I'm A Celebrity...All Stars: South Africa is almost at an end - of the 15 celebs who took part in the ITV spin-off reality series, only four remain ahead of the finale. Ant and Dec will announce the first ever All Stars winner in a 90-minute final episode.
Three weeks on from when nine I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! alums headed to Kruger National Park, followed by a further six late arrivals, and now we're in the endgame.
Iconic campmates from the last 21 years joined hosts Ant and Dec for the 'brutal' series. In the original version of the reality show, the celebrities had to win the public over to take the title of King or Queen of the Jungle - this year it's all different.
In a twist on the original series, the celebs were learned they would soon have to vote each other out. Gillian McKeith and Shaun Ryder were the first to leave after coming last in Savage Safari trial. They were not kicked out by their fellow campmates, but later celebs were.
As the show was pre-recorded, there's no public vote and the celebs must compete against each other to win in the season's final episode. This means that guessing a likely winner isn’t as simple as choosing the most popular or likeable campmate. These are the odds for the first winner of I’m A Celebrity All Stars:
Who is the favourite to win I’m a Celebrity All Stars 2023?
As the show is fully pre-recorded, having been filmed last year, and there is no public vote a show winner has already been decided. Although the name of the winner has not been revealed, it is not possible to bet on the outcome. Therefore, these are the hypothetical odds for the All Stars contestants, after the late arrivals joined the show, according to Gambling.com:
- Myleene Klass - 2/1
- Fatima Whitbread - 3/1
- Jordan Banjo - 4/1
- Phil Tufnell - 5/1
This means that Myleene Klaaa is the favourite to win the series, with a 33% chance - the singer, model, and presenter is best known as a member of the British pop group Hear'Say, which was formed on the ITV reality series Popstars. She first took part in I'm A Celebrity in season six, and came second place to Busted bassist Matt Willis.
Could a late arrival win I’m A Celebrity All Stars?
It’s possible that a late arrival could go on to win the show, but history suggests this is unlikely. Of the 22 winners in I’m A Celeb history, only two have been late arrivals - actor Christopher Biggins, who entered the jungle on day five in season seven, and Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison who joined season 15 on day three.
However, as there’s no public vote, arriving late may not matter so much on All Stars, as the celebrities won’t need to find favour with the public. As they will be competing against each other for the I’m A Celebrity ‘Legend’ title, the late arrivals could be in with as much chance of winning as the original cast of campmates. Myleene Klass is the only late arrival left on the show - she joined the series alongside Andy Whyment and Georgia Toffolo on day three.
If we factor in how each celebrity did in their respective seasons then the odds change again. Of the finalists, only one is a former King/Queen of the Jungle - Phil Tufnell, who won the second season of the show way back in 2003.
Jordan Banjo came ninth on his season, Fatima came third, and ‘bookies’ favourite’ Myleene Klass came second.
