Lewis is the current top favourite for the chop in the first double elimination of the series with William Hill offering odds of 2/5, while James is just behind on 11/4.
Odds on the pair of them being the ones to get the boot are 8/13, with a spokesman adding: “We are confident that both Lewis and James will go – the only question is which will go first.”
The five celebs currently up for the chop found themselves facing the public vote at the end of face-to-face nominations earlier this week, while Bear faces every eviction as part of a prior twist.
Find out who the unlucky two are in Friday’s live ‘CBB’ eviction, kicking off at 9pm on Channel 5.
Whoever gets the boot will be the fifth and sixth celebrities evicted from the current series, following the departures of Grant Bovey, Saira Khan, Chloe Khan and, more recently, Heavy D, whose ensuing interview with Emma Willis made for some seriously cringe-tastic viewing.
Christopher Biggins was also axed from the show, but was asked to leave via the back door due to repeated comments which it was deemed could potentially “cause widespread offence”.
