Stephen Bear has become the second favourite to WIN Celebrity Big Brother 2016 this summer.
Bear is now rivalling favourite Ricky Norwood for the Celebrity Big Brother title after shortening into the second favourite to win, despite his eternal nomination.
Since Bear avoided elimination on Tuesday night, punters have been backing the Ex On The Beach star to no end, resulting is his odds being cut further from 5/1 into 7/2.
Ricky Norwood continues to head the betting at 9/4, but is in danger of losing the top spot should the support for Bear continue. Samantha Fox has drifted out to 5/1 from 4/1, placing her alongside Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson.
Frankie Grande has made his bid for the title after his odds were slashed in half. The YouTube star and brother of singer Ariana Grande is now priced at 6/1 from 12/1 to win.
The rest of the Celebrity Big Brother housemates appear to be outsiders as they feature in the lower half of the betting ranging from odds of 18/1 to 40/1.
Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports commented today: “It looks as though Stephen Bear is set to become the next Helen Wood, having started his Celebrity Big Brother journey as one of the most hated housemates but turning things around and becoming one to watch.”
She added: “Punters are confident Bear has what it takes to go all the way, despite facing each eviction as a result of being eternally nominated, and have made him a large liability for BoyleSports.”
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
