Victoria Derbyshire, Shane Richie and AJ Pritchard are some of the famous faces who will be joining this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! As soon as the line-up was announced, speculation over who will be crowned King or Queen of the Castle was rife. However, has the identity of the first celebrity to be booted out of the series been revealed?

Bookmakers have been receiving a flurry of bets on who will the series scattered across the 10 celebrities. 

Only 19 bets had been placed with Ladbrokes on Victoria winning the show as of November 12. 

The BBC journalist is a 25/1 outsider for the winner’s crown so it looks like she may get the least amount of support in the first public vote.

She is the favourite to be booted out of the competition first at 3/1.

Ladbrokes’ Jessica O’Reilly said: “It looks like Victoria’s stint on ITV will be short-lived and she will be back presenting on the BBC soon enough, as unfortunately, it’s more likely she’s evicted first than emerges as the 2020 champion.”

At the other end of the scale, Radio 1 DJ Jordan North is the favourite to win the series. 

Jordan, Shane and Sir Mo Farah are all battling it out at the top of the latest betting. 

All three I’m A Celebrity stars are priced at 4/1 to be crowned King of the Jungle.

Giovanna Fletcher is close behind at 5/1 while Vernon Kay sits behind her at 6/1.

“The supply teacher is all the rage with punters, and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Jordan emerges as the clear favourite ahead of the series opener on Sunday evening,” Jessica added. 

Despite former EastEnders star Shane finding himself at the top of betting, son Shane Nolan Jnr admitted he’s unsure his father will win. 

During a virtual appearance on This Morning, Shane discussed the likelihood of his father succeeding on the show with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

“I’ve been asking him and ringing him saying, ‘Dad, what are you doing for work?’ Do you know what I mean? 

“I didn’t know what he was up to, and then he dropped this bombshell! And I was a bit gobsmacked. Genuinely, genuinely gobsmacked.”

Ruth pointed out his father was tipped to win but Shane explained he wanted to wait before betting on him. 

“I know, I think I might lump on a bit later when it goes to sixth or seventh away. It’s a bit short at the minute,” he admitted.


“We know your dad very well,” Eamonn continued. “He’s a joker. What side of him do you think we’ll see that people don’t know about?”

“You don’t get to see him when he’s hungry, tired, it’s going to be cold this year,” Shane replied.

“He did a show called 71 Degrees North so I think he’s a bit more prepared for the cold.”

Shane Jnr was referring to ITV’s 71 Degrees North set in Norway which saw his father embrace the Scandinavian chill. 

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Sunday on ITV at 9pm.
