The I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here final takes place on Sunday, December 9 when one celebrity will be named king or queen of the jungle. Last night (Thursday) saw Nick Knowles make his departure from the camp. Now only five celebrities remain in the Australian jungle.
Still left in the jungle are Harry, Fleur East, James McVey, Emily Atack and John Barrowman.
Favourite to win is Harry, with Ladbrokes placing odds at 1/3 that the football manager is crowned king of the jungle.
Next is Emily at 6/1, James and John both at 12/1 and Fleur at 14/1.
Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica Bridge said: “Harry’s entering the final straight and it’s going to take an almighty upset to see him pipped at the post on Sunday evening.”
How much has Harry Redknapp been paid to take part in I’m a Celebrity?
This year’s I’m a Celebrity broke records as it was announced that Noel Edmonds had been paid a staggering £600,000 for appearing on the ITV reality show.
Despite being a late arrival and the first to be voted off, the Deal or No Deal host took away the most money for his time on the show.
However, Noel’s fee was closely followed by that of Harry Redknapp’s with the Sun reporting he has been paid £500,000 for his stint in the jungle.
Harry, 71, has taken to jungle life well, although his main complaint has been about the food.
Despite the camp winning stars to be given larger meals, the exotic meats like crocodile and wallaby have not been to the football star’s liking.
However, Harry has tried his best in the camp and in Bushtucker Trials, facing sheep brains and a mouthful of critters along with Noel Edmonds.
The pair made hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donelly gag as they had to pop fish eyes in their mouths before spitting the ‘juice’ into a glass.
The football legend has captured the hearts of the nation for the way he has spoken about his wife of more than 50 years, Sandra.
“We just get on so well, I only want to be with her,” he told his campmates.
He continued on the ITV reality series: “I can never wait to see her.”
Tonight Harry will take on the Repvile Centre, which will see him crawl through spaces containing snakes, lizards and crocodiles in a bid to gain five stars for camp.
Harry will have to use a magnet to guide stars out of a container whilst avoiding the slithery critters.
I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
