Andrew Cruickshanks is the early favourite to steal £15,000 of the Big Brother prize money.

In Friday evening's highlights, we saw four Second Chance Housemates enter the house and Big Brother explained to the house that because Andrew, Sam, Simone and Sue missed out on their first chance of becoming housemates, they are not eligible to win Big Brother.


The second chance housemates may not be able to go all the way and win Big Brother, but there is £15,000 of the prize money up for grabs for the one who stays in the house the longest.

Scottish housemate Andrew leads the charge for the second chance housemates at 10/11 to be the last one standing and walk away with a chunk of the original housemates’ prize money.

Sue, who has been cosying up to the ever popular Ellie since entering the house, is next in the betting at 2/1. Sam may have missed out on his chance to enter the house during the Blind Date inspired task, but he has finally crossed the threshold and is third in the betting at 11/2 to last the longest.

Simone is the bottom of the betting at 10/1 to win the £15,000 as the original housemates have already given her a wide berth.

Meanwhile, of the original housemates, Chanelle remains the favourite to win at 5/2 with Raph following closely behind at 10/3 and Ellie hot on their heels at 7/2.

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “Andrew is already being tipped to come out on top of the second chance housemates £15,000 better off as he is priced as the very clear 10/11 favourite. His only real cause for concern is Sue who is currently priced at 2/1.”


She added: “Things have remained the same in the outright betting as Chanelle continues to head the betting at 5/2, but we sense a power shift coming as punters continue to show strong support for both Raph and Ellie.”

Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
