Earlier this week, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! contestants returned to Gwrych Castle after the set took a beating by Storm Arwen. The campmates were put into solitary isolation until members of the production team were able to fix the damage. Shortly after the celebrities reentered camp,  bookies wasted no time in speculating who would be crowned this year’s winner. Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson, who had been set to win according to Ladbrokes, was dealt a huge blow after one contestant surpassed the soap-star’s winning position.

Former footballer, David Ginola has been tipped as the most popular campmate, according to punters, placing the French football pundit into the top spot with his odds at 7/4.

According to the latest figures from Ladbrokes, soap legend Simon had been ranked as the second favourite in the competition at 3/1.

But the Steve McDonald actor was dealt a crushing blow after being downgraded from “firm favourite” last week.

Slightly lower on the bookmaker’s ranks, Emmerdale actor Danny Miller and singer turned Loose Women panellist Frankie Bridge are equalizing at (5/1) odds

BBC Radio 1 Xtra DJ Snoochie Shy has been given odds of 10/1 and is listed above Adam Woodyatt, who was a latecomer to the show, alongside Simon.

At the other end of the scale, unfortunately for Dame Arlene Phillips, her chances of taking the winning title is looking unlikely.

The former Strictly Come Dancing judge is predicted as the first celebrity to be eliminated with her at odds 5/4.

Closest to Arlene in the betting for the boot, are both Kadeena Cox (4/1) and Naughty Boy (11/2).

The pair could have ruffled feathers amongst ITV viewers following their latest clash in camp over an oxtail.

Meanwhile, BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin could face the public vote with her elimination odds at 14/1 placing her beneath Matty Lee whose odds of elimination are at 8/1.

It’s not yet been confirmed when the first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! elimination will take place, however, it has taken place on Day 13 in previous years.

The celebrities have all already left the castle however, after they were forced to evacuate after Storm Arwen wreaked havoc across the country at the weekend.

ITV producers had no option but to take the show off the air for the first time in 18 years until repairs on set were complete.

It’s unknown whether the unfortunate event caused delays for the elimination date. 

In recent episodes, David and Danny were voted to be Lords of the Castle by the public.

They took over the roles from Simon and Adam, who’d been prevented from doing any chores around the camp following their arrival.

In Thursday night’s episode, Naughty Boy and Frankie will take on the next Bushtucker Trial.

A preview clip has shown Frankie trying to down a disgusting liquid in order to win a star, and meal, for the camp. 

However, it doesn’t seem like an easy task as she gags and almost throws up the drink.

Can they bring back enough stars to provide a good meal for camp?

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