I’m A Celebrity 2019: Cliff Parisi ‘odds-on favourite’ to leave the Jungle on Monday night

There was no Dingo Dollar challenge on Sunday night’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! as the show’s hosted area in Australia faced its worst storm for 20 years.

Camp-mates were forced to take shelter with their belongings as the rain poured heavily down on camp.

Perhaps the lack of a Dingo Dollar challenge may have improved their mood, as Jacqueline Jossa led a chorus of ‘Singing In The Rain’.

On Saturday’s show, James Haskell had caused tension in the camp by once again criticising the “dithering” of his camp-mates when taking their time to answer the question to the Dingo Dollar challenge.

On Sunday night, meanwhile, it was Ian Wright who took it upon himself to reclaim the angry man role in camp, as he punched a wall in frustration at running out of time in his Bushtucker Trial.

Presenter Ant McPartlin joked that MBE, which Wright has been honoured with, must stand for ‘Moans Before Everything’.

Named ‘The Hellavator,’ the former footballer went down levels in an elevator – which, as expected, dropped a series of bugs onto his head while he waited to enter the next level – and had to untie knots nearby snakes, spiders, a crocodile, crabs and other animals to claim the stars.

The knots did look particularly tricky, and it was a star placed at the bottom of a filthy toilet which proved too challenging for Wright to untie, causing him to lose his cool.

But he still gained a respectable seven stars to rapturous applause from his camp-mates.

Wright was less impressed. He bemoaned to Andrew Maxwell, who last night became the second contestant to be voted off this year’s series, that he couldn’t face doing any more trials.

He may be in luck as it’s likely that the rest of this final week will only have voting to determine who stays, meaning the camp can rotate between them who faces the trials.

Former Eastenders star Cliff Parisi is once again the clear favourite to leave tonight – should there be a vote as expected – at an odds-on 8/11.

Haskell’s and Wright’s angry antics appear to be counting against them as they are 11/4 and 8/1 respectively to be next to leave the show.

In terms of winning the show, it looks to be a two-horse race between Andrew Whyment and Roman Kemp at 5/4 and 7/4 respectively.

But much can change in a week!
