Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Grant Bovey is the early favourite to be evicted

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Grant Bovey is the early favourite to be evicted first from Celebrity Big Brother 2016.

Nominations took place on Sunday and James Whale and Grant were put up for eviction with the most votes each after receiving 11 and 8 nominations respectively.

It's the first head to head battle Celebrity Big Brother has seen in years, and Grant is the tip to lose out.

He's fancied for the axe at odds of 4/6, with James rated as the slight outsider at 11/8 with bookmakers Ladbrokes.

Meanwhile, at the other end, Biggins is surging ahead of his fellow housemates and now finds himself as the 2/1 favourite following further support from punters.

However, it's not out of the realms of possibility the panto star is out-foxed by Sam who has seen her odds tumble in recent days, and the former glamour model is now chalked up at just 6/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Biggins's odds are almost shortening by the hour, but punters are feeling foxy about Sam and she's starting to look like a major threat to his chances of glory."

She added: "Unfortunately for Marnie her flashing antics haven't gone down too well with the British public and her odds of winning are drifting like a barge."
