Rylan Favourite For Big Bro But Beware The Favourites Curse!
Tricia and Frankie left the Big Brother house and for the former, a massive gamble on her failed to pay off. When she avoided eviction last week, Tricia's odds plummet from 40/1 to 2/1 and she became the main challenger to Rylan (whose odds drifted considerably during this time). Now the X-Factor star is 1/7 from 8/13 with Heidi and Spencer the 8/1 second favourite.
While Rylan is the hot favourite, recent CBB history is littered with odds-on favourites being beaten left, right and centre. Perhaps the biggest shock came when Verne Troyer (who was 1/25) was beaten by Ulrika Johnson although in recent years, 1/5 Jedward were pipped to the crown by Paddy Doherty and 1/3 Frankie Cocozza was defeated by Denise.
"There are many who think that Rylan has this sewn up already but do not count your chickens just yet as CBB is renowned for shock results," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Big Brother winner: 1/7 Rylan Clark; 8/1 Hedi and Spencer; 9/1 Neil Ruddock; 20/1 Claire Richards; 33/1 Ryan Moloney
