The Best I’m a Celebrity Tips from Will HillPublished November 25, 2010
Who's your King or Queen of the Jungle?
Amazingly, William Hill online thinks I'm a Celebrity villain Gillian McKeith now has a better chance of winning the reality show than she did just a few days ago. Yes, we are talking she of possibly the most dismal series of Bush Tucker Trial performances in jungle history, not to mention the most negative attitude.

McKeith's Chances Improve
Just a few days ago, Britain's most dreaded nutritionist was firmly ensconced at the bottom of the celebrity heap, with odds of 100/1 for an outright win. Today, even after a verbal attack on fellow jailbird contestant and fans' favourite, Stacey Solomon, McKeith is sitting pretty (well, not that pretty) at 66/1. In fact, Will Hill now rates former Bond girl, Britt Ekland (80/1,) and Playboy Playmate, Kayla Collins (also 80/1), as less likely to take home the crown than McKeith.
A Case of Schadenfreude?
Perhaps Will Hill is aware of the love/hate relationships we Brits have with reality show stars. Nothing is more entertaining than watching a celebrity making a total fool out of herself, and McKeith has certainly done that. Amid rumours of her wobbly mental state and even that 51-year-old McKeith claimed to be pregnant to avoid a term in Jungle Jail (in footage that was cut by programme directors), WH may be gearing up for the event that McKeith just might receive some "respect for sticking it out" votes when the time comes.
Nevertheless, the folks at Will Hill announced a few days ago that either Solomon or former Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder would take home the coveted royal title, and they are sticking to their guns: Solomon's odds are currently 5/6 and Ryder's 5/2. The statistics are, fluid, though - so you should check Will Hill's site for the latest predictions.
More Markets Please!
Our two pence worth for WH is that dramatic shows like I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here clearlyhave so much potential for interesting markets, it's almost a shame that only one is available (outright winner). Hint, hint.
