I’m A Celebrity 2022: Jill Scott is bookies’ favourite for Queen of the Jungle… but could Matt Hancock take her crown?

Jill Scott is the favourite to win the current series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, however some are predicting Matt Hancock could take home the crown.

The ex Lioness, 35, leads the way at 2/5 to be crowned Queen of the Jungle, while Owen Warner is placed at 5/1 and Matt Hancock sits at 6/1.

According to OLBG bookmakers, Mike Tindall has a chance of 8/1. And Matt remains in the show despite previous predictions he would be first to leave the jungle.

Woohoo! Jill Scott is the favourite to win the current series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, however some are predicting Matt Hancock could take home the crown

The former health secretary, 44, sparked controversy when he was confirmed to be heading into the Australian jungle earlier this month.   

He asked for ‘a bit of forgiveness’ following a grilling by fellow campmates about his controversies during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

MP Matt quit his cabinet role after controversially breaking his own lockdown rules by having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo last year. 

But now he’s made it to the final four and is unexpectedly set to take on the highly-anticipated Cyclone challenge.

Surprise: Matt remains in the show despite previous predictions he would be first to leave the jungle 

It comes after Seann Walsh became the seventh star to be eliminated on Friday.

I’m A Celeb 2022: Winning odds

Jill Scott – 2/5

Owen Warner – 5/1 

Matt Hancock – 6/1

Mike Tindall – 8/1

The comedian, 36, was joined by Owen in the bottom two before hosts Ant and Dec announced that he was the next person to leave the camp.

Joining Ant and Dec for his interview, Seann said: ‘That was crazy. What just happened?’ before going on to recall his initial shock at seeing Matt Hancock in the jungle as they first entered the camp.

Detailing his time on the show, Seann said: ‘I’m watering, the eyes. So many amazing memories. I absolutely loved it. It is tough and I don’t know how much that comes across through the screen but it is tough for everyone.

‘As soon as you said my name all of the toughness just goes and now I’m just left with absolutely incredible memories. I’m going to need a long time to process.’

On seeing disgraced former Health Secretary Matt when they entered camp as late arrivals, Seann told the hosts: ‘Very good guys… well done, I was not expecting that – I don’t think anyone else.

‘When I saw Matt, I thought, ‘maybe I’m not going out first!”

However, Seann, who formed a close friendship with the politician, was quick to add: ‘But he’s a lovely guy, he’s very funny.’

Close: Hollyoaks star Owen Warner is placed at 5/1

Oh well: According to OLBG bookmakers, Mike Tindall has a chance of 8/1

During the interview, the comedy star went on to discuss the issues he’s faced since his career took a nose-dive in the wake of his Strictly kissing scandal with Katya Jones and the subsequent gas lighting accusations by his ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.

On his fears of how viewers and campmates would perceive him, he explained: ‘Well I think that’s my issue and in my head.

‘We all listened to each other in there and everyone got their story out and there was so much support. We all accepted one and other for who we are today and in that jungle. To get this far it feels great.’

The stand-up comic also told of his joy at not only meeting popstar Boy George but getting to wash his back too, before joking that jungle life hadn’t cured his fear for spiders.

He added that he was ‘disappointed’ not to be in the highly-anticipated cyclone, but said he had ‘the best experience of my live, saying: ‘It was amazing.’

Before leaving, Seann tipped Jill Scott to be crowned Queen of the Jungle, telling the presenters: ‘I’m afraid it’s an easy answer. I love all of them but from the minute I met her, it had to be her… Jill. She’s the winner.’
