Big Brother Betting: All Jade bets off for William Hill
William Hill has announced that following accusations of bullying and racism in the Big Brother house against Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty, they will not be paying out to punters if Jade Goody wins the show.
Over the past few days tension between Jade and Shilpa has steadily grown, with loudmouth Jade opening her ample mouth far too many times for the publics liking. She is accused as the ring-leader of the group, including Danielle Lloyd and Jo O’Meara, which is allegedly targeting Shilpa with racial abuse.
“As far as we are concerned, Jade does not deserve to win and we will not be accepting any bets on her,” said Rupert Adams, William Hill spokesman.
William Hill also confirmed that if Jade does win the show, they will payout on the housemate that comes second.
Shilpa Shetty is currently the favourite with William Hill at 6/5 on to win the show.
Meanwhile, the Carphone Warehouse has pulled out of its sponsorship deal with Celebrity Big Brother with immediate effect over the allegations of racism.
"We are totally against all forms of racism and bullying and indeed this behaviour is entirely at odds with the brand values of The Carphone Warehouse,” said Charles Dunstone, the chief executive of Carphone Warehouse.
