Another busy weekend in one of the most argumentative Celebrity Big Brother houses in history saw two housemates leave – one by eviction and one of his own accord – and another arrive.
Friday saw glamour model Chloe Goodman become the first housemate to be evicted this series and she was duly replaced by Katie Price.
The model formerly known as Jordan quickly dispatched Perez, Nadia and Cami Li to the gilded cage to cool off and end their ceaseless bickering.
Price then revealed the truth about her husband’s recent affair with two of her best friends – as the housemates listened aghast – and has since seen her odds to win the show slashed after a string of bets.
Ladbrokes have cut the odds on ‘Pricey’ wining the show outright from 8/1 to just 5/1 after the UK went on a six-figure betting frenzy.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Bookies nationwide were flooded with bets from the moment Katie Price walked down the steps to the house.
“She appears to have won the public over after the first night and she now looks a certainty to make the final at the very least.”
Shortly after Price’s arrival, RnB crooner Alexander O’Neal decided to leave the house too, not wanting to spend any more time with professional wind-up merchant Perez Hilton.
The showbiz blogger has been a whirlwind of annoyance and contradiction in the house but has had his odds cut from 66/1 to 20/1 over the weekend and there is a chance viewers could start to feel sympathy for the loudmouthed American.
With megabitch Katie Hopkins and aggressive Cami Li leading most of the other housemates in a campaign to “Get Perez Out” we are on the verge of seeing the bully become the victim.
The chants from outside the house hint that Hilton’s time will soon be up, but should Hopkins and co continue the voting public could have a change of heart.
