I’m A Celebrity 2019: James Haskell ‘heavy favourite’ to be fourth eliminated




Monday night was certainly an action-packed episode of this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

We saw Caitlyn Jenner cry, Cliff Parisi constantly cracking jokes, and 28-year-old Myles Stephenson admit 52-year-old Kate Garraway is one of his main “TV crushes.”

Yes, really, this all happened!

It was bittersweet to see Parisi finally show some character having spent most of his time on the series asleep; as the odds-on favourite to leave the show last night, it was always likely to be his last episode.

And so it proved as he became the third contestant to be dumped from the jungle, having received the fewest saving votes from the public.

In his exit interview, he admitted to presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly that he’d struggled to immerse himself with the bigger characters in the camp, with illness not helping his cause either.

Ahead of Tuesday night’s show, it’s James Haskell who finds himself taking the mantle as the heavy odds-on favourite to become the fourth celebrity to leave.

The former rugby player is 4/9 to be eliminated tonight.

Ian Wright is 5/1, with Stephenson 7/1 and his ‘crush’ Garraway 8/1.

Garraway and Wright were anointed camp leader and camp deputy leader respectively on last night’s episode, and it remains to be seen whether the power will go to their heads in the coming days.

One of their first jobs will be to appoint a new chef as they had tasked Parisi with that role alongside Jacqueline Jossa, who seemed less than impressed with the pressure dumped on her shoulders!

Fingers crossed tonight’s Dingo Dollar challenge delivers as much fun as last night’s, too.

It was simply hilarious seeing Jenner struggle to understand Andrew Whyment’s thick Mancunian accent.

However, tasked with finding each luggage bag’s return destination based on the items they could see within it underneath an X-ray machine, the unlikely duo got there in the end!

Nadine Coyle, meanwhile, who wasn’t the only celebrity to admit one of her TV crushes by revealing she finds presenter Dec “cute,” powered home in the Bushtucker Trial to gain 10/10 stars for camp.

Her odds to win this year’s series have come in significantly in recent days: she is now the fourth-favourite at 10/1.
