Dancing On Ice Betting Update – Week Six

Jorgie Porter is now the odds-on favourite with the bookmakers to win Series Seven of Dancing on Ice.

The 24-year-old received a series-best score of 26.0 from the judging panel, three clear points from her nearest rival on the night, Chico.

Former favourite Matthew Wolfenden could muster only a score of 22.0 and despite clear skating ability, needs to improve if he is to beat Jorgie.

Rosemary Conley became the sixth contestant eliminated from the show after facing Chemmy Alcott in the bottom two skate-off.

The 65-year-old could only muster a judge’s score of 15.5, down on her 17.0 series best last week and positioned her as ninth out of 10 on the leader board. Chemmy finished seventh but lack of support in the public vote made her skate again.

All three judges voted to save Chemmy and send the oldest remaining contestant home.

Here is how the nine remaining contestants fair in the betting:

Jorgie Porter

Hollyoaks actress Jorgie has raced ahead in the betting and is now the clear favourite to win the show ahead of both Matthew and Chico.

Best Odds: 1.8 (Sky Bet)

Matthew Wolfenden

Emmerdale actor Matthew is now available at much longer odds than a couple of weeks ago. His score of 22.0 last night put him third for the show overall, behind both Jorgie and Chico and marginally ahead of Sebastien.

Best Odds: 4.0 (Betfred)

Chico

Reality television personality Chico is giving the show all he’s got and he finished week six with the second-highest judge’s score of the night. His score of 23.0 was his series best so far.

Best Odds: 7.5 (Paddy Power)

Sebastien Foucan

Freerunner Sebastien was awarded the fourth best score of the night and is fourth in the betting. He’ll be there of thereabouts come the end of the series but is unlikely to finish higher than fourth overall.

Best Odds: 11.0 (Sky Bet)

Jennifer Ellison

Actress and glamour model Jennifer suffered a blow to her head from her skate blade performing a “scorpian kick” but finished her routine and was awarded a series best score of 19.0. Miles behind the leading contenders and her odds reflect that.

Best Odds: 34.0 (Betfred)

Chemmy Alcott

Chemmy found herself in the bottom two for the first time this series despite three other skaters awarded lower judge’s scores overall. Support for her appears to be dwindling.

Best Odds: 34.0 (bet365)

Andy Whyment

Andy skated reasonably well last night but as usual does not display any great ability. He’s clinging onto his place in the show and could find himself in the bottom two skate-off next week.

Best Odds: 67.0 (Paddy Power)

Heidi Range

Singer Heidi received the lowest judge’s score of the evening – just 14.0. A slip on the ice cost her points and it is unlikely she will remain in the show much longer.

Best Odds: 81.0 (bet365)

Sam Nixon

After facing the bottom two skate-off last week, Sam performed much better last night and earned a respectable score of 19.5 – positioning him fifth out of the 10 remaining skaters. Still the bookmakers outsider to win.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Sky Bet)

Dancing On Ice Betting Update – Week Four

Corey Feldman became the fourth contestant to leave the show after losing in the skate-off to Charlene Tilton.

Hollywood actor Feldman was the rank outsider with the bookmakers to win the show and could not see off the challenge of Tilton, who was in the bottom two for the second week running.

Week four of the show saw a “duel” theme where the contestants were put together in pairs with other couples depending on last weeks leaderboard finish.

The judges would give one skating couple immunity while the others would need to rely on the public vote to keep them out of the bottom two.

Feldman was up against skier Chemmy Alcott while former Dallas actress Tilton received no votes from the judges who all voted in favour of Sugababe Heidi Range.

Here is how the 11 remaining contestants fair in the betting:

Matthew Wolfenden

Emmerdale actor Matthew can be backed at slightly better odds than last week, despite beating closest rival Jorgie in their duel. He received two out of the three judges votes to win immunity from the public vote.

Best Odds: 2.25 (Sky Bet)

Jorgie Porter

Hollyoaks actress Jorgie has seen her odds shorten slightly from last week and at present looks the only contestant likely to win the show ahead of Matthew.

