Dubliner Hughie tipped to win Big Brother

Dubliner Hughie Maughan has been named as clear favourite to win this year’s Big Brother.

Dubliner Hughie tipped to win Big Brother

Hughie, who is a member of the Travelling community recently came out as bisexual.

He has always been high in the ranks but following his boyfriend Ryan Ruckledge’s eviction on Friday, his odds have increased to 4/5 to become the second ever Irish traveller to win, after Paddy Doherty, star of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, won back in 2011.

The odds are closely followed by Jason 4/1 and Andy 6/1, according to BoyleSports.

And rightly so, Hughie has kept us laughing from the minute he entered the house.

From learning what a beer garden is to taking his twerking to the next level after last night’s boozy party, we just can’t get enough.

And it's not just us supporting the Dublin native - Hughie's uncle has uploaded this passionate video backing his nephew and linking his romantic success to the family genes.

With support like that, no wonder he's going far.

Here are some of our favourite moments so far:
