Sam Thompson is tipped to become the 2023 King of the Jungle.
Despite being just over a week into camp life, the ‘Made In Chelsea’ star is the fan-favourite to win the show already, according to betting company, Boyle Sports.
Viewers of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ have fallen in love with Sam’s positive, affectionate, and cheerful energy, so much so they have elected him to be camp leader.
Following this, BoyleSports reported that the ‘Staying Relevant’ podcast host’s stock has risen this week and placed him at the top of the list of likely winners.
His current odds of winning the show are 6/5, with his odds of being eliminated first 125/1.
Not far behind Sam is ‘This Morning’s’ Josie Gibson who has odds of 2/1 to take the crown, however, this is a decrease from her previous odds of 6/4.
The betting company says the broadcaster’s chances of being first to be voted out of the jungle are 100/1.
Meanwhile, former ‘EastEnders’ actress, Danielle Harold, is heading in the right direction with her chances going 10/1 to 9/2.
This week, food critic Grace Dent left the jungle on medical grounds, however, the first elimination still lies ahead for the rest of the camp.
According to the odds, ‘Hollyoaks’ actor, Nick Pickard is the contestant most at risk with odds of 6/4 to be sent packing first.
On the other hand, late entry Frankie Dettori hasn’t won viewers over, meaning his chances have fallen into 9/4 from 16/1 to be sent home first.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports says the jockey will need to act fast if he wants to earn the heart of the public.
“Frankie Dettori will need to get galloping if he is to trouble the favourites, but Sam has surged into the lead with punters leaving Josie and Danielle trailing in his wake.”
