I'm A Celebrity 2018 favourites revealed as contestants are confirmed

John Barrowman I'm A Celebrity 2018

The I'm A Celebrity 2018 line up has been confirmed and the early favourites have been revealed.

John Barrowman is being tipped to be crowned the King/Queen of the I’m A Celeb jungle after the line-up was officially confirmed ahead of launch night this Sunday.

Bookmakers BoyleSports have made the actor the 3/1 favourite for the crown after bets began to pour in already for Barrowman to win.

The Inbetweeners star Emily Attack is following closely on John’s heels for the title as the 5/1 second favourite.

History is on Emily’s side after the last three winners have been female celebs, with Georgia Toff the reigning Queen of the Jungle, Scarlett Moffatt winning the year previous and Vicky Pattison taking the crown in 2015.

Harry Redknapp was initially a short 9/2 shot to win as rumours circulated suggesting he had signed up for a stint in the jungle. However since the line-up has been revealed the former football manager’s odds have been eased out to 8/1 as he is up against some stiff competition for the crown.

Also priced at 8/1 are X Factor 2014 runner-up Fleur East, The Chase’s Anne Hegarty aka The Governess and Coronation Street’s Sair Khan.

Hollyoaks’ Malique Thompson-Dywer joins presenter Nick Knowles at 11/1 whilst EastEnders star Rita Simons, who played Roxy Mitchell from 2007-2017, is the current outsider to win at 14/1.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “John Barrowman is loved by everyone and is already seeing support to take the crown after he revealed in a pre-entry interview he is aiming to be the show’s first gender-fluid winner, the King or Queen of the Jungle.”

She added “Harry Redknapp is sure to be a fan favourite, but it is a very strong line-up this year and with more celebs teased to enter later next week, the former footie manager’s odds have drifted to 8/1 from 9/2 as it’s expected to be a very competitive season.”
