Nigel Farage dealt huge blow with bad news ahead of ITV I’m A Celebrity final

Nigel Farage's dreams of being crowned King of the Jungle on ITV's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! are looking shaky. The outspoken campmate was hoping to win against all odds, but it seems like viewers might not choose him as their champion among the final three.

Made In Chelsea star Sam Thompson is the top pick, according to Ladbrokes, who have him as the favourite at 4/11 to win. Former boxer Tony Bellew, who has won over the audience, is second with odds of 4/1. This puts him just ahead of Farage (9/2), who is predicted to come third on the reality show.

A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: "We're guaranteed a King of the Jungle this year, and while Nigel Farage has been well backed of late, the odds suggest Sam Thompson is a shoo-in for the crown."

There's been some drama in the camp, and This Morning presenter Josie Gibson hinted that Farage was just after "airtime". The pair had a disagreement over a Bushtucker Trial on Friday night.

Josie, who became the camp leader by default, decided to take on the latest Christmas-themed Trial. She said: "I'm going to do it. If you want me to do it, I'll do it."

Tony Bellew asked Josie: "Are you going to be scared of anything that's landed on you? Because right now we need stars?" Josie admitted: "I'm scared of all of it… but you feel like you need to win stars and maybe I've not got the minerals."

Farage then shared his reasons for wanting to take part, saying: "I did a lot of Bushtucker Trials in the early phases, you boys have now caught up. So it's my turn. My turn, simple as that." Marvin chimed in with: "I'm happy to do it" and Tony agreed: "I'm the same." Meanwhile, Josie confessed: "I feel like I need to prove myself a bit now."

After some discussion about who should tackle the trial, Josie finally admitted she wasn't the campmate for the task and said: "No, it's alright. Let Nige do it, he wants the airtime!"

Later, in the Bush Telegraph, Josie reflected: "I should have fought my corner a bit more but he wants the airtime because he wants to prove himself to the nation."
