Andy, 38, arrived as late comer to this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! camp, but it wasn’t long before the Coronation Street star was winning over the hearts of the nation once more. It is due to this support from viewers of the ITV reality show the actor could go all the way and win the coveted title.
After Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, 52, made her exit from the jungle last night, just three contestants remain in the battle to the top spot.
Alongside Andy, former EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa, 27, and Capital FM star Roman Kemp, 26, are also vying for the crown.
Having trumped their fellow all star line-up members to get to the final, it seems they all have huge backing from fans of the show.
However, Andy has been the most consistent in terms of the amount of support given to him on social media, so could Mediaworks’ analysis have sealed his fate as winner of the series?

The data gurus gather their results by studying the sentiment of a hundred daily posts for each contestant on Twitter, then giving each star a score out of 100 to correlate with the level of support they’re getting.
Although all three finalists have had peaks and troughs with regards to the level of sentiment achieved over the past fortnight, Andy has had no significant dip over the past week.
His scores have remained within the remit of 77 and 64 out of 100 with regards to positive sentiment, whereas Jacqueline and Roman have suffered some lower point marks.
In the last seven days, the former soap actress has received her highest score of 82, but as recently as Thursday, saw her figures drop to 57.

Capital FM presenter Roman has topped with a score of 75 on Tuesday, but suffered a drop to 62 on Wednesday.
Having been the most consistent not only in last week but over the course of the series, does the results of the data suggest Andy will emerge as the winner?
The most recent analysis from yesterday however puts Jacqueline at the top of the billing, trumping her fellow finalists.
Sentiment of support for the EastEnders star rose to 77, with Andy at 72 and the youngest finalist at 68.
