After a shaky start, punters think that Holly Willoughby’s guest presenter role on I’m A Celebrity could be made more permanent – as the odds have tumbled on her returning for next year’s series.
Paddy Power now make it Evens that she presents the 2019 edition, in from 7/1, after some rave reviews from viewers.
For context, that’s the same odds as runaway favourite Harry Redknapp winning this series – the football manager having attracted nearly half of all bets with the Irish bookmaker, having started the show as a 10/1 outsider.
And it’s just 2/1 that Ant McPartlin does NOT return next year.
While it’s 14/1 that Willoughby, who has been squeamish throughout the show’s tasks, joins camp mates in a Bushtucker Trial this series.
Spokesman Paddy Power said:
Holly Willoughby has been an I’m A Celeb star so far this series, despite making a bit of a meal of the tasks.
“Her kindly, supportive nature has added a new dynamic to the show – which means it’d surely be even better entertainment to force her to eat a kangaroo testicle or be covered in spiders at some point this series.”
