I'm A Celebrity: Joey Essex Favourite To Win
Towie star on odds of just 13/8 to become king of the jungle...
Joey Essex has emerged as the bookies' favourite to win this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
The star of The Only Way Is Essex is being offered on odds of 13/8, despite the show not having begun yet.
Snooker legend Steve Davis is second favourite on 11/2 and Kian Egan is in third spot on 8/1.
Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington and The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air star Alfonso Ribeiro are both behind him on 10/1.
The best odds are available on Princess Diana's dress designer David Emanuel - who was available at 75/1 at the time of writing.
But whoever ends up winning is unlikely to have to eat the show's famous witchetty grubs - because the "bushtucker" dish has been taken off the menu according to The Mirror.
The paper claims that a national shortage of the larvae has forced producers to find alternatively unappetising delicacies for the contestants.
Series producer Tom Gould said: "There is an Australia-wide shortage of witchetty grubs because of the weather.
"It has been too wet for them, so they haven't hatched this year. We usually get them from Tasmania. We've tried to source them from every possible state – but there are none."
The show begins on ITV1 at 9pm on Sunday night.
Joey Essex has promised some topless action in the jungle.
