Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Rylan Clark favourite to win
Former X Factor contestant Rylan Clark is favourite to win the upcoming series of Celebrity Big Brother – before the line-up of housemates has even been announced.
The Essex native proved a hit with viewers during his time on the ITV talent show and Channel 5 bosses are now reportedly hoping his bubbly personality will win over Celebrity Big Brother fans.
While a complete list of names are yet to be released, celebrities rumoured to be setting foot into the house include Rylan, Steps star Claire Richards, singer Meat Loaf and former The Only Way Is Essex star Lydia Bright.
And despite fans of the show still awaiting confirmation of who is taking part, bookmakers are already taking bets on who will win the reality series.
BetVictor has given Rylan odds of 2/1 to come out on top with actress Lindsay Lohan coming in second place.
On Rylan’s potential appearance, a source told the Daily Star: “He was the most explosive thing to happen on the X Factor this year and people are convinced he is going to appear.
“He is very well liked and he’d make some pretty brilliant entertainment.”
Claire Richards, Lydia Bright and Meal Loaf have all been given odds of 5/1 to win while former EastEnders actress Gillian Taylforth is at 6/1.
The next series of Celebrity Big Brother begins on Channel 5 at 9pm on Thursday 3 January.
