Best joint favourite with bookies to take Big Brother title

The latest series of Celebrity Big Brother ends on Friday night on Channel 5, with some bookmakers placing Calum Best as 7/4 joint favourite with Katie Hopkins to land the reality TV crown.

A BoyleSports spokesperson said: “We stand to lose a five-figure amount if Calum is crowned the winner.”

Media watchdog Ofcom said it had received 2,646 complaints about the series so far, with many of them about the language used by the contestants.

Celebrity Big Brother started life as a spin-off of the main show on Channel 4 before both were dropped and then picked up by rival broadcaster Channel 5.
