Irish Big Brother star Hughie Maughan is the favourite to win the Big Brother title this year, according to Boyle Sports.

Dubliner Hughie Maughan is the favourite after his odds were slashed to win.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive for BoyleSports said: “Hughie is the underdog story of this series of Big Brother having been initially installed at 20/1 to win, the Dubliner has stolen the hearts of the public and is now the red hot 10/11 favourite to win.”

“Punters just can’t get enough of Hughie and we suspect that he will continue to shorten should the bets keep flooding in like they have over the past few days.”

Hughie's fellow housemate Jason is the second favourite to win.

She added “For a brief period it looked like Jason was about to overtake Hughie in the betting, but following an avalanche of bets for Hughie to win on Saturday night, spilling into Sunday morning, the stunt man has been left at a stalemate as the 7/2 second favourite.”
