CBB: Michelle Visage is the new favourite as Ken is second to get the axe
You may never have heard of her before last week but Michelle Visage has emerged as an early contender to win the current run of Celebrity Big Brother.
The US TV/Radio host – little known on these shores – has been backed in to just 5/2 after guiding the house through a turbulent start.
We’re just days into the series but already two housemates have been expelled, with Big Brother sending Ken Morley the same way as Jeremy Jackson.
The former Corrie star was given the boot for continuing his lewd and offensive commentary despite a harsh warning from Big Brother.
Ken – best known for playing Reg Holdsworth – joins Jeremy Jackson on the outside after the former Baywatch child star was forced to leave for opening Chloe Goodman’s robe to reveal her breast.
The two unplanned exits have potentially opened the door for new housemates to enter with East 17 singer and YouTube sensation The Wealdstone Raider among those rumoured to be on standby.
If either man has the chops to challenge Visage, however, remains to be seen.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Michelle’s the third favourite we’ve had in as many days, but her no-nonsense attitude has really struck a chord with punters and they’ve backed her off the boards.”
The American is now the clear favourite, with national irrelevance Katie Hopkins second in the betting at 3/1.
The yet to get involved but still lovable Keith Chegwin can be backed at 9/2 while professional son of a football legend Calum Best is priced at 7/1.
With Ken given the chop it seems to be a straight race between RnB singer Alexander O’Neal and the aforementioned Goodman to be the first housemate evicted.
However, with CBB struggling to keep people in this week’s eviction could be cancelled all together.
