Ryan Thomas ‘most popular housemate ever’ — but what’s next for the Celebrity Big Brother winner?

Tuesday 11th September 2018

We all knew that Ryan Thomas would win Celebrity Big Brother.

He was the early bookies favourite with competition from only one housemate—American actress Kirstie Alley, who was creeping into favour with the public before ‘punch-gate’.

Roxanne Pallett’s false accusation of the former Coronation Street star cemented his victory half way through the series, leading him to becoming odds-on with the bookies after immense support from fans.

Because of his success, it’s got Coral thinking what the 34-year-old year old might do next.

The bookmaker has priced up a number of specials on what might be next for the star.

Thomas is odds on, at 4/5, to announce during 2018 that he is engaged to girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh, while the pair are also just evens to have their own reality TV show.

It is 6/4 for a return to the Corrie cobbles as Jason Grimshaw, and 2/1 that he dances on Strictly Come Dancing 2019.

Coral's Harry Aitkenhead said: “Ryan Thomas was one of the most popular CBB winners ever, and not just with punters who made him hot favourite to win, and the odds suggest it won't be long before he's back on our TV screens.”

Coral had made Thomas favourite (at 3/1 on the show’s launch night) before constant support in the betting sent him odds on at the end of August. 

He was favourite throughout barring a short period where Kirstie Alley went to the top of the betting.

“Our customers would have certainly been cheering as Ryan was unveiled as the winner last night having supported him almost constantly since the launch night back a month ago,” added Aitkenhead.

Ryan beat off competition from runner up Kirstie Alley, third place Dan Osborne, fourth place Nick Leeson, fifth place Sally Morgan and sixth place Gabby Allen.