Best Odds: 2.62 (bet365)

Chico

Reality television personality Chico is making a good fight of it and is now the strongest contender behind Matthew and Jorgie according to the bookies. He faced Sam in the duel and won votes from all three judges.

Best Odds: 9.0 (Ladbrokes)

Sebastien Foucan

The odds on freerunner Sebastien winning the show have drifted since last week, despite him winning all three judges votes after skating against Jennifer. He needs to improve next week if he is to challenge Chico for third place.

Best Odds: 15.0 (Coral)

Jennifer Ellison

The actress and glamour girl sees her odds drift each week. She failed to win a single judges vote after her duel against Sebastien and looks weaker in the competition as the weeks progress.

Best Odds: 23.0 (Coral)

Chemmy Alcott

Chemmy won all three of the judges votes but that means little considering she skated against the hopeless Corey. Like Jennifer, her odds drift as each week goes by.

Best Odds: 34.0 (Coral)

Sam Nixon

Television presenter Sam looks a decent enough skater but like last week, support for him in the betting market continues to dwindle. Failed to get a single judges vote following his duel with Chico which didn’t help.

Best Odds: 67.0 (Paddy Power)

Heidi Range

Singer Heidi continues to hang on in there but will be heartened after earning three out of three votes from the judges after duelling with bottom-two contestant Charlene.

Best Odds: 67.0 (bet365)

Andy Whyment

Like Heidi, Coronation Street actor Andy keeps his place in the show but not due to any great ability. He earned two out of three judges votes against bookmakers outsider Rosemary. Could be in the bottom two next week.

Best Odds: 67.0 (Ladbrokes)

Charlene Tilton

Actress Charlene is a survivor in this show and faced the skate-off for the second week running. She has seen off both Mark and Corey but if she comes up against anybody half-competent, her time will probably be up.

Best Odds: 151.0 (bet365)

Rosemary Conley

The rank outsider according to the bookmakers but appears to have some support from the voting public. The weight loss expert may well survive another week.

Best Odds: 201.0 (Sky Bet)

Frankie Cocozza Favourite In Celebrity Big Brother Final Betting

Frankie Cocozza is the firm favourite with the bookmakers to win this series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The teenage X Factor “bady boy” has grown in popularity during his stay in the house and appears to be liked by everybody bar twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Frankie is now 2.5 (Ladbrokes) favourite to win which would be a remarkable turnaround for the 19-year-old.

Perennial bookmakers favourite for eviction, Nicola McLean was given the boot last night while Romeo was the second person to leave in the double eviction show.

Nicola was met by a chorus of boos from the audience upon her exit and was barracked continuously during her interview with host Brian Dowling.

Romeo was cheered and appeared happy enough to be evicted, stating he felt it was “his time” to leave. We felt so too and predicted he would leave in Wednesday’s show because he had nothing left to give.

This is how the other remaining four housemates fair in the betting:

Denise Welch

Must be getting the sympathy vote to edge into second favourite in the betting. Denise is undoubtedly a kind person with a heart of gold but she has a lot of issues which are magnified by alcohol consumption. The talk show host is set to earn a packet discussing them when she leaves the house but whether her participation will do her career any long term favours remains to be seen.

To Win Outright: 3.5 (Boylesports)

Gareth Thomas

Former bookmakers favourite Gareth is out to third in the betting. Viewers have not seen much of the former Welsh rugby hero in recent edited shows due to the focus on arguments which he refrained from getting involved in. A popular character with all the housemates – he received just one nomination compared to 13 in total received by Georgia, Michael and Karissa & Kristina, but he may not have the beating of Frankie when it comes to the voting public.

To Win Outright: 4.5 (Bet Victor)

Karissa and Kristina Shannon

The former Playboy models know they are unpopular with the voting public but their self confidence/arrogance will make them believe they have a chance of winning after surviving Wednesday’s eviction. First eviction material for the final show on Friday night?

