Jordan voted out of jungle show

Glamour model Jordan is the latest contestant to be voted out of the ITV1 reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry McFadden is favourite to win the show.

The show pits a group of minor celebrities against each other as they brave a variety of disgusting challenges in the wilderness.

Viewers had enjoyed the entertainment from the ongoing flirtation between Jordan and ex-pop star Peter Andre.

Jordan's exit leaves former BBC royal reporter Jennie Bond, disgraced aristocrat Lord Brocket, Andre and McFadden to battle it out for the title of king or queen of the jungle.

The vote on Saturday night was close between Jordan or Andre to become the sixth contestant to leave the Australian camp.

Arguments

Single mother Jordan, from Brighton, told presenters Ant and Dec: "I really wanted to go today. I really wanted to see (son) Harvey."

She said that as the contest was nearing an end a tense atmosphere had begun which was likely to lead to arguments.

And she denied her flirting with Australian Andre had been a tactic to win her votes.

"I was warned about Peter before I got in there, but he's a nice guy," she said.

"There's nothing going on with him. He's gorgeous, good looking, the type I'd go for.

"If he does want to go for dinner we can, but I'm not saying anything will come of it. If he is in the country then he can stay at mine."

Alex Best, the estranged wife of soccer legend George Best, was voted out of the camp on Friday night.

And more than 11 million viewers tuned in on Thursday night to see former punk singer Lydon leave the rainforest camp.

Drooping odds

The other major source of entertainment is the feud between Bond and Brocket after she made remarks about his "moneyed background".

Jordan's eviction was good news for bookmakers as she had been favourite to win the competition.

William Hill spokeswoman Jennie Prest said, "Jordan seems to have made a bit of a boob by teasing Peter and from being well supported at the start of the show, her chances of winning seemed to droop in time.

"Despite this she was a long shot for eviction, so it was certainly a surprise. The punters can't see another winner except Kerry at the moment."
