Goes in soon ....20/1 available on the High St.

No doubt will be tasked with shaking things up a little.Could easily do a Danny Baker and be 1st out,however I think he’s pretty savvy with RTV shows and will play things a little cuter.

Going to be an eventful ride ....could be 1000 or 3.5 in a weeks time,at 20/1 he has to be worth the risk though.

Choo Choo !!!

Yo Army, I so wish Iain Lee (the most real and honest celeb I've seen on IAC) and Toff were in Celeb BB House (it would be a very close run thing I reckon). Unfortunately in IAC ITV use trials to get their Winner which Toff is very good at and Iain  isn't so good at unfortunately :(.

Iain likes shocking people (for comedy effect), like when he called Ant and Dec Ar*eholes - I respect him for that- but will the mainly female voters . Even Ant and Dec found it funny when he said that.

If only it was us 40something, booze loving, ZX Spectrum/Commodore64 playing(back in the 80's), male bettors that voted on this - I think he would win hands down. [I love Iain's column in Retrogamer BTW ;) ).
Report CLYDEBANK29 December 5, 2017 12:57 AM GMT
They are all battling for 2nd place imo so that's how I'm looking at it.  I have my doubts about Iain too on the female front scampi, but I've more doubts about Amir on that score.  Social media loves him (Iain), but so much of SM is cause driven that doesn't transpire into actual votes.  I'm a bit on the fence regarding his chances of 2nd. Jamie and Jennie are much more the natural vote for this show, but Jamie has had 3 poor shows in a row and Jennie hasn't done enough. I have my doubts about Stanley because of his age too. He'd be the natural choice for me if Toff wasn't in it, but I do worry she is going to take votes off him and she's getting over 50% of the votes every day for me.  Still I think he's just such a decent bloke and very appealing to females, so he'd be my tentative pick for 2nd at this stage.
Report CLYDEBANK29 December 5, 2017 1:13 AM GMT
This is not BB.  Central characters who have major flaws don't do well and are always over bet.  You've got to be nice and down to earth to win this or even do well (and normally entertaining if you want to finish 1st, nice without being entertaining is normally just enough to finish placed)  That said, Toff is taking so many of the votes away, that if ever it was possible for a flawed character to finish second this is perhaps it.

Fantastic episode for Iain last night and now a fully deserved 2nd Fav.

Importantly he showed the viewers that he was grateful for people voting for him and that he no longer wanted to leave the jungle.Plenty of humour from him ....”The reason we didn’t choose Amir is because he’s Amir” Laugh

Still got a few aces up his sleeve too....

Due a Dingo Dollar challenge.
Bushtucker Trial also due to complete a redemption story.
Yet to receive his email which may be shoe-horned in late on.
Continuing bullying narrative.

Throw in media stories of him being in the jungle to pay for his sick mum’s care,large sections where he is the camp narrator,continual favouritism from the spin off show and even support from Ant n Dec ....hopefully his Top Male & Top 3 prospects are looking rosy.

Still has a mountain to climb to beat Toff tbf,however if anyone does beat her,it will be Iain.

I would like to thank Army, Bear, Hemsby etc in opening my eyes and highlighting this horrific bullying torture that Iain is so obviously being subjected to, very commendable.

Thus I am sure you will all have absolutely no issues whatsoever in dropping any pathetic pocket talking rhetoric in deference by boycotting any vote for poor Iain, and further, actively campaign that friends (if you've got any) and family follow suit.

Malevolent, atrocious comments (that Iain has absolutely no knowledge of), reported in the Mirror article bear so kindly posted, such as:

"the water was more like 1.5 meters, not three." Shocked

"Iain has a lot of problems, problems with heights, problems in water - not sure what he is good at." ShockedShockedShocked

are morally repugnant and are, unfortunately, some of the worst examples of bullying I, NOT IAIN, have ever seen and heard Sad

Do not make a mistake of Pontius Pilate proportions via voting to keep this poor man incarcerated in a environment of despotic tyrants. Concentrate on voting for the evil Amir so as to subject him to more spiders, snakes and critters, a pathetic punishment in the broader scheme of things, but a punishment all the same. Let Iain go home ASAP with a suitcase stuffed with appearance cash so he can sort his $hit out and be with his family. Love

Being a woman and as such much more likely to vote, I just cannot see the appeal of Iain Lee. 

I knew nothing about him when he came on the show and indeed I did initially bet on him.  However, I rapidly went off him.  His manner and his refusal to do trials added to my dislike.  If young women half his age can do the trials, so can he.

I have some high street bets on Iain for top man, I'm not going to cash them out at what would be the same as laying Iain @1.45 for top male.
Jamie got "it could be you" with Amir, there is no reason to think that was false, with Jennie going yesterday that would infer that Amir,Jamie and Jennie were close together and Iain is clear of Jamie in the vote.
Toff will probably suck 75% + of the vote.

Would  love to see Iain winning it, who knows how much real good it could do his mental issues? Toff doesn`t need the win, she`s set up for life after this, and Jamie winning would be a victory for Neanderthal bullying. Iain catching Toff was a possibility for a while, but I fear all hope is gone, Toff`s quite simply the best there`s ever been, so have finally bailed on him, all-in on Toff.