To Win Outright: 15.0 (Betfred)

Michael Madsen

Hollywood actor Michael has done very well to reach the final after looking like first eviction material when he first entered the house. He has taken Frankie under his wing and offered the youngster a lot of advice and support over the past weeks. If Frankie wins, some of that will be down to the Reservoir Dogs star.

To Win Outright: 15.0 (Sky Bet)

Frankie Cocozza Or Gareth Thomas To Win Celebrity Big Brother

In a huge change of public sentiment, former X Factor “bad boy” Frankie Cocozza is joint favourite in the Celebrity Big Brother betting alongside Gareth Thomas to win the show.

Frankie, the youngest housemate in this year’s series, was as big as 13.0 to win the show after his early behaviour in the show appeared to lose public support, but he is now a best-priced 2.5 (Sky Bet) to walk out a winner.

Former rugby player Gareth Thomas was leading the betting this past week but has now slipped to second favourite at a best price of 2.75 (Bet Victor).

Two evictions are set to take place on Wednesday’s show. Yet again, Nicola McLean is the odds-on favourite to leave at 1.73 (Ladbrokes). The glamour model has been the favourite to go when eligible for the last three evictions but has seen off Georgia Salpa, Kirk Norcross and Natalie Cassidy so far.

This is how the remaining seven housemates fair in the betting:

Frankie Cocozza

Edged into the bookmakers favourite slot to win the show outright. Frankie hasn’t changed much during his time in the house. He’s still smoking, drinking, masturbating and trying his hardest to get off with the twins. But, the public are now warming to him. He stuck up for Denise during another drunken fallout in the house and told Nicola straight she had her “tongue up the girls’ [twins] arse” and that she had changed since Natalie Cassidy’s eviction. Good lad.

To Win Outright: 2.5 (Sky Bet)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 29.0 (Sky Bet)

Gareth Thomas

A genuinely nice bloke who has displayed vulnerability and naivety during his time in the house. He was hilarious during the hoax Japanese chat show task. Gareth was the favourite to win the show for well over a week but has since been eclipsed by Frankie.

To Win Outright: 2.75 (Bet Victor)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 34.0 (Ladbrokes)

Denise Welch

Chat show host Denise does not appear to be having a good time in the house. When alcohol is consumed, she goes berserk. Days after frolicking topless in the hot tub with Frankie, she attempted to pull down Karissa’s pyjama bottoms and was involved in an argument with Nicola. A slew of television appearances and magazine interviews enabling her to talk about her “demons” are surely in the pipeline.

To Win Outright: 8.0 (Sky Bet)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 7.5 (Sky Bet)

Michael Madsen

Actor Madsen is doing his best to separate himself from the rest of the housemates unless he is forced to participate, such as in tasks. Has a bizarre relationship with Denise which varies depending on how much alcohol has been consumed. Looked a good bet to win at one stage but is now equally likely to be evicted on Wednesday as he is to emerge victorious.

To Win Outright: 10.0 (bet365)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 10.0 (Bet Victor)

Romeo

Rapper Romeo has done his best to play it cool throughout the show. He’s probably just grateful to be on television again and doesn’t want to blow his chance of a comeback. He’s managed to avoid eviction so far but may leave on Wednesday as he hasn’t really got anything else to give apart from sitting around in the garden, wearing his coat and smoking.

To Win Outright: 17.0 (bet365)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 9.0 (Ladbrokes)

Karissa and Kristina Shannon

The former Playboy models believe they can win the show but are being shown up for the devious, two-faced women they are. They are prepared to form an alliance with anybody else in the house to avoid nomination but are blissfully unaware there will be no more. They really dislike Frankie which will do them no favours now he is the favourite to win.

To Win Outright: 21.0 (Sky Bet)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 7.0 (Ladbrokes)

Nicola McLean

Former Page 3 model Nicola has been the rank outsider to win the show for weeks and the odds-on favourite for eviction every time she has been up. But, she has survived at the expense of three other housemates. Nicola does not come across as a very nice person but could survive until the final if the public want a few more days of her causing arguments in the house.

