BLIND housemate Mikey is the early favourite to win the show, it has emerged.

The Scottish radio producer is listed at 4/1 to claim the title of Big Brother 9 champion with bookmaker Ladbrokes.

But, while Mikey is winning the popularity stakes, outgoing single mother Alexandra had only attracted one wager in the early going - a measly £1 at long odds of 50/1.

Ladbrokes spokesman Nick Weinberg said that in a house “full of wannabes and misfits” Mikey was the early fans' favourite.

He said: “At this stage in the series, we've not seen a more popular contestant.”

Of Alexandra, Mr Weinberg added: “She faces a battle to avoid becoming the BB villain. She could end up as unpopular as Charley if she's not careful.”
