Ronnie O’Sullivan is amongst the favourites to be on this year’s edition of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, according to our TV-binging traders.
They’ve told Paddy that the newly crowned snooker world champion’s odds have fallen from 8/1 to odds-on at 4/5 overnight following a series of bets to appear on the show, putting him in the top five most likely famous face to find themselves swimming in slop and munching on crunchy critters this year.
Though if he is on this year’s line-up, and lasts the distance, our traders would rate him around a 3/1 shot to continue his World Championship success and win the entire show – provided he doesn’t walk-off like he did against Stephen Hendry in the UK Championship back in the day.
That’s a shorter price than we make him to take home the prestigious BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award for 2020 following his Crucible success.
He’s rated as third-favourite for that honour at 7/2, behind Tyson Fury (7/4) and Lewis Hamilton (10/3), but ahead of the BoJo-humbling Marcus Rashford (4/1) and Liverpool’s all-conquering captain Jordan Henderson (12/1).
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Rocket Ronnie could be on his way to a castle in Wales to appear on this year’s I’m A Celeb, as we’ve slashed his odds of joining.
“And although his odds of winning the show and completing the World Championship/I’m A Celeb double look good, he could also decide just to walk off completely!”