To Win Outright: 101.0 (bet365)
First Eviction On Wednesday: 1.73 (Ladbrokes)

Dancing On Ice Betting Update – Week Three

Actors Matthew Wolfenden and Jorgie Porter are the duo to beat in the 2012 run of Dancing On Ice.

The third show of the series saw all 13 remaining contestants take to the ice and the judges could not separate either of the favourites. Both Matthew and Jorgie received overall judges scores of 21.5 – the highest on the night and of the series so far.

Emmerdale actor Matthew remains the bookmakers favourite at a best price of 2.2 (bet365) while Hollyoaks actress Jorgie can be backed at slightly longer odds of 2.75 (Ladbrokes).

Television presenter Mark Rhodes became the third contestant to leave the show after the judges voted to save former Dallas actress Charlene Tilton in the skate-off. Mark had struggled but did not receive the worst score of the night – that dubious honour went to Corey Feldman.

Here is how the other 10 contestant figure in the Dancing On Ice betting:

Chico

Reality television personality Chico has seen his odds shorten a little since last week after receiving a judges score of 18.0. At the moment, he looks top in the “best of the rest” betting behind Matthew and Jorgie.

Best Odds: 8.5 (bet365)

Sebastien Foucan

Freerunner Sebastien remains a strong contender and his odds have lengthened by a single point since last week. Like Chico, he also received a score of 18.0 from the judges.

Best Odds: 11.0 (Coral)

Jennifer Ellison

Former Brookside actress Jennifer performed with an injury last night and was visibly in pain. However, she was the third contestant to earn a score of 18.0 from the judges but her odds have drifted since last week.

Best Odds: 17.0 (bet365)

Chemmy Alcott

Professional skier Chemmy was a disappointment with a score of just 10.5 – on a par with the eliminated Mark Rhodes. She appears to be going backwards in terms of progress but is still middling in the betting odds, such is the lack of real quality from the rest of the contestants.

Best Odds: 26.0 (Coral)

Andy Whyment

Coronation Street actor Andy earned a respectable score of 14.0 but plenty of other contestant scored higher – including Charlene who needed to beat Mark in the skate-off to remain in the show. Bottom two material when Corrie fans get fed up of him.

Best Odds: 51.0 (Ladbrokes)

Sam Nixon

Sam is proving to be a decent enough skater, unlike his on-screen partner Mark, but he doesn’t appear to have much support in the betting. Should remain in the show for a few weeks yet.

Best Odds: 51.0 (Paddy Power)

Heidi Range

Singer Heidi gave a much better performance than in week one but she is still some way behind the stronger skaters in the competition. Like Sam, she should be safe for a few more weeks.

Best Odds: 51.0 (Bet Victor)

Charlene Tilton

Not the worst score of the night but has little support from the voting public. It would not be a shock if she finds herself in the skate-off yet again next week needing the judges votes to keep her in.

Best Odds: 126.0 (bet365)

Rosemary Conley

Slimming expert Rosemary appears to be on borrowed time. She received a judges score of 10.5 – the same as Chemmy and the eliminated Mark. Bottom two material – possibly in a skate-off against Charlene next week.

Best Odds: 151.0 (Paddy Power)

Corey Feldman

Hollywood actor Corey received the worst score of the night by some distance – squeezing an 8.0 from the judges. However, he appears to have some public support and could see off a few more contestants yet.

Best Odds: 201.0 (Paddy Power)

Nicola McLean Favourite For Fourth Celebrity Big Brother Eviction

Nicola McLean finds herself favourite for eviction in Celebrity Big Brother betting as all but one housemate faces the public vote this Friday.

Former Page 3 model Nicola is available at a best priced 2.0 (Coral) to leave the house while current bookmakers favourite to win the show, ex-rugby star Gareth Thomas, is the only housemate safe from eviction.

Minutes after Georgia Salpa became the third celebrity evicted from this year’s series, the remaining nine housemates were required to give their nominations for Friday’s show in front of eachother.

