I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here could see either Made in Chelsea regular Sam Thompson or Tony Bellew named King of the Jungle, according to bookies.

The friendly duo have become incredibly popular in the jungle for their unlikely friendship which many viewers have compared to Shrek and Donkey.

It is no secret that Thompson clearly looks up to his "idol" Bellew but the boxer loves all the admiration.

Their bromance has won the hearts of the nation with their hilarious scenes together from Thompson begging to sit on Bellew's knee to when the Made In Chelsea star slapped the boxer because he had a mosquito on his forehead.

Bellew has joked Thompson is like a child with his enthusiasm. He previously said: "He’s just a ball of energy. He never stops. I have four kids. It’s not my first rodeo around children. He is literally the most energetic person I’ve ever met in my bloody life!"

Thompson was first named a favourite to win because of his Duracell Bunny energy and unstoppable enthusiasm which is why he was voted to be the first camp leader.

Previously bookies William Hill had their eyes on Josie Gibson as they believed she had the best chances of winning before the show had even started.

The This Morning presenter has continued to be popular on the show with her loveable nature.

But the former Big Brother star has seen her odds widen as Thompson and Bellew take the frontrunning position for the winner.

Nigel Farage also notably is a near favourite to be crowned the King of the jungle, according to bookies.

I'm A Celebrity winner odds:

  • Sam Thompson 5/4

  • Tony Bellew 5/4

  • Josie Gibson 7/1

  • Nigel Farage 12/1

  • Danielle Harold 22/1

  • Marvin Humes 33/1

  • Nick Pickard 80/1

  • BAR 100/1

What are the bookies saying?

William Hill spokesperson Lee Phelps, has shed some light on the odds saying: "We’ve had no choice but to slash Tony Bellew’s odds to win this year’s edition of I’m A Celebrity given the support we have seen for him in the market over the weekend.

"Bellew now occupies the top spot alongside Sam Thompson at 5/4. Given the bromance these two have brought to our screens, it’s only fitting they are equal in the running!

"Ex-frontrunner Josie Gibson is now the closest competition at 7/1 having been favourite in the market for the first week, with Nigel Farage next in line at 12/1."
