Christopher Biggins is the favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother 2016 this summer, even before the launch.

Officially speaking the line up of celebrity housemates on the new series hasn't been revealed but a leaked Celebrity Big Brother cast is doing the rounds.

And based on the 13 names 'confirmed' for the show this month, bookies have installed panto favourite and Bit On The Side regular Biggins as the tip to win at this VERY early stage.

His closest competition is Geordie Shore's Marnie Simpson who is in the running to become the THIRD star of the MTV series to win CBB: Both Scotty T and Charlotte Crosby previously took the title, Scotty only back in January.

Another favourite are Gogglebox stars Chris Steed and Stephen Webb, although the pair don't appear on the leaked line up they have been heavily rumoured for the series this summer.

TOWIE's Lewis Bloor is given a 9/1 shot while Ex On he Beach Hunk Stephen Bear is at 12/1, alongside Page 3 icon Samantha Fox.

US rapper Lil' Kim is at odds of 16/1 - if she enters - while X Factor's Katie Waissel is at 22/1, just ahead of another former X Factor contestant, Chloe Khan (Chloe Mafia)

The official Celebrity Big Brother line up for the new series will be unveiled only tomorrow (Thursday) night as the live launch takes place from 9PM on Channel 5.
