Early favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother is revealed as line-up is leaked

Early favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother is revealed as line-up is leaked

CBB is making a return next week, finally

Celebrity Big Brother has been one of the hottest topics in recent days after its return was confirmed by broadcaster ITV.

CBB will head to ITV1 and ITVX as soon as next week, with the first live episode landing on Monday, 4 March at 9pm.

The line-up has been leaked in advance, with a host of up-and-coming as well as established stars making up the cast of 12 contestants.

Will Best and AJ Odudu will once again take their place as presenters of the show; a role that for so many years was held by iconic broadcaster Davina McCall who very much made it her own.

ITV hasn't officially confirmed the leaked line-up for 2024, with a spokesperson telling LADbible: "Any names are at this point pure speculation and viewers will have to tune in to see who will be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house."

The leaked line-up includes Zeze Millz, Marisha Wallace, Coronation Street's Colson Smith, Fern Britton, Lauren Simon, Gary Goldsmith, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Levi Roots, Strictly Come Dancing's Nikita Kuzmin, Ibiza Weekender star David Potts, and Heartstopper star Bradley Riches.

X Factor judging legends Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne are tipped to complete the contestants for 2024, with Osbourne joining the house in a different way to everyone else.

As with any reality show, the odds are now starting to trickle out as to who might win the whole thing.

For those who like a flutter, it might be a fun way to take part in the return of Celebrity Big Brother.

Right at the bottom, and tipped to leave very early, is Marisha Wallace. Betway gives her odds of 33/1 to win the thing.

Fearn Britton has been given odds of 20/1 while Gary Goldsmith has an outside shot at 16/1.

Louis Walsh and Levi Roots are given the same chance at 14/1 while Zeze Mills and Lauren Simon could make it further, with shorter odds of 10/1.

Nikita Kuzmin comes in at 8/1 with David Potts and Colson Smith given 6/1.

Bradley Riches is second favourite at 4/1.

Top of the list and favourite for 2024? Love Island's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu at a very short 11/4.

Sharon Osbourne isn't given odds due to the expectation she will enter the house as a 'special contestant' and not compete alongside the rest.

Chad Yeomans, from Betway, said: “After her landslide win with ex-boyfriend Davide in Love Island 2022, rumours are rife that Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu will return to our screens next week, along with the likes of Levi Roots and Louis Walsh.

Ekin-Su is made for reality TV, and she’s gained even more fans since her stint on the American version of The Traitors, now with over four million followers on social media.

AJ Odudu and Will Best.

“She will undoubtedly command plenty of air time in the house, and with that already established broad fan base, she is the early favourite at 11/4 to win Celebrity Big Brother 2024.

“Next in the betting comes Heartstopper actor Bradley Riches at 4/1, closely followed by Ibiza Weekender star David Potts, whose big personality promises to bring both fun and drama to the famous house.”
