I don't know about you but I think the general public looks forward to the bushtucker trials on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here more than any other part of the shows, especially the eating trials.

We often see one celebrity chosen consistently for the first few. Arguably due to dislike, or hopefully more for the reaction we might get from them facing their fears.

This year, there is an outstanding favourite with betting sites to both face the first trial and have to complete the most in the quest for stars which turn into meals for the camp.


The TV presenter has been installed as a short-priced favourite with a 40% chance of being the first to face a trial
