Fatboy still favourite to wear this year’s Celebrity Big Brother crown

| 12.08.2016

They’ve been in the house for just over two weeks, and this year’s batch of celebrities certainly haven’t let us down in the entertainment department so far. But who’s heading the markets as we reach the half way point of the show?

Favourite for the crown at the moment is Ricky Norwood at 9/4, and the former Eastenders actor has been one of the favourites to take the crown since he entered the show.

In fact, the only housemate who was priced shorter than Ricky is now was Christopher Biggins – and his dismissal from the show has only strengthened Ricky’s chances of winning.

Next in the market is former Ex on the Beach star Stephen Bear. He’s made it clear in the last two weeks that his relationship with his girlfriend outside the house is well and truly over by being involved in some raunchy scenes with fellow contestant Chloe Khan.

The pair are both up for eviction tonight, however, at Chloe is a massive 1/5 favourite to leave the house.

And while the X Factor reject has seen her odds of winning drop to a staggering 100/1, apparently Bear can’t do anything wrong in the public’s eyes, and he’s 4/1 to be the fifth reality TV star to take the crown.

Speaking of reality TV stars, third-favourite to win this series is Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson – who’s been involved in a love story of her own while under BB’s watch. It’s 5/1 she follows in her on-screen MTV friend Charlotte Crosby’s shoes and walks out as queen of the house, although she too faces eviction tonight.

Rounding off our four favourites for the CBB title is Frankie Grande, and while the American is as short as 8/1 to win, his fellow compatriots in the house Renee Graziano and Aubrey O’Day are 20’s and 40’s respectively.
