Three Early Frontrunners For CBB Crown After First Night

As the Celebrities spent their first night in the Big Brother House, the odds of each of them were fluctuating wildly at bookies, William Hill. Original favourite, Shaun Williamson, has drifted ever so slightly from 7/2 to 9/2 meaning that he is no longer the stand alone market leader but co-favourite of three with Sandi Bogle (originally 10/1) and Sam Thompson (originally 14/1).


Those who have not fared as well after the first 12 hours or so of betting have been Jemma Lucy and Marissa Jade whose odds have drifted from 7/1 and 14/1 to 25/1 and 33/1 respectively.


“When the celebrities first go into the house, it is pretty much guess work on our part to work out who the favourites and outsiders should be but the first hour or so lets us and the public see their personalities and make a more informed decision as to how they will do on the show,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
