I’m A Celebrity Get Me Outta Here doesn’t start for another month but the rumour mill is rife with potential contestants.

Axed Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has some spare time on his hands now he has been given the boot from the club and is 100/1 to win I’m Celeb, if he enters the jungle.

Louis Walsh is another man with some more free time than he would be accustomed to and is priced at 12/1, having drifted from 8/1 to win.

Recent Celebrity Big Brother winner and Apprentice star James Hill has been thrown into the mix and he is 7/1 to add King of the Jungle to his reality TV accolades. Also on offer at 7/1 are Denise Van Outen and ex footballer Paul Gascoigne.

Craig Charles is the early favourite to win at 6/1, should he return to the jungle after unfortunately pulling out last year due to a family bereavement.

Hollyoaks actress, Stephanie Davis is the most recent name circulating in the media and she has gone in as a 12/1 shot to win should she sign up.

Gemma Collins is also expected to make her return to the jungle, but is a 33/1 shot to take the crown.

Other celebs in the betting are Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews (10/1), X Factor winner James Arthur (12/1), model Keely Hazell (16/1), presenter Anne Robinson (20/1) and TV chef Rusty Lee (25/1).

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports, said: “Stephanie Davis is the most recent rumoured celeb but all eyes have been set on Brendan Rodgers to enter the jungle following his sacking as Liverpool manager.

“Rodgers didn’t have much success in the Premier League and it looks as though his run of bad luck will continue at 100/1 to win if he heads into the jungle.”

She added: “James Hill is fresh off the back of his Celebrity Big Brother win, but he may want to continue his reality TV journey with a trip to the jungle and he is already challenging favourite Craig Charles for the title at 7/1.”
