Reality TV expert Tim Booth has two bets for tonight's Celebrity Big Brother eviction.
Tiffany Pollard has had a great couple of weeks. She’s made too great an impact to be in with a chance of going, as her odds of 50/1 reflect. Similar can be said of John Partridge, and he’s almost certainly safe at 50/1 also. Emma Willis is likely to announce the Top Two or Three in the vote tonight. If so, I’d expect both Tiffany and John’s names to be called.
Not much has changed with Danniella Westbrook. On last night’s show though, she was shown complaining about the immaturity of the younger housemates, which almost certainly echoed what viewers were thinking at home. She got a surprisingly positive reaction from the crowd on Tuesday, so she should be safe at 10/1 tonight.
Gemma Collins is continuing to dominate the show, but sadly, it isn’t positive airtime she’s receiving. She’s being portrayed as lazy, bossy and still meddling in other people’s business. There’s a lot of hatred for her online, but she’s still getting a few positive comments too. At 33/1, she more than likely will be safe, but you never know.
That leaves us with the terrible trio; Megan, Jeremy and Stephanie. I firmly believe we’ll be seeing one of them booted out tonight, but predicting which one of them will go is far from easy.
Stephanie Davis is the marginal favourite at 6/4. The general consensus is, she’s been cheating on her boyfriend with Jeremy. I believe the phrase is, "She’s mugged him off". However, she received plenty of airtime in last night’s show, which could be enough to keep her safe. And she was also a surprise in the Top Two of last Friday’s vote. But as probably the most hated housemate up for eviction tonight, it’s also quite possible that she will go.
Jeremy’s storyline has largely been involved with being Stephanie’s partner in crime. The market was given a small surprise last Friday night, when she outpolled him. This is likely to have been because she is more famous than him. Perhaps because Stephanie seems to be getting the blame for their relationship, Jeremy doesn’t seem to get as many people talking about him. A mini-task last night that saw him caring for fake baby twins was designed to show his kind-hearted side. Jeremy languishes at the bottom of online eviction polls, and so his price for eviction represents value at 4/1. Not even the "Luck of the Irish" may be enough to save him, as the Republic of Ireland are not able to vote.
Ex-On The Beach "star" Megan McKenna is second favourite at 2/1. Looking at the list of nominated housemates, she certainly seems like the most disposable. A potential showmance with Scotty T hasn’t materialised, so you have to question the point of Megan being in the house. A couple of foul-mouthed diary room rants have been her most memorable moments. She barely received any airtime last night, and it’s hard to imagine many picking up the phone for her.
The value call is to take on Stephanie as the favourite here, so I am advising backing Megan to go, with a saver on Jeremy.
