After his heroics with Kendra Wilkinson in last night’s Bushtucker Trial one gambler from West London was so convinced that Jimmy will be crowned this year’s King of the Jungle that he wagered £10,000 on it.

Ladbrokes have now cut Jimmy’s odds to just 11/8, leaving Mel Sykes as the clear second favourite at 9/4.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Jimmy is the most popular I’m A Celebrity contestant ever, and other than Mel, it’s becoming harder to see who else could actually win this year’s show.”
