Friends or family member of controversial MP Nadine Dorries must have had a little flutter on the 55-year-old doing well on I’m a Celeb .

That, or a very optimistic punter has splashed out the biggest bet on the Tory politician – a paltry £10.

Bookies William Hill said the Mid Bedfordshire MP has attracted only 3% of the total bets staked so far.

She is 3/1 to be the first celeb voted out of the jungle and 2/1 to be picked to take on the first Bush tucker trial.

“Nadine is definitely the most unpopular contestant that any of us can remember,” said spokesman Rupert Adams.

Comic Brian Conley is the early favourite to leave as King of the Jungle, with his chances rated at 3/1.

“Brian has been off the radar but he has a real following and is just the sort to do well in the jungle,” said Adams.

Former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan is at 4/1 while EastEnders’ Charlie Brooks follows closely behind at 6/1.

@’m a Celebrity 2012 begins on Sunday November 11 with a 95 minute opening episode following the X Factor.
