After being featured heavily during the first episode of I’m A Celebrity 2011, Mark Wright is undoubtely one of the favourites to win the show.

However, he many struggle to adapt to life in the jungle according to his The Only Way Is Essex co-star James ‘Arg’ Argent.

Arg revealed: “Mark hates all bugs, rats and stuff like that.”

“He will try to act cool but will be well out of his comfort zone. More than that though will be just living outside in the mess. He is OCD.”

“Whenever I go around to his house it is so immaculately clean. He hates sharing a toilet and never lets me go to the loo at his flat.”

“He has his own private en-suite and if I need to go I have to use the loo outside in the hall. And if I do a number 2 he’ll make me flush before, during and twice after.”

“God knows how he’ll cope in the bush dunny.”

Amy Childs – who left TOWIE to star in Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year – has also been speaking about Mark, saying that he will win the show.

She said: “I think he’s going to shock all of us, definitely. He’s brilliant – I’ve always been a big fan of Mark. I think Mark will win, definitely.”

“I reckon he’ll be having a bit of a cuddle in there, I don’t know who with though, you never know with Mark.”

As for other taking points from the opening show, they seem to be dominated by Fatima Whitbread.

She got stuck into life in the jungle, wearing a bikini as she lifted logs and worked out in front of the other contestants.

As for the I’m A Celebrity betting markets after the first show, Mark is the favourite to win at 11/4, followed by Antony Cotton at 10/3 and Dougie Poynter at 15/2.
