One of the contestants on I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is odd-ons favourite to win the show, which kicks off tonight on ITV in the Kruger National Park
I'm A Celebrity…South Africa has already crowned its winner – according to the bookies.
The show kicks off tonight on ITV and cricketer Phil Tufnell, 56, is favourite to be named the series' 'legend'.
Tuffers won the show in Australia in 2003 and is now 4/1 to repeat the feat, according to Ladbrokes.
Jessica O'Reilly of the betting firm said: "Tuffers was a firm fan favourite back in the day which easily makes him the clear front runner for glory in South Africa."
She added: "However, with the likes of Joe Swash and Georgia Toffolo rumoured to be joining the camp his position at the top of the I'm A Celebrity betting may not last for too long."
Next in line for legend status is Happy Monday's star, Shaun Ryder. He has odds of 8/1 and may pip Phil to the post.
Also in the running to be crowed the champion are Carol Vorderman at 10/1, Jordan Banjo (16/1) and Amir Khan (20/1).
However, one contestant who appears to have no chance of the winning is former royal butler Paul Burrell.
The former servant to Princess Diana seems to be way out with odds of just 50/1.
Paul is seen screaming in first-look shots of the series, which kicks off tonight.
The ITV show sees the return of some of the most memorable campmates and it starts with challenges to win food for camp before they get there.
Janice Dickinson, Paul and Shaun take on the Trees of Torment Challenge – a new hell hole-style trial on water.
The Happy Mondays star, 60, is left chuckling at the former butler, who squeals his way through the trial – like he did the last time he was in the jungle.
Shaun jokes: "You need your fingers Paul."
Next up, after flying in via helicopter Phil, Helen Flanagan and Fatima Whitbread get to try something new called Newton’s Cradle – the hardest challenge of the three.
They are on suspended balls 2000 feet above the ground, which they have to jump to grab a giant star.
Speaking about the contestants as they arrived at the Kruger National Park, Shaun muses: "Seems a really, really good bunch of people. Dead natural, normal and down to earth. You know, they don't seem to be any k***heads."
I'm A Celebrity starts tonight on ITV and ITVX at 9pm
