Former-footballer and reality TV star the early market leaders among 11 celebs starting life in the jungle, as the 2019 edition of the show gets underway. Max Liu has the lowdown...

"Bettors think Caitlyn Jenner 5.95/1 has a decent chance. Jenner is no stranger to reality TV, having appeared in Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the American version of I'm A Celebrity.."

Ian Wright is the early 5.59/2 favourite to win I'm A Celebrity after the Arsenal legend and the nine other contestants began their stay in the jungle. How the former-footballer will take to life on the show remains to be seen but Exchange bettors think that, with his upbeat demeanour and infectious sense of humour, he could prevail where other stars fail.

Since retiring from the game in 2000, Wright has become a popular pundit, known for his lively analysis on 5Live and the Match of the Day. On entering the jungle, he said he'd discussed it with Harry Redknapp, who was crowned King of the Jungle in 2018.

Jenner rated Wright's nearest rival

Bettors also think Caitlyn Jenner 5.95/1 has a decent chance. Jenner is no stranger to reality TV, having appeared in Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the American version of I'm A Celebrity... an experience which could mean she's better prepared than others.

Another ex-athlete, rugby player James Haskell, is also 13.012/1 in the jungle, along with figures from the world of pop music, including Nadine Coyle 22.021/1 and Myles Stephenson 8.615/2, and TV, such as Kate Garraway 13.5.

The odds indicate that bettors think radio DJ Roman Kemp 8.415/2 - son of Martin - is one to watch. Still, these are early days and it would wrong to overlook anyone at this stage. Nothing can prepare you for getting back to basics, among the bugs and rodents of the jungle, so it will be fascinating to see how each contestant adapts to life there.

Adele Roberts is the early favourite to leave first, perhaps because she's only been camping once and admitted to being terrified of spiders, which makes the jungle an odd choice for the ex-Big Brother contestant.