Anyone nominated was put up for eviction and former Welsh international Gareth was the only celebrity not to receive a single nomination.

Gareth to win is currently a best-priced 4.0 (Bet Victor) to win the show outright while Nicola remains the rank outsider at 101.0 (Boylesports).

Here are the odds on the remaining seven celebrities:

Kirk Norcross

Kirk’s popularity with the betting public appears to decrease by the day but he remains relatively safe from nominations. Georgia being out of the house means one less for him to receive and in the last round of voting, only the twins nominated him. Unlikely to leave this Friday despite being second favourite to do so.

Evicted On Friday: 3.5 (Paddy Power)
To Win Outright: 41.0 (Sportingbet)

Karissa and Kristina Shannon

Increasingly unpopular inside the house, six out of eight housemates who could vote for the twins on Wednesday night, did vote for them. They believe the public will save them up their put up for eviction and that will be put to the test this Friday… and if they survive, on the next eviction night!

Evicted On Friday: 11.0 (Ladbrokes)
To Win Outright: 17.0 (Boylesports)

Michael Madsen

Like the twins, Michael received six nominations from a possible eight and there must be more to his spat with Denise than we see on the edited shows. The highlights portray Denise as somebody who is becoming increasingly unhinged while Michael appears to just want to be left alone.

Evicted On Friday: 15.0 (bet365)
To Win Outright: 8.0 (Betfred)

Denise Welch

On the verge of cracking up. She cannot seem to leave Michael alone and his pushing his toleration to the limit. Denise is also getting more reckless after each night of alcohol being downed, which culminated in her going topless in the hot tub with Frankie during his birthday celebrations.

Evicted On Friday: 17.0 (Paddy Power)
To Win Outright: 17.0 (Ladbrokes)

Romeo

Doing nothing wrong but the knives are out for the former So Solid Crew member. Frankie only nominated him on Wednesday because “nobody else would” while Natalie and Nicola previously considered nominating him because he was not as loud and chaotic as other housemates. Nicola leaving would help him remain in the house.

Evicted On Friday: 17.0 (Ladbrokes)
To Win Outright: 10.0 (Sportingbet)

Natalie Cassidy

Received just one nomination – from the twins. Natalie remains popular in the house and with the voting public although she has slipped into third in the running behind Gareth and steamer Frankie.

Evicted On Friday: 34.0 (Paddy Power)
To Win Outright: 5.0 (bet365)

Frankie Cocozza

The turnaround in Frankie’s popularity among punters is remarkable. He is just as annoying in the house as the day he went in and is being portrayed as a serial masturbator in the edited highlights. However, his odds on winning outright continue to shorten…

Evicted On Friday: 51.0 (Ladbrokes)
To Win Outright: 4.3 (Coral)

Georgia Salpa Favourite For Third Celebrity Big Brother Eviction

Georgia Salpa is the bookmaker’s favourite to be third person evicted from this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

The Irish model received eight votes from the nine possible she was able to receive and is a best priced 1.25 (Sky Bet) to leave the house on Wednesday night.

She faces grumpy actor Michael Madsen, who was favourite to win the show briefly last week but is now fourth in the running.

Georgia hasn’t received much coverage in the edited shows but according to her fellow housemates, it’s because she doesn’t talk much or get involved in the day-to-day activities. She has struck up a bond with Karissa and Kristina but that is unlikely to save her this week.

Madsen had not been portrayed will this week and got into a major argument with Denise Welch. This did not go down well with the rest of the house and six nominations put him up for eviction.

However, the edited show last night saw him make up somewhat with Denise which suggests to the voting public that he’s “not that bad after all”. Madsen may have blown his chance of winning outright, but he should be safe this week.

If you want to back him to leave instead of Georgia, he’s available at a best priced 4.5 (Boylesports).

Michael is available to win outright at 7.0 (Bet Victor) while Georgia can be backed at 67.0 (Paddy Power).

