Celebrity Big Brother 2016: Ricky Norwood is the favourite to win

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Ricky Norwood has been installed as the favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother 2016 following Biggins' ejection.

Despite saying and doing very little so far, the ex-Eastenders star is now the 5/2 favourite to win after shortening in from 4/1 off the back off Biggins’ departure. Samantha Fox is another key contender for the title at 3/1.

Marnie Simpson has regained some of her support from punters and has shortened into 5/1 from 7/1 as a result. Frankie Grande is the biggest mover of the weekend with his odds to win being slashed in half, from 12/1 to 6/1.

Despite being nominated to face eviction every week, Stephen Bear is not a longshot to take the title. The Ex On The Beach star is a 7/1 shot to win and has most recently seen an influx of support.

At the other end, Chloe Khan looks to have no chance at 33/1.

Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports said this afternoon: “Christopher Biggins’ departure from the house has allowed for Ricky Norwood to stake his claim as the one to beat. Ricky is now the 5/2 favourite, but has stiff competition in Sam Fox, who is breathing down his neck at 3/1.”

She added: “Frankie Grande is one to watch after seeing his odds slashed from 12/1 to 6/1 following rush of bets on Saturday, placing him in the top four of the betting. Another housemate punters seem to be a fan of is Stephen Bear, as he poses a large liability should he survive every eviction and make it to the very end.”
