Austin Armacost tops betting to win Celebrity Big Brother
Austin Armacost is the 5-1 favourite with leading bookmaker Coral to win Celebrity Big Brother ahead of the launch of the show this evening. Mark Labbett from The Chase is second best at 6-1 to be the last contestant in the house, while Speidi (Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag) are 8-1 to be the first couple to win the show in their second attempt.
Coral is offering a number of specials on this year’s series. The firm is odds-on at 10-11 that any contestant walks out before they are voted off and 6-4 that there is a romance inside the house.
“The last time Austin was in the Big Brother house he finished runner-up in 2015, however, we make him the favourite to go one step further this time around. The Beast from The Chase, Mark Labbett, has been popular in the early betting, as have Speidi who caused a huge stir in 2013,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“The betting suggests at least one contestant will walk out before they are voted off and we have taken a number of bets this year on there being a new romance inside the house,” added Hill.
