Radio One DJ Jordan has been hotly tipped to win from the start of the show but the latest odd also suggest CBeebies presenter Giovanna Fletcher is a serious contender as she is also the last woman standing.

The bookies still see Jordan as the most likely winner of the series, with Paddy Power’s 'I’m a Celebrity' odds making him 6/5 favourite.

In last night's show Jordan finally received his treat from home after fellow contestants Olympian Mo Farah and 'Strictly Come Dancing' star A J Pritchard won a challenge.

Jordan was thrilled to finally receive his treat from home, a letter from his mum with a bar of chocolate, in last night's episode after fellow contestants A J Pritchard and Jessica Plummer won a challenge.

In the moving letter Jordan's mum told him how proud everyone was of him and that he was braver than he believed. She also told him he should 'believe in yourself as much as we believe in you.'

Olympian Mo Farah and 'Strictly Come Dancing' star A J Pritchard were the latest two celebrities to leave the show after receiving the fewest votes, leaving just Jordan and Giovanna, along with Eastenders legend Shane Richie and TV presenter Vernon Kay.

One more celebrity is expected to leave tonight leaving the final three to battle it out to win in the grand final tomorrow night.

Jordan won the hearts of the nation from day one when he admitted he was 'scared of everything' and was promptly sick when asked to abseil down a cliff.

Viewers voted him to face four bush tucker challenges and that was when his mantra' 'happy place, happy place Turf Moor' came into play. A huge fan of the Clarets Jordan kept repeating the phrase and it caught on with Burnley fans and viewers.

Burnley FC produced a t-shirt bearing the slogan with proceeds of sales going to Pendleside Hospice, where Jordan is an ambassador, and Burnley Community Kitchen.

Staff and pupils at his former school, St James Lanehead, have been inspired to Jordan to draw images of their own 'happy places' and they also made several 'good luck' posters for Jordan.

And last weekend Team Jordan cupcakes went on sale at newly opened bakery, Cuppa Cakes in Burnley. And owner Cheryl Jackson is donating 50 pence to Pendleside Hospice for every cake sold.
