'I'm A Celebrity' 2015: George Shelley Named Bookies' Favourite To Win New Series

The new ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ contestants haven’t even step foot in the jungle yet, but already there is a favourite to win the new series.


Bookies have named Union J singer George Shelley as the most likely of the 10 campmates to be crowned this year’s King Of The Jungle.

Betfair currently have the former ‘X Factor’ star listed as 4/1 favourite to win, ahead of Spandau Ballet singer Tony Hadley at 11/2.

Ex-England footballer Kieron Dyer is mooted as third favourite at 6/1, followed by ‘Hollyoaks’ actress Jorgie Porter at 13/2.

At the opposite end are paranormal presenter Yvette Fielding and 'Dragons' Den' tycoon Duncan Bannatyne at 12/1, while royal biographer Lady Colin Campbell has the highest odds at 14/1.

Colm Rock from Betfair, said: “No stranger to reality TV, having first emerged on ‘X Factor’, teen heartthrob George Shelley is swinging into the jungle as 4/1 favourite having attracted plenty of support before the line-up was announced.

“Duncan Bannatyne may be one to watch at 12/1. Having hidden behind the hard-man façade on ‘Dragons Den’, we may witness a completely different side to him during the bush-tucker trials,” he added.
