James Whale enters the Big Brother house

BBC Essex breakfast show host James Whale is a contestant on Channel 5 show Celebrity Big Brother.

But he’s already the least favourite to win in there, with William Hill giving him current odds of 33/1 to win after he made a comment on his way in about women not being equal to men.

He got the most ‘boos’ as he entered the house.

BBC Essex Managing Editor Lou Birt told the BBC that they expect him to return to work on September 5th, after taking a few weeks of unpaid leave. Kath Melandri will be hosting his show until he returns, and we assume his weekly James Whale Radio Show podcast will be taking a break.

We’ll keep you updated on his progress, or you can watch his Twitter account, which is now in the hands of his wife.
