Coronation Street actor has overtaken ex-footballer in the I'm A Celebrity betting as the show enters week two. Max Liu has the latest prices...

David Ginola 4.57/2 was the early favourite but Gregson has overtaken the former-Spurs footballer in a contest that looks wide open, especially amid the added uncertainty of the weather disruption.

Simon Gregson is the new favourite to win I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here as the ITV show enters week two.

The weekend's episodes of the ITV show, filmed at Gwrych castle, Conwy, were cancelled due to Storm Arwen.

ITV said "technical difficulties caused by extreme weather" had forced them to cancel Saturday and Sunday's episodes. It was an unprecedented development in the live show's 18-year history.

Presenters Ant and Dec posted an updated on Sunday night:

As for the betting, Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald in Coronation Street, has made a big impression since going into the castle a few days ago as a late arrival.

David Ginola 4.57/2 was the early favourite but Gregson has overtaken the former-Spurs footballer in a contest that looks wide open, especially amid the added uncertainty of the weather disruption.

Popstar Frankie Bridge 5.39/2 was popular with bettors when the line-up was announced and still looks like a contender. Snoochie Shy 8.415/2 and EastEnders actor Adam Woodyatt 13.5 are also in the mix.

Arlene Phillips is the favourite in the first elimination betting, although when that happens may be affected by the storm.

It's been a rocky start to the show which last week saw Richard Madeley leave the show after feeling unwell. He said he was fine but was leaving the show because he had broken its Covid safety bubble.
