At least according to the latest odds from the bookies.
James bagged the lucrative pass to the Celebrity Big Brother final on Friday night after receiving the most votes from his housemates. The eternal immunity pass has had a direct impact on James’ odds of winning as he has further shortened as the favourite and is now as short as 6/5 from 7/4.
The Game of Thrones actor’s pass to the final was not without its consequences as he then had to nominate a housemate to face eternal nomination. James chose Heidi and Spencer, however it has surprisingly had a positive impact on their odds of winning.
Speidi are now James’ number one threat to the CBB title after they were cut to 11/2 from 13/2, suggesting they could dodge every elimination.
Coleen Nolan’s odds have been drastically slashed to 9/1 from 20/1 to win as a result of her being named as the first housemate safe, having the most votes, in Friday’s eviction.
Calum Best was the early frontrunner, but has lost his grip on the title as he continues to drift and is now 6/1 from 5/1. Kim Woodburn and Jedward both avoided elimination also after Chloe Ferry got the boot and are both 8/1 shots to win.
Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports commented “James Cosmo triumphed with four votes to win the eternal immunity pass seeing him sail straight to the final. His odds were instantly cut to 6/5 as a result but Heidi and Spencer could stand in his way. Despite facing eternal nominations Heidi and Spencer are the 11/2 second favourites and could also be in it for the long haul.”
She added “Coleen Nolan is now 9/1 from 20/1 to win CBB after being named as the first housemate saved from eviction as a result of having the most votes. It’s the second biggest turnaround we have seen in the tumultuous outright betting this week, with Kim Woodburn going from 33/1 to 8/1 in a matter of days.”
