Hairdresser 'next for the chop'
The full Big Brother line-up
Fun-loving Helen (far right) wanted to teach everyone to dance
Bookmaker William Hill has shortened the odds on Welsh hairdresser Helen Adams being the next person to be evicted from the Big Brother house.

The "wannabe IT girl" from Cwmbran, south Wales schoolteacher Penny Ellis for first eviction, with 42% (447,337) of viewers voting for her to go.

Helen Adams
She would have spent the money on holiday in Florida
Helen - who celebrated her 23rd birthday in the house - was so prepared to be thrown out on Friday, that she had packed her bags in readiness.

The last person remaining in the house wins the 70,000 cash prize.

Helen had planned to spend it on a trip to Florida if she won.

When she joined the fold, she said she wanted to be on Big Brother to "bring mayhem to the house and teach them all to dance."

Helen is joint favourite with "Mr Perfect" Stuart to be the next evictee.

Stuart is the one viewers like least
The married father-of-three - a director of a communications company - was described by Penny as a "poseur" - after he had said she was the only female housemate he would not sleep with.

He is the least favourite with the viewers, according to a poll on the Big Brother website.

Dean and Brian remain favourites to win with William Hill, sharing 3-1 odds.

The bookmaker is also offering 5-1 odds on there being a punch-up between the contestants during the series.
