Eric Cantona could be set for a shock stint Down Under later this year, according to our latest odds.
The former Manchester United footballer is reportedly being lined up as ITV chiefs’ ‘dream signing’ for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, and our traders makes the Frenchman just a 2/1 shot to head into the jungle.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “There’s every chance King Eric is crowned I’m A Celeb champ later this year if the latest odds are anything to go by.”
Sporting heroes have done well in the jungle in the past. Former England cricketer Phil Tufnell won the competition in 2003 and tennis’ Martina Navratilova was second in 2008.
Snooker legend Jimmy White finished third a year later, with Olympic javelin thrower Fatima Whitbread also third in 2011.
Heavyweight boxer David Haye was also third in 2012, before World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty won in 2014, before ex-football manager Harry Redknapp was crowned king of the jungle in 2018.
