We waited and waited and the day finally came, the Celebrity Big Brother launch night! As we thought, it was a wonderfully over the top affair and the nation was of course tuned in in their millions. Channel 5 pulled out the stops and the gorgeous Emma Willis was the perfect set up host for a show that lasted for two fun filled hours before Rylan Clark-Neal stepped in and does what he does best on CBBOTS.

This year’s series arrived with the news that CBB was going to be scrapped when this one finishes, so as you can imagine there were plenty of stars hunting for a place in the house.

In the build-up to this year’s show it was rumoured that the guests would include everyone from a kidnapped glamour model to a relation of a very famous member of the Royal family. Oh, and when you add a reality star known for her love of devouring men, you’ve got TV gold.

So, with the finale fast approaching who’s still in the running to be the outright winner of Celebrity Big Brother 2018?

 

Ryan Thomas 3/1

 After walking away from Coronation Street in 2016 to look for new opportunities, Ryan Thomas has hit the big time again with Celebrity Big Brother.

His brother Adam was previously on I’m A Celebrity and his other brother was on Love Island, so he knows just how much cash is in the offing. His fee to come on the show was reportedly £500,000, and if he was to win the show, well, the sky’s the limit.

Following his huge drama with Roxanne, Ryan is surely now the nation’s favourite to win the lot.

 

 

Dan Osborne 9/1

 The TOWIE reality star is in the house as well as former Love Island star Gabby Allen. The very same Gabby Allen he was accused of cheating with. We must point out though that the pair have denied ever getting it on. Mmm, those pictures in Marbella showing them looking very cosy must have been photoshopped huh.  Is he still in the running? You betcha.

 

Gabby Allen 19/1

 No stranger to reality TV, Love Island’s Gabby was reportedly keen to get back on primetime TV.

Doing something like Celebrity Big Brother was never on her radar, but after she broke up with boyfriend Marcel Somerville, she to push herself and do something that was out of her comfort zone

Going into the house Gabby wanted to be known as her own person rather than part of a couple.

Her stay in the house was almost a very brief one when days into her stay, Gabby almost quit the show following a major bust up with Natalie Nunn.
 

 
 

Kirsty Allen 11/1

Kirstie was one of the first big names to be tipped to join the Celebrity Big Brother housewhen the new series was announced.

Kirstie was huge in the ‘80s as Rebecca Howe in the show Cheersand starred alongside John Travolta in the Look Who’s Talking films.

As soon as she landed at the CBB house she took control, pretty soon after the start of the show she was elected President, with Ryan Thomas acting as her Vice President.

That being said, Kirstie the first challenge in charge – was to build a wall to in the garden to stop intruders from stealing ‘green cards,’ she had  previously sang Donald Trump’s praises so as you can imagine, this became very controversial.

 

Nick Leeson 11/1

Nick’s claim to fame is his bringing down of Barings Bank in 1995. He evaded the police and sparked a week-long manhunt as he did his best to evade capture.

He was eventually caught and jailed for six years after being convicted of fraudulently trading under Barings name. Should he win, Nick knows a thing or two about large sums of money, he lost the bank more than £800milion, which eventually lead to its collapse.

 

Sally Morgan 39/1

 Known as Psychic Sally, she was the favourite medium of Princess Diana and she even claims to have predicted the late royal’s death a year before it happened.

Princess Diana wasn’t her only superstar client, she also worked with George Michael, Uma Thurman and Spice girl Mel B.
 

 
She has fronted TV shows including ITV2’s Sally Morgan: Star Psychic and Sky Living’s Psychic Sally: On the Road. No matter what happens with the result of CBB, Sally is now a TV superstar herself.
