Can Anne upstage Courtney? Bookmakers hoping not…

February 1st, 2018 News & Events, Press Release, Television

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 will be decided this weekend, and it is a two-horse race between Courtney Act and Anne Widdecombe.

Australian entertainer Act has been considered the front-runner to win since entering the house on the opening weekend – but the same can’t be said of Widdicombe.

The former MP was the rank outsider at 100/1 – but her odds have been coming in and in, and she was even favourite last week – and the Bookmakers are dreading her to win, as she would make history as the biggest outsider to win a reality TV series.

“Bookmakers certainly feel Anne has a chance, and considering how many reality shows we have now – to be the biggest outsider to win would be some feat,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“But let’s get this right, Anne is a serous threat – Bookmakers all over are reporting that they will incur some major losses if Anne was to win.

“Courtney is now odds-on again, with Anne just a bit longer – the other contenders are just making up the numbers, from what the odds are telling us.”

Selected Celebrity Big Brother Odds:
4/7 Courtney Act
7/4 Ann Widdecombe
16/1 Shane Lynch
22/1 Jess Impiazzi
66/1 Wayne Sleep
