Huddersfield racing star James Whitham has urged fans to get behind his best mate Carl Fogarty in the jungle.

James' former biking partner Foggy is up for eviction on tonight's episode of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! and is going up against favourites Mel Sykes and Jimmy Bullard.

James, who runs Crosland Moor airfield, said that Foggy's appearance in the jungle has raised the profile of motorcycle racing, suggesting it's been good for the whole industry.

James said: "He's been in the jungle like he has with his mates at home.

"I'm chatting with people everyday in the bike show and every question I'm getting is how's your mate doing in the jungle. It's not actually just good for Foggy but for the whole industry."
