Jon and Justine face Big Brother chop

Boring Jon was tonight nominated for the second consecutive week to be given the boot from Big Brother.

Boring Jon was tonight nominated for the second consecutive week to be given the boot from Big Brother.

But bookmaker Ladbrokes ranks his fellow nominee Justine as favourite to get the chop on Friday evening.

Despite his dull monologues on anything that takes his fancy, many Big Brother fans think Jon’s waffling is adding a bit of colour to the house.

The pair learned this afternoon that they had been nominated to get the boot.

Ladbrokes gave Justine odds of 4/7 to be evicted and put Jon at 5/4.

Spokesman Warren Lush said: “Jon’s popularity with punters has grown in recent days – on Friday he was a 50/1 shot to win but now he is just 10/1 and we don’t fancy that he’ll be going this Friday. Punters believe it’s curtains for Justine.”

Jon, the 29-year-old data strategy manager from Staines, west London, evaded eviction last week when four nominees faced the axe. Anouska was the first out, drawing nearly half the public’s votes.

Justine, 27, a sales manager from Leeds, looked crestfallen when her name was announced

“Someone get Justine a fag,” yelled Sissy. Justine simply mumbled: “I knew it’d be me.”

Jon was resigned to his name being read out. “Thought so,” he said.

Then he appeared to apologise to his friends and family outside the house, telling them: “I’m sorry everybody, I’m sorry I’m really s**t at this.”
