The Celebrity Big Brother final is fast approaching with the winner set to be announced on Friday (February 2, 2018).

As usual, the show will start at 9pm on Channel 5 and will last one hour.

With just five celebrities now left in the house, let’s take a look at the remaining contestants and their chances of winning.

CBB: Ann Widdecombe

Leading favourite: Ann Widdecombe

Ann has been priced as the favourite by bookies across the UK throughout the 32-day realty TV show.

The former Tory MP’s strong opinions on same-sex marriage may have caused a stir with some housemates, thus leading to the eviction of Andrew Brady, but the rest of the group have embraced Ann as their caring mother.

She’s provided humour through her inability to summon a curse word stronger than ‘bloody’ and has cared for many housemates in their time of need.

CBB: Courtney Act

Close second: Courtney Act

Opinions have been split with regards to drag queen Courtney Act, also known as Shane Jenek.

A close bond with Andrew Brady brought alight many issues surrounding homophobia and Courtney has been favoured because of her brave, strong-willed and morally coragoues personality.

However, audiences have tended to side with Ann when the two characters have clashed, and Ann would be favourite to recieve more support come the public vote.

CBB: Jess Impiazzi

Black horse: Jess Impiazzi

One of the minor celebrities to enter the house having appeared on MTV show Ex on The Beach, Jess Impiazzi has come into her own on Celebrity Big Brother.

No-longer known as someone who once dated Charlie Sheen, Jess has proved the nation’s sweetheart with her kind, innocent and honest ways. She never received a single eviction vote from her fellow housemates across the entire show!

Her recent diary room confession about having sex on TV (during Ex on The Beach) would have only built a stronger fanbase and if your’e a fan of the surprise winner then Jess Impiazzi could provide a shock.

CBB: Shane Lynch

Underdog: Shane Lynch

The former Boyzone pop-star is a very unlikely winner for Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

A favourite from the off because of his past we haven’t seen enough action from Shane to consider him a front runner.

He’s more than worthy for a place in the final five but if you want to cast a vote Shane’s way because you loved his rendition of No Matter What, well it’s likely to be a wasted 20p + other network charges that may apply.

CBB: Wayne Sleep

Others: Wayne Sleep

The small and explosive Wayne Sleep is a fantastically enthusiastic character to watch.

The former dancer in Royal Ballet entered the house having built an impressive CV of appearances in reality TV shows. Undoubtedly, he will be casted for more after making this Celebrity Big Brother top five however his chances of winning are minuscule.
