ITV I’m A Celeb – Sam Thompson and Josie Gibson joint-favourites to win hit jungle show

Sam Thompson and Josie Gibson have been named as the joint-favourites to win this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

The hit ITV show will return to our screens on 19 November as a bundle of new celebrities enter the jungle to take on some creepy challenges. This year's rumoured line-up includes a soap legend, a popstar, a controversial politician and a boxing champ.

While this year's contestants are yet to be officially announced, rumours have been circulating for weeks of the star-studded line-up. Two of these include former Made in Chelsea star, Sam and This Morning presenter, Josie who have both been tipped to take home the jungle crown.

Sam, who is now a presenter on Hits Radio UK, will reportedly head into the jungle just weeks after his girlfriend and former Love Island star, Zara McDermott competed on Strictly Come Dancing. The 31 year old is known for his humourous videos on social media and constant banter with his close pal Pete Wicks on their Staying Relevant podcast.

Josie, who is a regular presenter on the hit ITV daytime show is said to have been offered a six-figure "mega-deal" to step foot in the jungle after finding herself in a bidding war between the hit ITV show and BBC’s Strictly. Producers were reportedly so determined to sign the 38 year old up for the show that she has been offered a "mega" sum of money which is usually reserved for the biggest of stars that step foot in the jungle.

With two big and bubbly personalities reported to be entering the jungle down under, it's no wonder Betfair has predicted Sam and Josie as the joint-favourites to win. Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: "TV presenter Josie Gibson and former Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson are the 10/3 joint-favourites to win I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! with the line-up fully "confirmed".

Other stars reported to be taking part in this year's I'm A Celebrity include Jamie Lynn Spears, Marvin Humes, Danielle Harold, Nigel Farage, Tony Bellew, Nick Pickard, Fred Sirieix, Frankie Dettori, Nella Rose and Grace Dent. The Betfair spokesperson added: "Horse racing legend Frankie Dettori follows behind at 9/2 with former Boxer Tony Bellew 9/1 in the betting. Nigel Farage is arguably one of the biggest names in the series and the former politician is 14/1 to be crowned King of the Jungle."

As we wait for the new series to be aired and for the full line-up to be officially announced by ITV, here are the predictions from Betfair on who has a chance of taking home the jungle crown.

Sam Thompson, Josie Gibson: 10/3

Frankie Dettori: 9/2
