The first celebrity will be voted off I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! tonight. Richard Madeley has already left Gwrych Castle after falling ill just four days into this year’s series. He was reported to have been rushed to hospital, but breaking the ‘Covid bubble’ meant he was not allowed to mix with the other celebrities again.
Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Philips is the hot favourite to be the first eliminated in Sunday’s episode.
According to Betfred, she is priced at 4/5, with Kadeena Cox second favourite at 4/1.
Third and fourth favourites to leave are EastEnders legend Adam Woodywatt, famous for playing Ian Beale, and former BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin.
They are both priced at 8/1 with the bookmaker.
Louise left her fellow campmates in tears after receiving an emotional phone call from her family on Saturday night’s show.
Her husband David and two daughters gave her an update on life on the outside, and offered words of comfort and support.
David, her husband of over 20 years, assured Louise she was doing “brilliantly” in a heartwarming moment.
David and Louise married in June 1998 in a tiny Hampshire church, with just 50 people squeezed inside.
He is a restauranteur and investor, and invested in Chestnut Inns, a collection of pubs, inns and restaurants in the East Anglia area.
The pair are both extremely active, with Louise an amateur triathlete who competed in the World Triathlon Championships in 2016. David, meanwhile, is a keen skier.
Though Louise rarely speaks about her relationship with her husband, she recalled a “turning point” in their relationship earlier this year.
Speaking to Decathlon’s The Power of Ten podcast, she said: “Swimming was my thing. And I also love skiing and my husband is a really good skier.

“I always go skiing with him and it was just like, my gosh, trying to keep up with him, you know, was really hard because he’s very good, very fast, very safe.
“And then there was one point in our relationship when things changed and I’d been doing a lot of spinning.
“I used to do spin classes and I came down a glacier and I said, ‘Oh my gosh, where is he?’
“And I was literally standing there for ages going, ‘Oh, this is so bad. I’ve left him on the mountain’.
“He goes, ‘No, you’re just really fast!’ And that was a day that our relationship on the mountain changed.”
Louise has always stressed the importance of exercise, and has competed in a number of gruelling challenges.
Alongside the likes of Nick Grimshaw and fellow I’m A Celebrity contestant Frankie Bridge, she completed a 100-mile desert expedition for Sport Relief.
On the podcast, she said exercising has an enormous impact on her mental wellbeing.
She said: “For me, it’s the mental health, it’s the physical… every single day it makes a difference to the way I feel mentally and physically.”
The family-of-four live in Cheshire, not far away from the BBC studios in Salford where Louise presented BBC Breakfast for 20 years.
Louise often posts pictures of the family’s two dogs Ruby and Waffle, as well as her bike rides and swims in the local lakes.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs daily at 9pm on ITV.
