Will you be backing New or Old as Celebrity Big Brother begins?

| 03.01.2017
The turn of the year can only mean one thing: the return of Celebrity Big Brother!

But, as famous faces from across the globe will be preparing to enter the famous four walls for the first OR second time, we want to know where your money is going.

So, are you backing New or Old?

If the latest reports are to be believed, then this is the list of celebrities that’ll be entering the house this evening…

Nicola McClean, Austin Armacost, Coleen Nolan, Speidi (Spencer Pratt & Heidi Montag), Calum Best, James Jordan, Jasmine Waltz, Stacy Francis, Brandon Block, Jamie O’Hara, Ray J, Bianca Gascoigne, Angie Best and James Cosmo.

But how do we pick a winner?

Of those 14 contestants, Nicola, Austin, Coleen, Spedi, Calum, James and Jasmine have all been here before – although none of them have emerged as winners. 

However, their experience in the house is likely to stand them in good stead. They know how the show works, they know what to expect, and they’ll likely work well with each other.

Calum came close to winning the show back in 2015, eventually coming third to Katie Hopkins and eventual winner Katie Price respectively. And it’s no surprise to see him priced as the 6/1 favourite right now.

The New Stars, however, have it all to do.

CBB have really set the cat amongst the pigeons with this line-up, given that Calum’s ex, Bianca, is expected to enter the house.

Thought that was enough entertainment? Throw in the fact that she’s likely to work on a team alongside his mother, Angie, and it’s safe to say we can expect to see fireworks.

And if that’s not enough drama for one series, it’s worth noting that Ray J and Stacy have – shall we say – history.

As new housemates go, it’s former Tottenham Hotspur star Jamie O’Hara who is currently leading the way in the market, while Bianca is the 25/1 rank outsider.

It’s difficult to pick a winner at this point, as it’s quite clear that producers have opted for sheer drama when compiling this year’s list of housemates.

But who do you think might go all the way?
