The Celebrity Big Brother housemates opted to save James Cosmo last night, and they’re not the only ones backing the Game of Thrones actor – after we had a load of bets on him to be crowned CBB champ.

In the minutes after the show aired, there was a flurry of bets on the Scot – which were followed by a ‘significant’ wager early this morning – prompting his odds of winning to be cut from 12/1 to 7/2.

Former favourite Chloe, meanwhile, saw her chances of triumph disappear than her clothes while in the house, drifting from 11/2 to 9/1 overnight.

The Geordie Shore star does, at least, lead another market – the first couple to have sex in the CBB house, alongside Calum Best (10/11).

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “It’s not just teen girls who swear by Cosmo, as our punters have lumped on James to be throned.

“While Chloe’s chances of winning have drifted Ferry far away, with her explicit language and behaviour shocking even the deviants who watch CBB.”
