I’m a Celebrity Overview

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here

Every year, a group of celebrities are flown over to Australia to live in a jungle camp for a few weeks. While living on meagre rations, the famous faces’ exploits and everyday actions are captured on TV and broadcast as part of a certain show called I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

This reality TV show just happens to be one of the biggest shows on UK television right now. It’s certainly one of the biggest successes for parent channel ITV. In fact its most recent series, which aired from November to December 2018, earned the show its highest ratings ever, with an average of twelve million people watching.

After launching on Sunday 17 November, the show will air every night at 9.00pm on ITV, with the most likely date for the finale on Sunday 8 December.

The show is a staple of British TV. It’s a huge hit not only thanks to the humorous presenting duo Ant and Dec but also thanks to the diverse line-up of celebrities that take part, from the well-known faces to the barely recognisable has-beens and the keen wannabes.

Then, of course, there’s what the celebrities get up to in the jungle. For the celebrities taking part, it isn’t just a walk a park. There are fearful Bushtucker Trials to take part in to win meals for camp – these infamous trials are for many the highlight of the show and have helped cement its reputation as one of the most entertaining shows on TV. After all, who doesn’t want to see celebrities covered in insects and having to eat grotesque animal parts?

If you’re looking to bet on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, you’ll be pleased to learn that there’s no shortage of bets you can place. With each new series, there’s a host of new famous faces ready to rough it in the jungle and more than enough bets to keep you busy!

How to Bet on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

One of the great things about a show like I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is that there are all sorts of betting options available.

1 First of all, there’s betting on who’s going to be heading into the jungle. Throughout the year, you’ll see an occasional article listing a few celebrities rumoured to be taking part in the upcoming series.

2 Then, as autumn comes around, speculation as to who the contestants are really starting to ramp up in the media. Even before ITV officially announces the line-up for the upcoming series, if you read enough online and look at the odds, you can make a decent guess as to who’ll be taking part.

3 Even before the show starts, betting for the winner opens up. The odds given usually factor things such as how well known the contestant is, how relevant they are, whether they’ve been in the news recently, how big their social media following is and how good of a reputation they have, among other things.

Watch out: During the course of the show, the odds for the winner can change quite significantly. Someone who wasn’t that well known can win people over with their personality and win the show, while someone who’s got a huge following on entering the show may not make good TV and win over the viewers too much.

4 As well as betting on the winner, you have the opportunity to bet on who’s getting evicted. After two weeks or so, daily evictions start taking place. The public vote for who they’d like to stay in the camp and whoever receives the lowest number of votes is sent home – actually, they’re sent to a luxury hotel to stay in until the end of the show!

5 Then, of course, there’s the Bushtucker Trials. These are without a doubt the highlight of the show. Each Bushtucker Trial sees one or more celebrities take on a particularly challenging task to win meals for themselves and their fellow celebrities. Some are more physical in nature, while others are downright terrifying. These trials are famous in their own right.

To win meals for camp, celebrities have eaten kangaroo genitals, been buried alive with thousands of creepy crawlies for comfort, tackling obstacles on high wires and even burrowed their way through underground, water-filled tunnels. Most of the time, the public votes for the celebrities they want to do the trials. Whoever gets the most votes attempts the trial, which is either pre-recorded or broadcast live.

6 There may also be additional, smaller bets you can place. Some bookies let you bet on who, if any, will be the first of the celebrities to voluntarily quit the show. For the 2018 series, co-host Ant McPartlin was absent; he’d taken a year-long break from his presenting duties to attend rehab and recover from an addiction. Once it was announced he wouldn’t be co-hosting for the first time in the show’s history, betting opened up as to who his replacement would be.

Betting Tips And Strategy

Let’s talk about betting on who’s going to win the show. This is the show’s main bet and, as previously mentioned, it typically opens up before the show starts and can fluctuate quite a lot as the show progresses. So what are some tips and strategies that can help you pick out the eventual winner?

With the show having now aired eighteen series, a good strategy is to look at the list of previous winners and see if there’s any sort of pattern or common traits. Of the show’s eighteen winners, eleven have been men and seven women, so you may wish to consider betting on a male contestant for this year’s series.

Several of the more recent winners have appeared on other reality TV shows. In fact, the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth series all had ‘reality stars’ as winners: series fifteen was won by Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison; Scarlett Moffatt from Gogglebox won the sixteenth series; and Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo from Made In Chelsea was the winner for the seventeenth series. There are quite a few chart-topping singers among the list of winners: Kerry Katona (series three), Matt Willis (series six), Dougie Poynter (series eleven), Kian Egan (series thirteen).

Then there are sports figures. Several winners have been really successful sportsmen: England cricketer Phil Tufnell was victorious in series two; World Superbike race Carl ‘Foggy’ Fogarty won the fourteenth series, while football manager Harry Redknapp was the winner of the most recent series.

Having said all that, there’s no set-in-stone way of determining the winner. When ITV releases the line-up of this year’s contestants, there may well be a bookies’ favourite from the start. However, thing can change and that’s what makes betting on the show so exciting.

Some years, there’s a bookies’ favourite whose odds remain in their favour and who goes on to win the show outright. For the sixteenth series in 2016, for example, Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt was widely tipped to win from the outset.

As a show of just how popular she was, she won every single public vote to remain in the camp. You may be surprised to learn that from series fourteen onwards, the winner has topped the public vote to remain in camp every single time.

In other words, they’re pretty much been the public’s favourite right from the start and they’ve continued to appeal to the public the entire time they’ve been in the jungle. It’s worth pointing out that the results of the public votes don’t get revealed until after the winner’s been announced. So even if a contestant topped the vote every time, their odds might have gone up and down throughout time on the show.

Other years, the winner isn’t necessarily guaranteed from the get-go or even as the show gets underway. For the twelfth series in 2012, Eastenders actress Charlie Brooks was the eventual winner. However, she didn’t top the public vote to stay in camp every time.

Of the nine eviction votes prior to the final, she only came out on top twice. Fellow contestant Ashley Roberts topped the public vote no fewer than five times, yet she ended up coming in second place. Charlie won with 50.56% of the public vote, while Ashley came a very close second with 49.44% – the closest final vote in the show’s history.
