Sarah Harding may be the runaway leader in the Celebrity Big Brother betting ahead of Friday’s final, but Sam Thompson has proven more popular with bettors.
But she’s well down the order in terms of bets placed on her winning.

Thousands have been staked on rival Sam to win – with Paddy Power liable for a pay-out in the tens of thousands if the reality personality triumphs.
In fact, Harding is only the fourth most popular bet for the CBB crown – also behind Amelia Lily and Shaun Williamson.
The least well-backed remaining housemate is Derek Acorah – but, of course, he already knew that.
Asked about the upcoming finale spokesman Paddy Power said: “Stand aside Girls Aloud, winning CBB could be Sarah Harding’s greatest hit.
“But our punters seem to think that Sam is more likely to triumph, a victory which would be Made In Chelsea.”
