Pete blows it?
13:30 18 August 2006
Pete has blown his chances of winning 'Big Brother' by romping with Nikki, it has been claimed.
The Tourette's sufferer has been the hot favourite to win the £100,000 prize ever since the show started two months ago.
However, Pete, 24, was reportedly two per cent behind Aisleyne in phone votes yesterday (17.08.06) just before tonight's final (18.08.06).
It appears he has been gradually losing popularity since his romance with former evictee Nikki blossomed after she returned to the house.
A show insider said: "It looks like putting Nikki back in the house has totally backfired for Pete."
According to reports, around £2 million was staked on Aisleyne winning yesterday (17.08.06).
Simon Clare, a spokesperson for bookmakers Coral, said: "The gamble on Aisleyne has smashed all previous records. In the last 48 hours we have taken thousands of bets on her across Britain. If she wins, bookies will pay out millions."
