Josh Gibson Set To Swoop On Im A Celebrity

Former Hawks AFL star Josh Gibson has emerged as a strong contender to be a contestant on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

Gibson has firmed from $13 into $1.10 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Tennis brat Bernard Tomic has also had his starting odds slashed from $61 and is now $1.40. Singer songwriter Shannon Noll splits the pair at $1.25 and has been the second best backed behind Gibson.

Rumours have been rife that the Nanny, Fran Drescher will be among the celebrities that will tough it out in South Africa. Drescher is $1.80, but other possible female contestants include one of the Veronicas, Jessica or Lisa Origliasso ($1.50). Mercedes Corby ($1.50) and Prue MacSween ($1.80) are also believed to be possibles.

“Celebrity names are coming out of the woodwork, but there’s been a good move for Gibson and also Tomic, with one punter having $10 on Tomic at $41. For some of the B-grade celebs, talking themselves up as a contestant is a good way to get some publicity, it’s hearsay so we’re guessing as much as anybody,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
