Christopher Biggins is the bookies’ favourite to win I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! when the jungle contest reaches its climax on Friday night.

Cerys Matthews became the eighth celebrity to be booted off the hit ITV1 show on Thursday, leaving panto star Biggins to battle it out with model Janice Dickinson and 5ive star Jason ‘J’ Brown to be crowned King or Queen of the jungle.

Janice and Biggins were told they were through to Friday’s final first, with ‘J’ emerging victorious after going head-to-head with Cerys in the public vote for another hour.

On her eviction, Cerys tipped Biggins to win the ITV1 show.

William Hill made Biggins red hot 1/4 favourite to win and expects to accept up to £2,000 a minute in the final few hours of betting – with more than £1 million gambled industry-wide.

And with 90 per cent of bets to date for Biggins, the bookies are hoping that motormouth Janice can come to their rescue.

“We are on the verge of taking a hammering – anyone but Biggins!” said William Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

William Hill are offering odds of 3/1 on Janice to win and 10/1 on ‘J’.
