Bookies Slash Odds On Ruth Jones Being Surprise I'm A Celeb Campmate
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! landed with a bang on our screens last night (15 November).
But, while viewers seem to be loving the new campmates, we can't help but think about who the late arrivals will be and Ruth Jones is the bookies' favourite.
Every year we see two new faces appear after the OGs have settled in to their surroundings - they usually mix things up a little as everyone starts to feel comfortable.
The Gavin and Stacey star has been priced at 6/4 to make a surprise entrance to the castle in her home country of Wales - down from 3/1 last week.
Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall are also thought to be potential latecomers - and former campmates Joey Essex and Vicky Pattison are expected to make a return in an unknown capacity. Bookies also think that Miranda Hart and Vinnie Jones (both 3/1) could make an appearance in this year's series.
A Paddy Power spokesperson said: "With travel restrictions limiting the chances of a Hollywood star joining the castle this year, producers might need to look more locally for some inspiration - and we think Ruth Jones is a 'tidy' option.

"From pigs' anuses to fisheyes, there are always some interesting items on the menu during the show... and we all know Vinnie Jones likes a big tackle."
After getting a look at this year's campers, bookies have also made adjustments to who they reckon will be crowned King or Queen of the Castle.
Shane Richie is now the fave (5/2) after his odds shortened from 7/2, while Vernon Kay also impressed last night and went from 13/2 to 9/2.
AJ Pritchard (14/1) and Sir Mo Farah (7/1) have seen their chances of winning decrease - out from 10/1 and 5/1 respectively.
ITV declined to comment when approached by LADbible.
