'Big Brother' Final: Christopher's Odds To Win Slashed But Ashleigh Is Bookies' Favourite, While Luisa Zissman Backs Helen Wood

Big Brother’ is almost over for another year, and it looks like the live final is going to be a close race, as Christopher Hall threatens Ashleigh Coyle’s position as the favourite to win the series.

In the run-up to the final, Christopher’s odds have been slashed from 3/1 to 11/4, making him the male housemate with the highest odds of winning.

That said, Ashleigh remains the overall favourite to win the show, with odds of 8/13.


A spokesperson for bookies William Hill said: "Just a couple of days ago Ashleigh looked a certainty to win but that has all changed and almost 80% of bets in the last twenty four hours have been for Christopher.

“He can and might just win this.”

If Ashleigh does succeed in taking home the title of this year’s ‘Big Brother’ champion, she’ll be the first female winner since the show moved to Channel 5 in 2011, and the youngest winner in ‘BB’ history at just 18 years old.

Meanwhile, opinionated ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’ panelist - and former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate - Luisa Zissman has been giving her thoughts on who she thinks the public should choose as their winner, ahead of Friday’s live final.

According to Luisa, it should actually be Helen Wood - who has proved unpopular with the public throughout the series - who should be crowned winner, because she thinks Helen would put the prize money to good use.

She tweeted:

She’s certainly changed her tune, having slammed Helen earlier in the series and suggested that ‘BB’ producers should have taken away her free pass to the series final when she was reprimanded for her “unacceptable behaviour”.

Elaborating further, Luisa added:

So… that’s all the housemates, then, Luisa? It’s not like you to not be able to form an opinion.

Tune in to the live final of ‘Big Brother’ on Friday, 15 August at 9pm to see which of the six remaining housemates scoop the title of winner, as well as the cash prize of £100,000.
