Gary Busey Wins Celebrity Big Brother As Favourite
Gary Busey has won Celebrity Big Brother 2014. Despite his regular fights with his fellow housemates, the Hollywood star has been popular with the public throughout the series and has now become the first American to claim the top spot after receiving the most public votes.
Over the final few days of the competition Busey was the bookies’ favourite to win with odds of 4/7 while George Gilbey was second favourite with odds of 4/1. A spokeswoman for Coral said that the bookies are now facing a “huge payout” after the betting public strongly backed Busey.
While Busey may have been popular with the public he certainly wasn’t with his fellow housemates. Throughout the series he received 24 nominations for eviction but survived them all, despite at some points being the bookies’ favourite for eviction.
The boxer Audley Harrison finished in second place despite having odds of 13/2. White Dee, the star of Benefits Street, was favourite to win for much of the series, but in the end she came in fifth place. Above her was Gogglebox star George Gilbey and in third place was James Jordan from Strictly Come Dancing.
