The show may not be returning to our screens until October, but betting on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here has already commenced with UK bookmakers offering up odds on who will take part in the 2022 series.

The last two series of the annual ITV show have taken place in Gwrych Castle, Wales, due to restrictions around Covid-19, but in 2022 viewers can expect a return to the Australian outback.

With the global spectacle that is the FIFA World Cup taking place in November and December, I’m A Celeb producers have taken the wise decision to bring forward the launch date of the 2022 series.

October 30 is the mooted start date this year, with the winner set to be declared by November 20 (the World Cup begins the following day), and betting sites have already put a price up on the celebs rumoured to be taking part.

I’m A Celeb 2022 Cast

One of the most eye-catching names on Ladbrokes’ list of potential contestants is WBC heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, who remains the top dog in his boxing division despite recently suggesting he’s ready to retire.

Ladbrokes reacted to Fury claiming his win over Dillian Whyte would be his last fight by putting a price of 16/1 on him entering the jungle in 2022, but the Englishman is yet to vacate his title and is still expected to fight the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua II.

That fight takes place in July and should Fury rediscover his desire to continue fighting, a unification bout later in the year would put an end to the I’m a Celebrity rumours.

There’s usually at least one active or former sports star in the I’m A Celebrity line-up though, and former Bolton, Blackburn and Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce has reality TV written all over him.

In fact, the one-game England manager has confirmed he’s turned down advances from I’m a Celeb hosts Ant and Dec on numerous occasions, but admits it’s a very tempting proposition – if only his wife would allow it.

“My wife won't let me do I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! She said I'd embarrass her,” he said, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at the launch of 5-A-Side Bet.

“She reckons I'd just try and take over everything, she thinks I'd be bossing everybody about, so either she'd have to be in there with me, watching me all the time, or I'd be better off taking her advice and leaving it alone.

“I know Ant and Dec really well, of course, I have done for many years. They've tried to entice me on plenty of occasions over the years. ‘Come on, big man. We'd love to have you on’. It has been tempting, to be fair. Very, very tempting.”

Familiar Faces

There are two other interesting I’m a Celeb rumours from the sporting world. Although neither can be considered an athlete, Mike Dean and Jeff Stelling are familiar faces to football fans up and down the country.

Long-time Soccer Saturday host Stelling has been the face of Sky Sports’ football coverage for 30 years and had announced his intention to retire from broadcasting at the end of the 2021-22 season.



That prompted Ladbrokes to put a price of 2/1 on Stelling going into the jungle later in the year. However, Stelling has since had a change of heart and will in fact remain as Soccer Saturday host for one more campaign.

That has put to bed any rumour of a stint on I’m a Celebrity, but he certainly fits the profile producers tend to pursue, so don’t be surprised if he makes an appearance on the show in 2023.

The other aforementioned sporting figure – Premier League referee Mike Dean – has now retired from on-field officiating and will be remembered for his flamboyant refereeing style.

The 53-year-old has been given odds of 2/1 to appear on the next series of I’m a Celebrity.

Elsewhere, after recently marking his retirement by joining Twitter, it seems former Sheffield United, Cardiff and Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock isn’t ready to shun the limelight just yet.

His arrival to social media at the age of 73 was greeted with amusement by football fans, many of whom also tune in to I’m a Celeb each year.

As ever, Ladbrokes were quick out of the blocks by putting odds of 3/1 on Warnock signing up for the jungle in 2022, and you wouldn’t put it past him.

Unless, of course, he’d rather keep his schedule free in case another inviting job comes up in the Championship next season.
