Wow! It's a risk, but will it pay off?

According to the betting shop, Jake is now the firm favourite to win this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! much to everyone's surprise!

Jessica Bridge, from Ladbrokes, says: "Two months ago when Jake was kicked out of X Factor he'd have been 1000/1 to win I'm A Celebrity.

"Now he's the red-hot favourite. It's only a matter of time before he's quoted at odds-on."

Singer Jake entered I'm A Celebrity as a latecomer along with former MP Edwina Currie and he's quickly won his way into the campmates' and viewers' hearts.

Last night, Jake was seen teasing Kendra Wilkinson with a strip dance before Edwina made the campmates chuckle by telling him he had a "chiselled face" and looked like a movie star!

Has he got what it takes to go all the way though?
