Odds on Vinnie Jones to this year’s Celebrity Big Brother have plummeted over the weekend after a series of outbursts from the Hollywood actor.
Jones, prices up at a lowly 8/15 at the weekend, has seen his price drift out to 3/1 after celebrating the eviction of fellow housemates Sisqo and Stephen Baldwin.
Jones was unpopular with Sisqo in particular in his post-eviction interview, accusing the former footballer of “double standards”.
And Jones made his views on his fellow housemates clear, describing socialite Ivana Trump as "a bit of a pain" and saying of actress Stephanie Beacham: "If Steph sits on any more fences she’s gonna get splinters in her a***."
Jones, who has developed something of a “working class hero” image during his football and acting career, also risked alienating himself from the Big Brother audience by complaining about the cost of running a Hollywood mansion, complete with cleaners, gardeners and dog groomers.
A best price of 3/1 on Jones is now available at Stan James, with Dane Bowers now the 11/8 favourite with Victor Candler. Page 3 model Nicola Tappenden has drifted out to a best of 7/1 joint third favourite with Skybet, alongside Alex Reid.
