I’m A Celebrity 2019: Andrew Whyment ‘heavily backed’ to be crowned king of the jungle

Saturday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Here! featured fans’ favourite ‘Celebrity Cyclone’ Bushtucker Trial, in which the final four dress up as superheroes aiming to save the day by collecting stars for camp.

Eastenders actress Jacqueline Jossa could not contain her excitement about the prospect:

“I’m really excited about this, I never thought I’d get this far where you can actually do the cyclone,” she revealed.

“This is an iconic moment and I just can’t believe I’m here wearing this luminous orange suit.”

And so the Cyclone began!

A screaming Kate Garraway nervously went first, but the TV presenter showed remarkable resistance in face of the onrushing stream by managing to keep control of her stars in a firm squat position.

Jossa was next to meet Garraway to collect some stars off her, but she could not overpower the onrushing stream and giant balls in order gain any momentum and quickly found herself marooned to the surface.

Jossa’s stars were washed back to the starting point, but with time running out, she managed to find a sprint from no where to get back to her position.

Radio presenter Roman Kemp swiftly scampered and dodged his way to Jossa and onto his position.

Last up was the bookmakers’ favourite to win the show, Coronation Street actor Andrew Whyment, who nonchalantly strolled his way to the top – and subsequent victory for camp – not once, but twice, after a pink-coloured waterfall had knocked him back down to the bottom.

“That was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life, it was unreal,” Kemp told Ant and Dec.

It was an epic watch, too, no doubt, but perhaps even more entertaining was the incredible lizard which joined them later on in camp.

Whyment admitted he had forgotten to clear the bins the night before, with the lizard finding himself a tasty piece of kangaroo tail.

It proceeded to shock camp-mates and viewers alike by dislocating its jaw to eat the tail whole.

Garraway likened it to watching a “scene from Jurassic Park,” while Jossa described it as “ugly and hideous” but admitted she “couldn’t turn away.”

Me neither. Who needs Sir David Attenborough when you’ve got late night reality TV, eh?!

Unfortunately we said goodbye to Garraway later in the episode as it was revealed that Kemp, Jossa and Whyment would be this year’s three finalists.

Whyment is heavily backed to win the show, finding himself odds-on at 1/3 to be crowned king of the jungle on Sunday night’s final.

Jossa is 7/2, with Kemp clearly expected to finish third at 9/1.
