William Hill Online reports sustained betting on Celebrity Big Brother candidate

Very rarely do online sportsbooks see such a gamble on one betting option: William Hill Online has reported this week on a sustained betting campaign that has seen the odds of one Celebrity Big Brother slashed 20-fold.

Odds slashed

Tricia Penrose has been backed in from an outside 40/1 to an unbelievable 2/1 to win Celebrity Big Brother. A sustained betting campaign has seen the Liverpudlian actress emerge as the main challenger to 8/13 favorite Rylan.

According to a William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly, the bookmaker has never before seen a Big Brother gamble quite like this. In reality, it is very rare to see such consistent betting on an outsider in any event - whether it be sport, politics or celebrity action and reality television.

Reality betting

Hill is the place to go for betting on reality TV and celebrity news. Its odds for Celebrity Big Brother currently look like this: Rylan Clark, 8/13, Tricia Penrose, 2/1, Heidi and Spencer, 10/1, Neil Ruddock, 12/1, Frankie Dettori, 25/1, and Claire Richards and poor old Ryan Moloney, both 33/1.

Find a host of TV/Specials betting at William Hill, on everything including: Dancing on Ice, X Factor, Splash, Oscars, BAFTAs, Weather, Royal and Finance specials, Costa Book Award, Eurovision Song Contest, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and Twitter Specials.
