Widdicombe could be biggest reality gamble of all time

January 15th, 2018 News & Events, Press Release, Television

Anne Widdicombe has the Bookmakers running scared after emerging as one of the popular housemates in Celebrity Big Brother.

Australian drag artist Courtney Act remains the odds-on favourite to win, but former MP Widdicombe is proving hugely popular with the public.

After the launch show, Widdicombe was a huge outsider at 100/1 and now she is second favourite.

“We did suggest at the start of CBB that there could be some major changes in the market, yes since Courtney went in – she has proven popular with the public and the Bookmakers – but Widdicombe is the major mover,” confirmed OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“Widdicombe is now around 6/1 second favourite, and this would be the biggest upset in reality TV history were she to take the crown having been such an outsider to begin with.

“Aside from Widdicombe, the ladies are not figuring high in the betting with the Amanda Barrie next in the markets at over 20/1.”

Selected odds CBB:
Courtney Act 5/6
Ann Widdecombe 5/1
Andrew Brady 7/1
Shane Lynch 16/1
John Barnes 18/1
Amanda Barrie 22/1
Jess Impiazzi 22/1
Dapper Laughs 25/1
Maggie Oliver 25/1
Malika Haqq 28/1
Rachel Johnson 28/1
Ashley James 80/1
Ginuwine 100/1
Jonny Mitchell 100/1
