Brainless Brian strikes a chord; BIG BROTHER.
BRIAN has usurped Liam to become new Big Brother favourite with Bet365, writes Dan Williams.
The dim-witted Londoner has had viewers in stitches over recent nights with antics including wetting himself on a caravan holiday with Charlie and correctly ascertaining that William Shakespeare had nothing to do with Babe: Pig in the City. His brainless actions seem to have struck a chord with the public.
Brian could have been backed at 10-1 on Thursday, but Bet365 now make him their 3-1 jolly, and he is second in every other firm's lists behind mildmannered northerner Liam.
Billi was ejected from the hapless household on Friday to a chorus of boos, but his 55.1 eviction-vote percentage wasn't as bad as many predicted - it could have been backed at 7-1 with Skybet.
Charlie remained odds-on yesterday on Betfair for the next eviction.
Betfair - fourth eviction (to lay) at 6.30pm yesterday: 1.92 Charlie (2), 7.2 Tracey (8), 8.8 Nicky (9), 11.5 Ziggy (14.5), 12.5 Carloe (14.5), 17.5 Laura (25), 25 Jonathan (28), 50 Chanelle (100), 75 bar.
