Kirstie Alley shows the way as favourite for Celebrity Big Brother

Actress Kirstie Alley is storming ahead as the clear favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

Gary Busey is the only American to have triumphed in the 17-year history of the show.

But controversial former Cheers star Alley looks set to join him at odds of just 6/5.

She’s narrowly in-front of ex-Coronation Street favourite Ryan Thomas at 5/2, with The Only Way Is Essex’s Dan Osborne at 5/1.

There’s then a big jump to Nick Leeson at 14/1, before a drop back to a whole host of names at even bigger prices, including Jermaine Pennant, who can be backed at 100/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “It seems that punters think Kirstie’s the best of a bad bunch in there, and her odds have tumbled in the last few days, leaving her as the clear favourite for glory.”
