I'm A Celebrity; Betting on Carl Fogarty

    Just interested on opinions on this one.

    Foggy in now odds on in some places to win Celebrity.

    Where is he getting the popularity from?

    Bikers? Or is he proving to be just an all round decent fella? He was double figures (I think just over a week ago).

    I haven't been watching it much this year, but I suspect when Jimmy Bullard left, the betting market changed dramatically - hence his drop in price.

    Cheers Harry.

    He was still pretty big odds, 5s and 6s after Jimmy left. Up until 2 days ago he was 3's and possibly bigger in places. But now odds on flip flopping with Jake, who was never odds on. It just seems that there has been a very recent surge in bets on him, dropping the price to odds on.

    In a horse race, it would suggest some sort of significant change in circumstances or new knowledge.

    Will be interesting to see the result.

    I'm thinking this has a lot to do with it..

    “When Foggy dominated World Superbikes racing in the Nineties, he was shortlisted for the BBC Sports Personality prize.

    But despite fans voting in their tens of thousands he narrowly missed out to famous faces from more mainstream sports.

    Foggy, 48, could have been eliminated on Monday when just four celebs faced the public vote.

    But he avoided the chop and since then his family have galvanised UK support for the Blackburn racing legend, using the hashtags #votefoggy and #savefoggy on social media.""
