Ricky engaged in Bear fight for Celebrity Big Brother glory
It is a two-horse race to the Celebrity Big Brother final between Bear and Ricky according to Ladbrokes, as the current series nears its end.
With the hours ticking away before the celebs are allowed to leave the house for good there’s just the small matter of deciding who will triumph as this year’s victor, and it’s currently Bear who narrowly edges favouritism at odds of 11/10, closely followed by Ricky at just 5/4.
And it’s that pair who’ve headed the market for much of the series while several housemates have tried and failed to shift the Ex on the Beach star and former Eastenders actor.
Renee looks to be the closest threat to the duo at 9/1, although her odds did fall as short as 7/2 less than a week ago.
Elsewhere there’s 16/1 on offer for Frankie to cause a shock upset at the eleventh hour.
Unfortunately for Katie and Marnie things aren’t looking too good as the pair are heavily fancied by punters to be given the axe in the next double eviction at odds of 13/8.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “The rest of the celebrities might as well go home now as it’s impossible to see anyone other than Bear or Ricky being crowned as winner.”
