It hasn't even started yet, but one celeb is already the bookies' favourite to win the show. While they'll be a long way away from getting a nice tan in the Aussie jungle, it looks as though Frankie Bridge might come up trumps and be queen of the Welsh castle.

It seems like forever ago, but husband Wayne came fifth on the show five years ago back in 2016 and the Loose Women presenter could be victorious.

According to bookies Betfair, Frankie's odds are at 4/1 followed by Louise Minchin at 9/2, while at the bottom of the popularity list is former Strictly judge Arlene Phillips at 25/1.

Back on the box at the end of November, 12 celebrities will be battling it out to win the title while holed up in Gwrych Castle in Wales.

Singer-turned-presenter Frankie is taking part in the gruelling ITV show but is anxious about leaving her family including sons Parker, eight, and Carter, six.

A source told The Sun: “Wayne really enjoyed his time in the Australian jungle, and Frankie is looking forward to giving the show a go too. She is pretty excited.

“She is nervous about leaving Wayne and the boys for such a long time, but she is determined to give the challenge her all and really throw herself in."
