Eric Bristow has revealed he put a £20,000 bet on himself to make the final six of I'm A Celebrity 2012.
Speaking after Helen's exit, Eric claimed he wasn't surprised the Corrie beauty had left.
“She was shocked” said Eric. “I wasn’t shocked. It’s getting good now. Only six left and all six are fighters now.”
And as Helen walked over the bridge, the campmates speculated why she’d been voted off. “I thought the fake tan brigade would be phoning in their droves. Maybe she peaked too soon. Maybe she was overexposed” said David.
Eric revealed that he would be in the money if he wasn’t voted out today. “There’s a lot of money on today. I told all the boys to whack the bookies that I’ll get half way, so if I go out today, I’ll lose the lot. It’s worth 70 thousand pounds today. 20 thousand to win 50 thousand.”
“Charlie was shocked. “We did yeah. Three of us, don’t worry” explained Eric.
Later Rosemary - who was eliminated ahead of Eric last night - said, “Oh My God, he’s actually put a bet on. He’s put a very large bet on. If he get’s through to the last six, he’s on a 50 thousand pound winner. Can you believe it?”
