Bookies Bamboozled By Biggest Big Bro Gamble
Tricia Penrose has once again been slashed to win Celebrity Big Brother after a mammoth gamble has seen her backed in from 40/1 into 2/1. William Hill have seen one way traffic for the Liverpudlian actress who is now the main challenger to Rylan the 8/13 favourite.
"Never before have we seen a Big Brother gamble like this," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "Last Wednesday, Tricia was 40/1 to win the show but now, after a sustained gamble, she is the second favourite and our best chance of getting Rylan beaten."
Celebrity Big Brother: 8/13 Rylan Clark; 2/1 Tricia Penrose; 10/1 Heidi and Spencer; 12/1 Neil Ruddock; 25/1 Frankie Dettori; 33/1 Claire Richards; 33/1 Ryan Moloney
Dancing On Ice: Matt The Man To Beat!
Matt Lapinskas is proving to be a very strong favourite to win Dancing On Ice and William Hill now rate him at 5/6 to lift the coveted trophy. The nearest challenger is Beth Tweddle at 9/4 with Gareth Thomas out to 13/2. The two outsiders are Anthea Turner & Joe Pasquale both of whom can be backed at 80/1.
"Matt is by far the best backed contestant and we need Beth or Gareth to come good or we could be facing a big payout," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
