do well.
Scarlett provided plenty of entertainment from day one. A sinking canoe was always going to be a challenge as her only experience of water borne craft was a pedalo and she cannot swim. She has been watching I’m A Celebrity since she was ten and, having turned down Strictly Come Dancing recently, let it be known that she would love to appear on the show. She is scared of everything but is ultra competitive and obviously knows how to get what she wants.
She was shocked to discover that there was no flush or toilet paper in the dunny and that the night time jungle noises were real rather than sound effects manufactured by a production team. Her determination in the first team effort to gain stars for food suggests that she has realised that pizzas are not secretly supplied off camera. She looks to be the one they all have to beat.
The 69-year-old actor Larry Lamb from EastEnders and Gavin & Stacey became the second favourite in the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here betting after the opening show and is likely to do well. He said before the start that he was practical and did not mind getting his hands dirty. He is another endearing character with humour and charm but admitted that he was likely to be grumpy if hungry. He will not be the only one.
Lamb immediately gained support when he heroically rescued the sinking Scarlett and has shown that he is in amazing physical shape for his age. He managed to do squats with Adam Thomas on his back after Thomas was unable to shoulder him in the same exercise. Act your age Larry or you might be leaving the jungle on a stretcher.
Lamb immediately became a benign father figure to the younger men in the camp and is liked so much by everyone that his phenomenal snoring is yet to be mentioned. The viewers like him too – he was voted the first president of the camp.
Carol Vorderman was allegedly one of the most expensive celebrities to lure into the jungle but is not fancied to be the last to leave it. The 55-year-old former Countdown queen knows how to end up with a decent number (reputedly charging £200K) but her initial insistence that she was ‘hard core’ was not exactly attractive.
Her performance when ‘walking the plank’ from the top of a 300ft tall building was impressive, especially when it started wobbling dramatically in the wind. You have to admire her ability to guess when a minute has passed in such a precarious position. She was only a second out and won the challenge.
Carol was in the first group of celebrities to arrive at camp and she showed the completely hopeless chaps how to start a fire. She admits that she hates people who moan. It may not be long before her campmates are moaning about her. She has some enviable attributes but entertainment value is not one of them and she appears to have as much humour as a calculator. She was heard chatting to a toad on the first night, was it an attempt to gain air time?
Another powerful woman is the gold medal winning hockey player Sam Quek. She initially described herself as easy-going but stubborn and admitted that she could probably get girly and screechy. She was hoping that sheer determination would enable her to succeed if others are depending on her.
Sam’s first bush tucker trial performance suggested that she is right about that but this focused, rather serious Olympian probably lacks the same level of talent for engaging the all important viewer vote.
The former Strictly Come Dancing pro Ola Jordan is considered a no-hoper at 40/1 in the early I’m A Celebrity odds. We can rely on her to showcase her obvious physical assets but the personality department may be less generously endowed. Ola left Strictly last year having been booted off with her untalented partner in the first elimination.
She is a shrewd operator who claimed the glitterball with the BBC’s Chris Hollins in 2009. Polish-born Ola is a tough cookie but she may struggle as she is going to have difficulty following conversations featuring strong regional accents.
TV presenter and one time model Lisa Snowdon did well on Strictly, finishing third in 2008 but looks unlikely to get that close to winning the jungle crown. She thinks that she will become ‘a complete cow’ if she is hungry and has failed to gain much air time in the presence of louder personalities. Her initial position as a 50/1 outsider of the field in the betting seems to be merited. She has yet to garner much public support if her position in the ‘vote for president’ is any indicator.
Diversity dance troupe member Jordan Banjo was at the wrong end of the line in the vote for president too but he has made more of an impact. He is so ridiculously tall that you cannot miss him. He was worried that he looked like a waiter in his black shirt and trousers in the opening show but he loved the helicopter’s ‘sick’ descent into the jungle.
Banjo is refreshingly humble, admitting that he is scared of everything and is so well looked after by his mum that he cannot even make toast. He even volunteered for ‘dunny duty’ on arrival as he felt incapable of doing anything else. He seems a decent human being and may well gain a significant following if he stays in long enough for his personality to emerge.
Emmerdale and Waterloo Road actor Adam Thomas failed to shoulder Larry Lamb but looks a fairly strong competitor. Before things got underway he admitted that he likes to think that he is a nice guy but was worried about his fear of spiders.
Thomas seemed to have nerves of steel when walking the plank but is not going to make great viewing if he faces other challenges in such a stoical fashion. Genuinely good guys tend to do well and he is not without hope of lifting the jungle crown, he was third in the vote for president.
Joel Dommett the stand up comedian is another celeb offered at single figure odds in the early I’m A Celebrity betting market. He likes to think that he’s a pragmatic people person. He once painted a picture with an unmentionable part of his anatomy in a documentary that featured an extremely eccentric artist who used the same method rather than a brush.
Dommett was super slow on the plank leaving Carol time to observe quietly that he was ‘properly scared of heights’. Ant and Dec even admitted that they didn’t think he was going to make it. The ability to overcome fear is a great attribute but there is something worrying about a man who has the value of pi to 100 decimal places tattooed on his arm. He has been praised for his ripped body but is he too weird to do well here?
Former top class footballer Wayne Bridge is definitely not weird but seems to be a bit of a wuss and is priced like one at 33/1 in the jungle betting odds. A stay at home dad since he quit football two years ago, Bridge said he is very determined, very competitive but very, very scared of bush tucker trials. He admitted that he was likely to scream like a girl.
Wayne confessed that he was ‘all over the place’ when faced with the challenge of letting off a flare after judging 60 seconds of tandem sky diving had passed but said he really enjoyed it afterwards. He estimated the time well and won the challenge. Having landed in the jungle the fear factor seems to have kicked in. He does not like doing anything on his own because he is so terrified. He is already missing his children and looks to be the most likely capitulation candidate if things do not go well for him. If he conquers his fears the public will probably love him for it.
