CBB: Sarah Harding is favourite to win – but Sam Thompson is punters pick

With the Big Brother final looming we bring you the latest from the markets…


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.

The former Girls Aloud singer is now ODDS ON at 10/11 to win the 20th series of the show this week, ahead of Sam (4/1), Chad Johnson (6/1), and Jemma Lucy (7/1).

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.”