Here is a betting update on the rest of the Celebrity Big Brother contestants:

Gareth Thomas

Former rugby player Gareth has edged into pole position to win the competition. He seems to get on with everybody in the house and does not get involved in the bitching-fests that occur on a nightly basis. Always there for the other housemates when they need him and a motivator to get them through difficult tasks.

Best Odds: 3.75 (Coral)

Natalie Cassidy

The former favourite has slipped in the betting after displaying a slightly bitchy side. The actress is still well liked in the house but she may no longer have what it takes to win.

Best Odds: 4.5 (bet365)

Romeo

A potential dark horse to win. Romeo goes about his business confidently and quietly and is yet to receive a single nomination. Like Gareth, he is there for his other housemates when they need him and doesn’t get involved in the nastier side of life in the house.

Best Odds: 5.5 (Betfred)

Frankie Cocozza

Won immunity from nominations this week after winning a task with Nicola which keeps him in the house for another few days at least.His “bromance” with Kirk may lead to his downfall.

Best Odds: 8.5 (Boylesports)

Denise Welch

Appears to have blown her chances of winning after her spat with Michael. She is a complete nightmare after a few drinks and then bleats to Big Brother in the Diary Room about how she thought everyone “gets her”. We all “get” it, Denise, you can’t take your drink.

Best Odds: 15.0 (Sky Bet)

Karissa and Kristina Shannon

The twins spend most of their time bitching about either Kirk or Nicola and talking about how hot they are. Sure, they are nice to look at but there’s not much else beyond that. They will lose a close ally when Georgia is evicted.

Best Odds: 19.0 (Bet Victor)

Kirk Norcross

Becoming increasingly unpopular and arguably straying into “sex pest” territory. After failing to impress the twins, Kirk has been all over both Georgia and the evicted Natasha like a cheap suit. When his advances are not reciprocated, he is rude to those who spurned him. Childish.

Best Odds: 34.0 (Betfred)

Nicola McLean

I still can’t see why glamour model Nicola was kept in the house ahead of Natasha last weekend. Even if she hadn’t won immunity from being nominated this week she may have survived due to the unpopularity of Georgia and the situation between Michael and Denise. Still a rank outsider and possible weekend eviction fodder.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Ladbrokes)

Matthew Wolfenden New Dancing On Ice Betting Favourite

Pre-show favourite Matthew Wolfenden soared back to top of the Dancing On Ice betting after receiving a judges score of 21.5 – the highest of the series so far.

The Emmerdale actor has seen his odds ease to a best priced 2.25 (Ladbrokes) after being available as high as 4.0 last week before he took to the ice.

However, last night’s show wasn’t all good news for soap actors. Laila Morse, best known for her portrayal of “Big Mo” in Eastenders was voted off the show after the judges opted to save Corey Feldman in the skate-off.

Here is how the rest of the contestants line up:

Jorgie Porter

Last week’s favourite slips to second in the betting. The Hollyoaks actress is a good skater but has it all to do if she is going to beat Matthew.

Best Odds: 3.75 (Betfred)

Chico

A big surprise. The cheesy reality television star was as big as 29.0 last week but proved what a good skater he is last night. A latecomer to the show, he hasn’t had anywhere near as much practice as the other contestants and is set to improve.

Best Odds: 10.0 (Coral)

Sebastien Foucan

Another who has seen his odds shorten is “freerunner” Sebastien. He earned a judge’s score of 17.5 and is another strong contender in the competition.

Best Odds: 10.0 (Bet Victor)

Jennifer Ellison

Actress and pin-up Jennifer saw her odds lengthen from last week after she skated for the first time. A score of 15.5 is a respectable start, but she is already playing catch-up to the likes of Matthew and Jorgie.

Best Odds: 12.0 (Ladbrokes)

Chemmy Alcott

Another whose odds have lengthened. Skier Chemmy is a decent skater but she will have to up her performance when she skates again next week.

Best Odds: 13.0 (Paddy Power)

Andy Whyment

Coronation Street actor Andy is the beginning of a huge gap in the betting odds. Effectively there are two groups of skaters – those with a realistic chance of winning and those holding out for a spot on the show for as long as possible. Andy should be safe enough for another couple of weeks at least.

