Claire Taylor gives us the run down on the remaining I'm a Celebrity... contestants, and fancies one man to be crowned King of the Jungle ahead of Sunday's final...

"Carl Fogarty (3.55/2) could well be our winner. He's down to earth, friendly, speaks his mind, and enjoys a joke or two. Carl has been true to himself from the day he entered the jungle, and he's done extremely well when faced with bushtucker trials, feeding his fellow camp mates and earning them rewards."

The end of series 14 is almost upon us. And we've seen jungle highs and lows, back door exits, and a surprise elimination of early show favourite Jimmy Bullard along the way.

I see a close competition ahead of the final night, and we may just be in for a shock winner this year. We saw in previous years the overall victor can be decided on the final evening's episode, with many viewers only tuning in to see who takes the jungle crown, and voting on impulse when the highlights are shown.

Jake Quickenden (2.265/4) is just edging the way in the market, and I would avoid this selection for the moment. Jake was a replacement in the show, for Craig Charles, who had to leave early due a family bereavement, and he quickly became popular (especially with the ladies), but he knows it. There is a fine line between arrogance and confidence and I believe Jake thinks he may have already won the show. I think he plays up for the cameras, and I can see through his bravado. He'll probably finish in the top 3, but I can't see him winning.

Carl Fogarty (3.55/2) could well be our winner. He's down to earth, friendly, speaks his mind, and enjoys a joke or two. Carl has been true to himself from the day he entered the jungle, and he's done extremely well when faced with bushtucker trials, feeding his fellow camp mates and earning them rewards. His 'Bromance' with Jimmy has been an entertaining watch, and, along with the competitive streak he has, I make Carl a very worthy winner overall.

Melanie Sykes (7.87/1) should achieve a top three place. Mel is the alpha female of the group and she opened up quite strongly, however the jungle life has started to drag her down over this final week. I still feel that Mel will prove popular with both male and female viewers though and she has quite a large fan base which could be worth noting, too. Her recent clash with the eliminnted Vicki may have damaged her chances of actually winning though, I think Mel will take third place. 

Tinchy Stryder (12.5) has quietly made his way into the final week, as I thought he would. Tinchy is another that has been the same throughout the entire show, but he may have been just a touch too quiet to actually win. He formed a strong, surprising bond with the evicted Michael Buerk, but without him may find these final days a touch tougher. 

Latecomer Edwina Currie (17.016/1) has been an interesting contestant. The former MP will almost certainly not make the top three, I just don't feel the public will feel the need to vote for her. Although she has proved to be a little bit of a cougar recently, it won't be enough for her to win.

Finally we have Kendra Wilkinson (60.059/1). She has been the most talked about contestant on this year's show, but again Kendra will not win. She shouldn't make the final night; the public just don't seem to like her enough.
