I'm A Celebrity 2022: Lioness Scott on track for glory

Only four more episodes remain in this year's series of 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!' and there are six celebrities left to battle it out to become King or Queen of the Jungle.

As Sunday's final edges closer, we take a close look at which celebrity could come out on top this weekend.

What: I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2022

Where: Australia

When: Sunday 6th November 2022 - Sunday 27th November 2022

How to watch: ITV1

Odds: Jill Scott 8/15, Owen Warner 7/2, Mike Tindall 6/1, Matthew Hancock 10/1, Seann Walsh 66/1, Chris Moyles 150/1

Comedian Babatunde Aleshe the latest to leave

Babatunde Aleshe became the fifth celebrity to leave the camp in Wednesday night's episode of I'm A Celebrity, leaving behind six campmates to battle it out for glory.

For many, Aleshe's exit will have come as a surprise with the comedian and actor having captured the heart of the camp with his humour, energy and quick turns of phrase.

Seann Walsh was the other celebrity to hear the dreaded words 'it might be you' from presenters Ant and Dec on Wednesday and the stand-up comedian and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant is out to 66/1 to win the series.

Euro winner Scott the one to beat

Jill Scott is the only remaining female celebrity on this year's series of I'm A Celebrity, but the retired Lioness is the favourite to go the distance at 8/15.

Coming into this year's series Scott looked a decent bet to come out on top, having been part of the feel-good factor created by England's triumph at Women's Euro 2020 earlier in the year.

And since the series began, her popularity has only grown.

On Wednesday night, Scott took on the latest Bushtucker Trial, which had a 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' theme to it and saw the former Everton and Manchester City midfielder donning a white bonnet and petticoats.

Scott's quips are sure to have drawn a few laughs from the viewers and her haul of seven stars emphasised her winning mentality.

It would be a shock if she were not to make the final and she now appears to be the most likely winner, but the value in backing her to win has gone.

Charismatic Warner could offer value

According to the betting, Scott's closest competitor for the I'm A Celebrity crown is likeable actor Owen Warner, who is 7/2 to win the series.

Working against Warner is the fact that five of the last seven winners of the show have been female, although two of the last three champions have been soap stars which bodes well for the Hollyoaks actor.

Warner has not been afraid of putting himself forward for Bushtucker Trials this series, achieving a full house in 'Boiling Point: The Return' on Monday - a trial radio DJ Chris Moyles had previously failed to impress in.

His obsession with food has been one of the best sources of humour from this series and in Wednesday's episode, departing celebrity Aleshe pinpointed Warner as the celebrity he wants to win the series.

Warner has so far come across as brave, kind and genuine and looks a decent alternative outright selection to Scott.

Tindall another popular figure

Rugby star and Royal Family member Mike Tindall is another who seems to be a popular figure both in camp and with viewers and he is 6/1 to win the show.

Tindall has not had much screen time recently, although he did take part in the recent drinking trial 'Speak Uneasy' with Scott and seems to have assumed the role of camp father in the jungle.

It is harder to get behind the 6/1 on offer for Tindall but one way to bet on the outright market could be to back the gender of the winner to be male, essentially laying favourite Scott.

Politician Hancock surprises a few

It came as little surprise to see Conservative MP Matt Hancock voted for a number of Bushtucker Trials shortly after he entered the jungle but the fact he is still in the camp has raised a few eyebrows.

Hancock's initial arrival ruffled a few feathers in camp and drew criticism from the outside but he has managed to make the top six and it is genuinely difficult to call how far he will go.

Hancock is yet to hear the words 'it might be you' since the elimination vote has come into play and he is only 10/1 to pull off a shock victory in this year's series.

The popularity of Scott and Warner means that is unlikely and there is little value in backing him to go the distance but punters might want to consider a small bet on the West Suffolk MP to make the top three at 6/4 ahead of Tindall.
