Boookmaker Paddy Power have made ex-Big Brother housemate Ray Shah their 2/1 favourite to dance his way to victory in a one-off charity showing of Jigs ‘n’ Reels on New Years Eve.
Hilda Fay, who plays barmaid Tracy in Fair City is the second favourite in the betting at 5/2, while Showbiz gossiper Trevor Keegan and ex Pogues bassist Cait O’Riordan are the current outsiders to impress the public at 9/1.
“Ray already has lots of fans from his time in the Big Brother house and he’s now best known for ‘Ray Makes Your Day’ on Dublin’s Q102,” said Sharon McHugh, spokesperson for Paddy Power said.
“No doubt he’ll be looking for the public to return the favour and make his day by voting for him on the night!”
