Arsenal fans are confident their votes can lead the club’s legendary striker Ian Wright to I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here glory.

Wright entered the I’m a Celeb jungle earlier this week, with viewers getting to see their first taste of action at 9pm on Sunday on ITV.

The now TV pundit will be looking to follow in the footsteps of former football manager Harry Redknapp, who won the show last year.

Arsenal fans are notoriously known for winning online votes about their club and some feel that puts Wright in good stead for the coming weeks.

“An Arsenal legend in a competition where the peoples voting decides the winner? Arsenal Twitter, do your thing! #TeamIan,” one fan tweeted.

Another Gooner wrote: “Ian Wright has already won I’m a celeb lol, Arsenal Twitter won’t let him down.”

“Can’t wait for Arsenal Twitter to hijack the votes every night to absolutely s**thouse Ian Wright to I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here victory and make him King Of The Jungle,” wrote another.

Arsenal have had their worst start to a season for over 30 years, with Wright publicly stating it is time they moved on head coach Unai Emery.

And some fans joked Wright was going to the jungle so that he did not have to watch his former side play.

“It’s got to a point now where Ian Wright going into the jungle is more appealing to watch than watching Arsenal play under the current coach,” one supporter wrote.

Others joked about their club’s misfortunes, with one writing: “If you aint watching Ian Wright on I’m A Celeb then you ain’t Arsenal. Our best chance of a trophy this season.”

Another tweeted: “In before @IanWright0 comes 4th in @imacelebrity and the #Arsenal coming 4th jokes start.”

Wright is not the only Arsenal legend appearing on reality TV, with former Women’s captain Alex Scott appearing on Strictly Come Dancing.

And one fan is hoping Wright and Scott can bring a feel-good factor to their club.

They wrote: “Relying on Alex Scott and Ian Wright you bring some glory to Arsenal. LOL  #afc #StrictlyComeDancing #imacelebrity”
