Ollie Locke and Sam Faiers are already the two front-runners to land this year’s Celebrity Big Brother crown and their odds could shorten further if a possible romance is allowed to blossom.
Meanwhile, Towie bombshell Faiers isn’t too far behind her television rival with odds of 7/2 available on her taking home the title.
And following Ollie’s admission that he has taken a shine to Sam it would appear that the pair are set to see their popularity grow further if they’re granted more exposure in front of the cameras.
This latest revelation was the result of a recent task where Sam was instructed by Big Brother to tell one other housemate that she fancied them.
She chose Ollie who had initially outlined to the trickster that he was rather keen on her, prompting Sam’s response and a potential ripple effect that may be about to capture even more headlines should any evidence of a real connection emerge.
However, at least he won’t have to worry about the threat of eviction for the time being with Liz Jones, Jim Davidson, Jasmine Waltz and Luisa Zissman all up for an early exit from the show.
Edgy comic Davidson had emerged as an unlikely outsider to win the competition and at 4/1 is still not being discounted from doing so.
But recent rifts within the house have left the former Big Break presenter somewhat isolated.
Even supposed close ally Lionel Blair contributed to the seven nominations he received when the celebrities were asked to choose who to put up for the public vote.
