Bookies bashed as Tara exits the Big Brother house!
Tara became the third celebrity to leave the Big Brother House in what was a nightmare result for bookmakers. Tara was the odds on favourite to leave the house and was well backed right up until the moment the result was announced. As she left the house, William Hill paid out a five figure sum.
"We had an inkling that Tara was going to go following the gamble that took place throughout the duration of Friday, but in reality it was not a real game changer as she was 80/1 to win the show," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Kerry is the Even money favourite to win the show ahead of Jedward at 2/1. Paddy is 7/2 while Amy Childs is 14/1.
"All the way through the show there has been a power struggle between Kerry and Jedward, who have shared the lead countless times over the last two weeks," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "But over the last few days, Kerry has held her position as favourite and Paddy has also entered the equation. We are in for a very tight finale."
Big Brother Outright: 1/1 Kerry; 2/1 Jedward; 7/2 Paddy; 14/1 Amy Childs; 18/1 Lucien; 40/1 Darryn; 100/1 Bobby
