Big Brother 2017: Ellie remains the favourite but Raph and Lotan are proving popular

Big Brother 2017

Ellie Young remains the current favourite to win Big Brother 2017.

We enter BBUK's third week following the surprises of the weekend.

Imran Javeed became the second housemate evicted from the Big Brother house, but in a shock turn of events, his wife Sukhvinder left with him. After the live show, Kayleigh Morris was removed from the house, seeing the house minus three housemates.

Their departure has only made the path to the Big Brother title that bit clear for favourite to win Ellie, as her odds shorten further to 3/1 from 7/2.

However, two housemates are hot on Ellie's heels, Raph Korine and Lotan Carter are both next at 4/1 having been cut in from greater odds. Raph was previously priced at 7/1 with Lotan shortening all the way in from 9/1.

Chanelle McCleary is another one to watch as she feautres at 5/1 to win.

The rest of the housemates look like relative outsiders with Kieran Lee 12/1, Charlotte Keys 14/1, Tom Barber 16/1, Joe Quaranta 22/1, sisters Hannah Agboola and Deborah Agboola both 25/1 and Rebecca Jane bottom of the pile at 33/1.

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “Ellie Young has once again shortened for the Big Brother title and is now 3/1 from 7/2 after Imran and Sukhvinder both left the house on Friday.”

Shed added "However there is a bit of a power struggle going on in the betting as Raph and Lotan are close behind Ellie at 4/1. Punters have been keen on Ellie, Raph and Lotan, but it is Lotan who poses the greatest liability at present."
