With the 2017 series of Celebrity Big Brother now in full swing, it’s pretty evident to see who the bookmakers believe will be the winner of this year’s show.

Bookmakers have installed singer-songwriter Sarah Harding as the favourite to win this year, with Bet365 offering odds as short as 11/4 for it to happen, and make sure you sign up to secure a casino Bet365 bonus code.

This could be surprising to some, especially as just last night, the Girls Aloud member threatened to quit the show less than 2 weeks into the process following a falling out with Ibiza Weekender star Jordan Davies.

With just one eviction so far, that being Marissa Jade, Harding could find herself next out the door of the Big Brother house after being nominated for the next eviction, alongside Karthik Nagesan, Trisha Paytas and Chad Johnson.

It’s clear that Harding isn’t particularly favoured by those inside the house, but she has captured the hearts of the millions of viewers at home who believe she has what it takes to win the show.

Originally scheduled to end in early September, this series of Celebrity Big Brother will be cut short, with the new date for the finale planned for Friday, August 25th.

There are still 14 celebrities in the Big Brother house and with the show now a week shorter and there being just over two weeks to run of the current series, expect there to be a lot of chaos and drama to transpire on our television screens between now and then.

What would really throw the cat amongst the pigeons is that if reports are to be believed, more celebrities are expected to enter the Big Brother house in the near future, meaning we could have multiple evictions on one night in the near future in a bid to whittle down the number of contestants.

Harding has been touted for a potential in-house romance with Chad Johnson, who is also up for eviction next alongside the singer, and perhaps having that close ally may be enough to keep her in the house amid her claims she may quit the show.

Charismatic Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle is second favourite to win this series of CBB at 4/1, while Made in Chelsea actor Sam Thompson and X-Factor finalist Amelia Lily are joint-third favourites at 7/1 with just over two weeks left of this year’s show.