Best Odds: 34.0 (Betfred)

Sam Nixon

Interestingly, television presenter Sam earned the same judge’s score as Jennifer Ellison, yet his odds on winning are huge in comparison. There could be a little value in backing him because if he improves, he could become a dark horse to win the competition.

Best Odds: 34.0 (Boylesports)

Heidi Range

After just one session on the ice, Sugababe Heidi is classed as one of the no-hopers available to back at three digits. May survive another couple of weeks but already just making up the numbers.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Betfred)

Charlene Tilton

Despite a decent performance last week, Dallas veteran Charlene has not been given much hope of winning by the bookmakers.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Paddy Power)

Corey Feldman

Found himself in the bottom two last night after just one performance. He wasn’t as terrible as his training montage’s suggested but he’s not going to last long on the show.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Sky Bet)

Rosemary Conley

An outside bet last week before skating and after taking to the ice entrepreneur Rosemary is an even longer shot to win the competition. Bottom two material next week.

Best Odds: 101.0 (bet365)

Mark Rhodes

The rank outsider to win, television presenter Mark can barely stand on the ice. He may make it beyond next week purely for comedy value but he is already on borrowed time.

Best Odds: 126.0 (Bet Victor)

Nicola McLean Favourite For Second Celebrity Big Brother Eviction

Nicola McLean is set to be the second eviction during the 2012 run of Celebrity Big Brother.

The former Page 3 model remains the rank outsider to win the competition at 101.0 (Coral) but is the bookmaker’s favourite to leave the house next at a best price of 1.44 (Paddy Power).

Andrew Stone became the first celebrity evicted from the house last night and the contestant who was spared, Georgia Salpa, was immediately called to the Diary Room.

The underwear model was put on the spot to name two contestants who be put up for eviction on Friday.

After much prompting from Big Brother, she chose Natasha Giggs and Nicola McLean.

Both women appeared shocked and disappointed to be named and like Georgia in the days before the first eviction, will try and win over the voting public by any means necessary.

Neither Natasha nor Nicola appeared to have much support from the public attending the live show as a chorus of boos rang out as each name was announced by presenter Brian Dowling.

However, Natasha has been portrayed in a more positive light during the edited shows and there is a possibility of a storyline involving actor Michael Madsen.

Natasha can be backed at a best-priced 2.75 (bet365) to be evicted but at this stage it looks like Nicola will face another reality television exit.

Celebrity Big Brother Winner

Former Eastenders actress Natalie Cassidy remains the bookmakers favourite to win the show. The 28-year-old can be backed at a best-priced 3.25 (Betfred).

Other Celebrity Big Brother Winners:

  • Denise Welch @ 4.5 (Ladbrokes)
  • Gareth Thomas @ 7.5 (Sportingbet)
  • Michael Madsen @ 8.0 (Sky Bet)
  • Romeo @ 9.0 (Bet Victor)
  • Frankie Cocozza @ 13.0 (bet365)
  • Kirk Norcross @ 26.0 (Betfred)
  • Karissa and Kristina Shannon @ 41.0 (Sky Bet)
  • Natasha Giggs @ 41.0 (Coral)
  • Georgia Salpa @ 67.0 (Sportingbet)
  • Nicola McLean @ 101.0 (Coral)

Top Man

The bookmakers cannot split Michael Madsen and Gareth Thomas for the “top man” market in Celebrity Big Brother betting. Michael can be backed at 3.5 (Paddy Power) while Gareth can also be backed at 3.5 (bet365).

Other Top Man Odds:

  • Romeo @ 4.0 (Boylesports)
  • Frankie Cocozza @ 5.5 (Coral)
  • Kirk Norcross @ 9.0 (bet365)

Top Woman

Seeing as she leads the betting to win the show outright, it comes as no surprise that Natalie Cassidy is odds-on to finish as the show’s top woman. Natalie can be backed at a best priced 1.73 (Coral).

