Ahmed runaway favourite for BB5 boot

Ahmed has become the most likely contestant to get the boot in Big Brother eviction history.

Ahmed has become the most likely contestant to get the boot in Big Brother eviction history.

Dan, Nadia, Shell, Stuart, Victor and Ahmed are all up for the public vote on Friday.

The six are all in line for eviction after passing this week’s Boot Camp task - led by sergeants Michelle and Jason.

The pair were told that all the housemates would be nominated, apart from themselves, if they passed their military-style task.

But if the housemates failed, then only the love-struck Geordie and Scottish muscleman would be up for the chop.

When the group discovered their secret, Somalian-born Ahmed laid into 23-year-old Michelle for getting him to take part in a task to save her own neck.

But Ahmed’s temper appears to have worked against him, and the 44-year-old is now the most likely housemate to be evicted in Big Brother history.

Meanwhile, Ahmed’s enemy Michelle has eclipsed Nadia to become favourite to win the Channel 4 show.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes said Ahmed had beaten the 1-16 record set by Lisa, the shop manager from South Wales, in the last series.

Spokesman Warren Lush said: “The odds on Ahmed going have been slashed to a record 1-20 from 1-3 overnight.

“This makes him the most likely housemate to go ever. We are on the verge of closing the book as everybody wants to back Ahmed to go.

“It’s one-way traffic – we’ve hardly taken a penny on the other five housemates.”

Most of the housemates were sympathetic to Michelle and Jason when the truth came out yesterday.

But after rowing with Michelle and reducing her to tears, Ahmed spent the day in a sulk.

Eventually Portuguese-born Nadia asked him what was wrong.

“Everybody hates me… it’s a fact,” he complained.

“I’m not blaming anyone, but I just want to know – what’s wrong with me?

“No-one ever speaks in my favour, always against me. My role is that everybody’s against me,” he said.
