Nov. 9, 2006 – Another array of celebrities will make their way into the Australian outback in a bid to be crowned king or queen of the jungle and in doing so restoring their flagging careers.
Each celebrity will have a nominated charity which will generate cash every time the viewers vote to keep them in the show, so the longer they stay in the more cash they get for their good causes.
As always Ant and Dec will make this ‘must see TV’ as the double act take the contestants through various ‘Bushtucker Trials’ and challengers in order to win both popularity and food for the camp.
They say it each year, but the show has promised to make this one better than ever, with more gruesome trials and harder living conditions. So with all this thrown into the mix one things certain expect plenty more blubbering, bed hopping and bug eating.
Past winners have seen three kings and two queens of the jungle, as Tony Blackburn won the first series, Phil Tufnell, Kerry Katona, Joe Pasquale after that, and last time Carol Thatcher was voted the most popular.
With all the twists and turns in past shows over 15 million people are due to tune in to watch the action, so expect some fierce betting activity as the bookmakers get stuck into another series in what should be one of their most competitive events in the specials category.
At this early stage the layers have a wide range of markets to get your teeth into, but in the outright betting ex-Busted star Matt Willis (4/1) and Jason Donovan (3/1) are most people’s idea of the winner with Myleene Klass (11/2) the best of the females.
