Shane Warne set to make a splash on I'm A Celebrity tonight

HE HASN"T even been seen meeting the other celebrities yet, but Shane Warne is already the favourite to win I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The former cricketer and King of Spin will be seen entering camp tonight, where the other 11 celebrities will learn he has authority over them as camp leader.

Online bookmaker SportsBet already has Warnie as the favourite to take out the 2016 crown and win $100,000 for his embattled charity.

The bookie has event put $2.50 odds on Warnie "hooking up" with iron woman Courtney Hancock.

Based on viewer reactions to last night's debut episode Warnie's biggest competition for the title is likely to be either rugby league legend Paul Harragon or comedian Akmal Saleh.

For his first tucker trial tonight, Warnie nominated good friend Brendan Fevola to join him in a test of endurance when they are buried up to their necks in a combination of corn, bugs, frogs and snakes.

It seems even British rock band Coldplay are supporting Warnie in his bid for jungle supremacy.

I'm A Celebrity airs tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
