RuPaul’s Drag Race Star Courtney Act has become the favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

The reality star is by far the most likely contestant to triumph according to the bookmakers, with one even making Act odds-on to win the competition.

In contrast, transgender presenter India Willoughby‘s chances of winning are rated at 100/1 with some bookies.

She is rated as being the likeliest to leave during the CBB house’s first eviction on Friday.

Since entering the house, India has found herself embroiled in a number of controversies.

She has been misgendered by some of her fellow housemates.

She has also said genderfluid people “cheapen” the transgender struggle.

Courtney, who identifies as genderqueer, has been enlightening the house on several issues around gender.

Earlier this week, she gave fellow housemate Andrew Brady a full drag makeover.

India responded by comparing drag to blackface.

Courtney, real name Shane Jenek, has come to blows with Ann Widdecombe over same-sex marriage.

The drag star, whose home country of Australia just legalised same-sex marriage, told the retired MP they had researched her voting record and were far from impressed.

Courtney has certainly won over fans online.

“I am so proud of you!!! You are beautiful inside and out and you are extremely soft spoken and intelligent,” one said.

“You are going to go all the way to the top”.

“We stan her,” another said.
