I wouldn't say this years housemates are the biggest names going and unfortunately many of those suggested early on such as Hulk Hogan and Christopher Biggins are absent at present, but there's bound to be fireworks as there is every year, especially once the drinks start flowing. From an early glance I'd say that there are some celebrities in there who don't stand a chance based on attitude alone (Farrah Abraham for instance), others that are a bundle of nerves and will struggle as a result (Gail Porter) and some in there performing the now well established route of going from reality TV show to reality TV show, collecting their cheques along the way.
It's no surprise that former X Factor contestants and unlikely couple Stevi and Chloe are current favourites at 4-1. They're an interested pair and it wouldn't be the first time we'd seen X Factor success cross over to CBB in such a way. Janice Dickinson at 5-1 second favourite again is no surprise. She's more 'tough as old boots' than 'happy go lucky' but that and her former reality TV pedigree may well mean that she's in for the long haul. It's still early days right now and it'll be interesting to see how things pan out. Stay tuned!