Other Top Woman Odds:

  • Denise Welch @ 2.62 (bet365)
  • Karissa and Kristina Shannon @ 17.0 (Coral)
  • Natasha Giggs @ 21.0 (Paddy Power)
  • Georgia Salpa @ 26.0 (bet365)
  • Nicola McLean @ 41.0 (Paddy Power)

Georgia Salpa To Be First Celebrity Big Brother Eviction

Model Georgia Salpa is the call to be the first evictee in this series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The underwear model has received very little coverage during her stint in the house other than pretending to flirt with Kirk Norcross since she was put up for eviction.

Surprisingly, she can still be backed at 2.0 (bet365) after being as short as 1.40 yesterday. This price is even more tempting after Ladbrokes revealed 95 percent of all elimination bets have been placed on her.

In comparison, Andrew Stone’s delusions of grandeur and poorly hidden devastation at being put up for eviction has been a focal point of the edited shows. Stone is car crash television and you wonder what he is going to come out with next. He has already confided in current bookmaker’s favourite Natalie Cassidy he believes he will be a judge on the X Factor.

If there’s one thing the British viewing public enjoy, it’s somebody having a breakdown in front of them. Dance teacher and A-list celebrity in his own mind Stone can also be backed at 2.0 (Ladbrokes).

The 26-year-old Salpa received five nominations by Denise, Gareth, Natalie, Nicola and Romeo while Stone was nominated seven times by Frankie, Gareth, Georgia, Kirk, Michael, Natalie and Natasha.

Here’s how the other housemates fair in the betting:

Natalie Cassidy

Actress Natalie remains the favourite to win the series and did not receive any votes from her fellow housemates. She is tackling the tasks set by Big Brother with good humour and is endearing herself to the other celebrities and viewers alike.

Best Odds: 3.25 (Betfred)

Denise Welch

Like Natalie, daytime television presenter and actress Denise also remained free from nominations during the first round. She seems likeable and is getting on with everybody, hence her edging to second favourite in the betting.

Best Odds: 5.0 (Paddy Power)

Gareth Thomas

Former rugby player Gareth earned just one nomination – from grouchy Michael Madsen whom he compared to a “pig” due to his persistant snoring. Getting involved with the tasks and appears popular.

Best Odds: 7.5 (Sportingbet)

Michael Madsen

Actor Madsen has grown in popularity after a tough introduction to life in the house. Initially, he looked like he didn’t belong but now he’s settling in better. He has a thing for Natasha Giggs which may be interesting to watch develop over the next few days. Surprisingly, he received one nomination from Denise, who he seems to get on well with.

Best Odds: 8.0 (Bet Victor)

Romeo

The singer has not received a lot of coverage in the edited shows but also did not receive any nominations from his fellow housemates either. Staying under the radar.

Best Odds: 9.0 (bet365)

Frankie Cocozza

The former X Factor contestant has made his sexual frustrations clear during his few days in the house and is getting on the twins nerves. He received votes from Karissa and Kristina and also Andrew. He may get even more during the next round of voting.

Best Odds: 11.0 (Betfred)

Kirk Norcoss

Despite constantly hitting on both Georgia and the twins, Kirk did not receive any nominations from his fellow housemates. Still appears popular even if his odds on winning have lengthened.

Best Odds: 21.0 (Sportingbet)

Natasha Giggs

Still has no chance of winning but something is developing between her and Michael. Getting involved with another married man? Who’d have thunk it? Received nominations from Andrew and Romeo.

Best Odds: 41.0 (Boylesports)

Karissa and Kristina Shannon

They look pretty and appear to be getting involved in the house activities but they are sitting ducks for the second eviction. They received four nominations from Frankie, Kirk, Natasha and Nicola.

Best Odds: 41.0 (Sky Bet)

Nicola McLean

Now the rank outsider to win because she lacks a likeability factor. Continually bitching about other housemates will see a rise in the nominations she received from Georgia and the twins next time the votes are in.

Best Odds: 101.0 (Coral)
