After picking the winner of CBB 2013 and IACGMOOH from the outset Claire Taylor is back to give us the lowdown on this year's CBB contestants, and she believes Made in Chelsea star Ollie Locke is destined for success...

"The pretty Made in Chelsea star has not put a foot wrong as yet, his housemates won't nominate him, he is sure to make the final and will be fighting for the winner’s title."


We are into the second week now of Celebrity Big Brother 2014, and after the early unexpected first exit of Evander Holyfield I predict more than a few knock-out punches to be thrown during Wednesday night's eviction.

Up for the chop thanks to tense, face-to-face nominations we have Liz Jones - available to back at 4/61.67 - Jasmine Waltz (5/23.5), Luisa Zissman (6/17.0), and Jim Davidson (59/160.0).

Again with the lines fully open, we are voting to save our favourite housemate, not to evict, and it is worth keeping in mind. Although not huge value, I predict Liz to go, she wasn't famous before she went into the house and she certainly won't be famous when she gets out.

So far this year the headline grabber has been the bed hopping Lee Ryan - available to back at 41/142.0 in the Winner market.

The Blue band member (Blue as in name of his group, nothing else) started handcuffed to Casey Batchelor (15/116.0), which resulted in some fondling and a quick kiss, and then he turned his attentions to the controversial Jasmine Waltz (99/1100.0). With no regard for Casey's feelings whatsoever, love rat Lee moved onto Jasmine. Popular with viewers? I think not. He has been absolutely cringe worthy to watch, steer well clear of all three, love triangles make interesting viewing, but that is all.

An intriguing contestant is Jim Davidson (12/53.4). Much to my surprise his popularity is growing, naturally funny, and straight talking, Jim's price is shortening by the day. It is worth noting with him though that he will be up for eviction every time there is one, however he should survive to the final, with public support growing, Jim could be a potential winner.

Ollie Locke (11/53.2) has been the favourite to win the show since opening night. The pretty Made in Chelsea star has not put a foot wrong as yet, his housemates won't nominate him, he is sure to make the final and will be fighting for the winner's title.

Sam Faiers (6/16.8) from TOWIE should also make at least the top five. However Sam seems to be very quiet, she doesn't appear to say or do a great deal, nomination dodger, granted, but enough to win? I don't think so.

Dappy (11/112.0) from N-Dubz has been an entertaining watch. His explosive argument with Luisa Zissman (24/125.0) was hilarious with him reciting his GCSE grades, repeatedly getting mixed up with his own marks. Dappy is only in the house for the money, and although he has a big fan base, I don't think he can win.

Next up we have Linda Nolan (45/146.0). Deep down I think Linda would love to win the show, she's very much a mother figure to the group, however her hatred towards Davidson hasn't done her any favours whatsoever. In fact, I can see the public turning against her if she takes her hate campaign much further. She is very sly, desperate to win, and by her own admission stone broke, I cannot see Linda making the final.

Last but not least we have Lionel Blair (39/140.0). The 82-year-old TV personality has done well to stick it out this long in my opinion. He does like to complain an awful lot, but in a way he is very endearing. Lionel's problem may well be Davidson, he has nominated his so called friend twice now, and although one of these was to his face, people usually don't take too kindly to disloyalty. If you combine this with his argumentative streak, Lionel too, has no chance of winning the show!
