I'm A Celebrity 2022: North East unites behind Sunderland Lioness Jill Scott in final days of I'm A Celeb ahead of Celebrity Cyclone challenge
Sunderland Lioness Jill Scott has been urged to “bring it home again” as she enters the final days of this year’s I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!
Women’s football legend Jill has won legions of new fans across the North East and beyond during her time in the I’m A Celeb jungle. And with the series finale just around the corner on Sunday, November 27 there are high hopes for the retired midfielder – the last woman standing in the competition – to make the final four, then the final three and take the crown.
With another contestant set to be voted off on Friday’s episode (November 25), the remaining four are expected to take on the much-anticipated Celebrity Cyclone challenge on Saturday’s show, before the grand finale on Sunday.
Jill remains in the jungle alongside fellow athlete Mike Tindall MBE, Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, comedian Seann Walsh and former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, whose entrance on the programme was a bombshell both for his fellow campmates in Australia and back home.
As I’m A Celeb enters its final days of the series, the North East community has united behind local lass Jill as hopes grow for a win. Here are some messages of support for our Queen of the Jungle – as well as a closer look at her chances of victory.
