There are just hours to go until the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! final - and it's the first all-male top three for nearly 20 years.

Josie Gibson, the show's ante-post favourite on betting sites, departed on Saturday night, leaving Nigel Farage, Tony Bellew and Sam Thompson to battle it out for the King of the Jungle title.

The last all-male top three occurred in 2004, when comedian Joe Pasquale won the show, followed by former Royal butler Paul Burrell in second and celebrity nightclub manager Fran Cosgrave finished third. 

Ahead of Sunday night's final, Sam is the clear favourite to triumph, but UK bookmakers cannot choose between Nigel and Tony for the runner-up spot. 

In Josie's exit interview on Saturday night, she became the latest campmate to back Sam for the win, but also admitted she wouldn't mind seeing Tony triumph. 

She told co-hosts Ant and Dec: "Sam has just got a magic about him. He's been entertaining from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep. 

"He's lifted me when I've been at my lowest and he's so charming. Tony, he's so chivalrous, he's a proper gentleman and a lovely family man. It's out of those two." 

Sam Would Be Worthy I'm A Celebrity Winner

Sam has been odds-on to win the series on I'm A Celebrity betting sites for days now - and no one else would be a more worthy winner than him. 

The reality TV king has been a huge bundle of energy ever since he stepped foot in camp and he has developed bromances with Marvin Humes and his hero, Tony. 

It's some testament to what he's been like in camp that since the celebrity eliminations began last Sunday night, every evicted star - Frankie Dettori, Nella Rose, Fred Sirieix, Nick Pickard, Danielle Harold, Marvin, and Josie - has backed Sam to triumph. 

At times in the 23rd series, Sam's excitable energy almost felt like a competition winner had crept into the camp among the celebrities. 

But every star has commented on how infectious he is, and many have said the former Made in Chelsea star has helped to keep spirits up. 

Sam is now a best price of 11/25 with BetMGM for I'm A Celebrity victory, another slight decrease from his 1/2 odds on Friday and it would be a big surprise if either Tony or Nigel was to defeat him. 

Tony May Provide Knockout Blow

Despite that, Tony is known for providing knockout blows to his opponent, and he is second favourite to win this contest on specials betting sites

If there is to be a shock result in the I'm A Celebrity final, then it looks most likely to come from the former boxer, but the bookmakers are fairly divided on whether he or Nigel is Sam's biggest rival. 

He had drifted to 13/2 on Friday, but Tony is now into 9/2 with BoyleSports, and just 7/2 with several bookies to win the series.

One of the stories of the season has been Sam getting to know Tony and there have even been rumours the pair might land a spin-off TV series after this. 

The boxer has certainly shown his softer side in the I'm A Celebrity camp.

On Saturday night, the final four chose their show highlights and Tony said it was when his wife made a surprise visit into the jungle. 

Tony was a late entrant into camp alongside jockey Frankie, but he soon became a huge part of the furniture.

Nigel Needs Votes To Win I'm A Celeb

Nigel said his jungle highlight was Saturday night's Celebrity Cyclone challenge and the fact that he had even made the final four - and he's now gone one better and is into the top three. 

When the market opened on betting apps, Nigel was a 10/1 chance to be crowned King of the Jungle.

He is clearly delighted to have made the final three, but he is now the outsider of the trio to win the show. 

Nigel was 7/2 second favourite on Friday, but he is now out to a best price of 5/1 with BetVictor

While it looks extremely tight to call who will be second and third, the former UKIP leader will no doubt just be happy to be in the conversation after previously admitting he entered the jungle to reach a new and younger audience. 

Whoever triumphs on Sunday night, it has been an entertaining series, but the main man character at the centre of that has, without a doubt, been Sam.
