That's one prediction he didn't want to get right: Eric Bristow misses out on the I'm A Celebrity final as he's voted out of the jungle
But Eric Bristow was left eating his own words when he correctly predicted he would be the next for the chop on Thursday night's show.
The legendary darts player has now been evicted from the programme, meaning he just misses out on the final.
Latest I'm A Celeb casualty: Darts legend Eric Bristow has become the latest star to be evicted from the jungle, narrowly missing out on the final
And the sports man was happy to admit he was gutted to have got so close to the final day.
The controversial star became the latest casualty by being evicted from the show on Thursday night.
Eric was placed in the bottom two alongside EastEnders actress Charlie Brooks when Ant and Dec came to tell them their fates.
But he was inevitably told it would be him who would be walking across the bridge a day before the king or queen is announced.
Grand exit: The darts legend grinned widely as he was reunited with his son after walking the bridge to freedom
Walk of pride: Eric admitted he would have liked to have been in the final but didn't seem too disheartened
Bristow told Ant and Dec after he'd said his goodbyes to Charlie Brooks, David Haye and Ashley Roberts: 'It's great I'm out... but I would have liked to make the last three.'
But he then reflected on it and added: 'I think it's right the three young'uns are there, it's worked out well.'
And it was certainly a busy last day for Eric in the camp.
He was partnered up with Pussycat Doll Ashley after they were selected for the Dingo Dollar Challenge which saw the pair messing about in a huge pile of straw that hid keys and a few little chocolates scattered around.
The keys would open boxes that contained chocolates and dollars and they had to make $100 in order to shop at the Outback Shack.
Who's it going to be? He was placed in the bottom two alongside EastEnders actress Charlie Brooks
Saying his goodbyes: Every day this week Eric has correctly predicted who would be next to be evicted off the show, and had said he thought he would be next
A cheeky Ashley said: 'I don’t go jumping in haystacks that often so this is going to be ‘popping my cherry’ in that department but I’m super stoked to see how it goes.'
They worked either side of the huge straw bales and found the keys - Ashley opened the boxes finding a few dollars at a time and then some chocolate treats which Eric let her eat .
Eric started singing the Wurzels hit ‘Combine Harvester’ which Ashley said she didn’t recognise as it was before her time.
Still smiling: He happily walked towards Ant and Dec ready for his evictee interview
Opening up: Bristow chatted about his controversial time in the jungle with Ant and Dec on Thursday night's show
Then there were three: It means David Haye, Charlie Brooks and Ashley Roberts are 2012's finalists
After the challenge Eric said: 'I spent the afternoon in the hay bales with good looking Ashley.'
She cheekily added afterwards: 'Eric and I did roll in that hay and we got dirty and messy.'
Having won the Dingo Dollar Challenge, Eric and Ashley headed to the Outback Shack, where the treats that were on offer were baked beans and corned beef.
When Ashley said she didn’t know what corned beef was, Eric’s explanation seemed to confuse her more and she said: 'I’m nervous about meat coming in a can.'
Standing proud: He admitted several days ago that he had placed a £20,000 bet on himself getting to the final six
But Eric said: 'We have enough beans. The others will be happy with this,' and opted for the corned beef.
Eric later added: 'She didn’t know what corned beef was, an American girl and fitness fanatic, she doesn't eat all this rubbish that we eat.'
Back in camp, David answered the phone and read the question to Charlie which was,‘once out of the jungle which of these did Helen have first, a spray tan or a blow dry?’
Getting involved: He'd had a busy last day in the jungle as he announced to his camp mates they all had to take part in a joint challenge together
Take that: They were all taking part in 'Cyclone' which saw them collecting stars against pouring water
Doing his bit: Eric managed to grab hold of several stars before making his big departure from the jungle on Thursday
Bemused, David said: 'She would have had a spray tan and then came back and done her make up and got her hair done.'
Charlie agreed and they opted for the first answer, a spray tan.
However, when Ashley and Eric unveiled their treat, Charlie clearly disappointed, admitted that she would have preferred the baked beans.
Showing off his skills: Eric was given the opportunity to play his beloved darts as the camp mates set about winning treats on the dart board
Special treat: They even won four minutes worth of phone calls for one camp mate after successfully striking the board with their darts
Overjoyed: Charlie was ecstatic when they let her speak to her daughter Kiki, a day after the disappointment of narrowly missing getting to see her in the flesh in the jungle
Later Charlie said: 'Baked beans in the tomato based sauce and all that salt and sugar would have out-weighed a can of meat that smells and looked like dog’s food.'
Charlie asked Eric if he eats corned beef and the darts ace replied: 'I’ve got a couple of tins in the cupboard that have been in there for years. It’s alright for a snack.'
Still perplexed by the notion of corned beef Ashley asked her camp mates: 'Why is it ok to be served like that, how can it just sit on a shelf forever in a can?'
As David and Eric munched on their lunch time snack, Ashley and Charlie clearly didn't enjoy the meal.
After just a few mouthfuls Ashley decided she couldn't eat it and headed off for a shower.
The dancer later said: 'Corned beef is disgusting! I don’t even know what is in there, what it's made of? It can’t be meat. It's salty, it's chewy, it smells like dog food. I don’t even know if I could serve my dog that.'
