Following his shock departure from the jungle last night, we’re taking bets on what the former MP is likely to do next.

To the bemusement of viewers back home, the 77-year-old became the fifth person to leave the jungle after being in the bottom two with boxer and renowned good-guy Amir Khan.

Having established himself as the UK’s favourite Tory and preferred Johnson, the author will not be short on offers upon his arrival back in the UK. Punters can now get odds of 16/1 on Stanley becoming an MP before 2020 and odds of 25/1 for him to get a gig as a Cabinet Minister.

Those feeling a bit riskier can get odds of 400/1 on him derailing Boris’ dream and becoming Prime Minister before his son.

He is 25/1 to lend a helping hand to Boris by being part of the UK Brexit Negotiation team in 2018, however, those who feel that his blonde mane will be on television screens again soon can get odds of 9/1 for him to present his own ITV show, while he is 14/1 to be a contestant on next year’s version of Big Brother.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “As a true gent and entertainer, we are sad to see Stanley go – he only needed 18 days in a jungle to become more popular than old Boris dreams himself to be.”
