'Celebrity Big Brother' 2016 Odds: Grant Bovey Favourite For First Eviction

Who will be meeting Emma on Friday?

Bookies have revealed which ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate is favourite to become this year’s first evictee.

Both James Whale and Grant Bovey are on the chopping block this week, after the housemates nominated for the first time on Sunday (30 July).

It’s now looking like Anthea Turner’s ex-husband Grant will be meeting Emma Willis on Friday night (5 August), with bookmakers William Hill offering odds of 1-6 he will be evicted.

His rival, controversial radio presenter James is pegged at 7-2. 

“Grant Bovey has not been adding value in the house and he looks doomed to be the first constant to get the boot,” a William Hill spokesperson said. 

Meanwhile, it is still looking good for Christopher Biggins to win the whole series, as the entertainer has odds of 15-8, with his nearest rivals being Ricky Norwood at 9-2, and Samantha Fox at 6-1. 

Although this year’s celebs have only been in the house a week, there has already been plenty of action, with the contestants hitting headlines with their controversial antics on multiple occasions. 

Viewers called for Marnie Simpson to be removed from the house after exposing herself to Saira during a prank, while Biggins has also sparked a backlash with some problematic comments he made about bisexual people.

Aubrey O’Day was also been issued a formal - and final - warning, after spitting in a sandwich and drink made for fellow housemate Stephen Bear.

‘Celebrity Big Brother’ continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
