The runners and riders for tonight’s Celebrity Big Brother final

| 28.01.2014

The most memorable and enthralling series of Celebrity Big Brother in recent memory draws to a close tonight and while comedian Jim Davidson is the odds-on favourite there is still plenty of voting left to do.

Here, we take a last look at the finalists of the Channel 5 reality series and rate their chances of being crowned winner.

Jim Davidson – 1/5

The former Big Break host is the clear favourite after entertaining viewers with an ongoing feud with Linda Nolan.

His reputation has been further enhanced in recent days after patching things up with the divisive Luisa Zissman and proving a father figure during times in need for Casey Batchelor.

With the comic also having a tough year, the sympathy vote could secure his crown.

Dappy – 5/1

The biggest threat to Davidson’s glory, Dappy has been the surprise package in this year’s edition of the show.

The N-Dubz rapper was recently tipped for glory by housemate Ollie Locke and has seen his odds tumble from 10/1 to 5/1 in the build up to the final.

While voters kept Davidson in for his Nolan-inspired antics, allegiances could now switch to Dappy with the title on the line.

Ollie Locke – 10/1

The Made in Chelsea man won viewers over when standing up for himself in a row over nominations with Nolan and the posh boy will hope his will they-wont they romance with Sam Faiers will have voters picking up the phone.

Unfortunately his choice of female company has proven ill-advised with the Towie girl being something of a damp squib inside the house.

Luisa Zissman – 20/1

Despite the huge price The Apprentice runner-up looks good value to cause an upset despite resounding boos meeting her on eviction nights.

The divisive businesswoman is the very definition of human marmite but if more lovers than haters pick up the phone she could just cause an upset.

Sam Faiers – 33/1

The Towie blonde’s ‘showmance’ with Locke will prove too little too late as the Essex girl has spent too much time flying under the radar.

Too timid or uninterested to weigh in with the many house rows the 23-year-old did herself few favours by not sticking up for Locke when he was subjected to the sharp end of Zissman’s tongue and as such will be overlooked by voters.

Casey Batchelor – 50/1

Definitely worth a punt at the price given CBB viewers’ past behaviour.

Watchers of the hit show are not reluctant to make the least famous housemate the winner as evidenced by Chantelle Houghton’s success in 2006.

Batchelor will have gained plenty of sympathy for the way she was treated by Blue love rat Lee Ryan and while the glamour model remains the rank outsider, stranger things have happened in the CBB house.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
