Back to the day-job for Kilroy...?

Despite the endless tabloid hype and speculation, (OK, I admit it, some of it was right here), not one of the bookie's favourites - including Robert Kilroy-Silk made it into the Celebrity Big Brother house when it opened for business tonight.

Earlier, William Hill's had slashed the odds of Kilroy winning the three week show from 16/1 to 10/1.

It seems punters believed the hype and put the 'smart' money on Kilroy (despite being hardly heard of since his election as East Midlands Member of the European Parliament).

Before the house-guests were revealed, Celebrity Big Brother odds were: 11/2 Whitney Houston, 7/1 Adam Ant, 10/1 Sue Pollard, 10/1 Kilroy Silk.

Not one of the favourites was among the chosen ones who entered the BB house tonight.

(I watched the spectacle purely in the interests of research and I can report that there was no sign of 'Lord' Jeffrey Archer, 'Prince' Naseem Hamed, or 'Honest' Jim Speechley among those hoping to rehabilitate themselves on the TV show).

Maybe Kilroy and Co will be among BB's later surprise guests.

Meantime, for now anyway, Kilroy can get back to the mundane day-job...

I had a bet on that young lady from S Club winning at 20/1 with Ladbrokes this morning.

She was only 6/1 with Hills and Betfair so it sonded like a bit of value.

seems like a better bet than archer, speechley, kilroy or even ken russell winning...

I bet on a popstar. He was AdamAnt of his victory.
