Ann Widdecombe current price around 25 on the exchange.

In a series full of debate regarding gender and equality she’s the natural home for any viewer / voter who has had their fill of the topics being discussed at length.Straight talking Ann may have views which are in the minority,however she more or less has that minority vote to herself,whilst the rest of the field are all fishing in the same pond.

Previous CBB’s have shown that someone who has views considered wrong by the majority of the population can still attract a sizeable vote ....Hopkins & Davidson the two which immediately spring to mind.

She’s been part of the edit every night so far,and with nominations about to start I’m expecting her to be up for eviction at every opportunity so will remain in focus.When she’s been tackled about her prehistoric views she has remained calm and given her opinions eloquently and with passion.Most viewers won’t agree with these views,but will respect her right to have them.

Currently doing remarkably well on every poll going and showing up well on the current app vote.

Izzy Bizzy let’s back Widdy Plain

I’ll get my coat Sad

Choo Choo !!! Cool

one thing that i really think that will help ann win is how she has took part in every task thats been thrown at her, ok sometimes with a victor meldrew whinge beforehand but she did it.
ricky norwood lost imo coz he refused two tasks in the final week, he lost by the smallest of margins as well

its the little things that sway the undecided on finals night

also i'd say since the final has begun shane j is really struggling to gain any new supporters
tuesday night was level
wednesday night i think ann won clearly with shane j yet again droning on in wayne's ears about ann

ann has definitely picked up more fence sitters since tuesday, so either ann is closing the gap or is going further clear !!

Sometimes I think we have reached real equality in this house. I stood side by side with Danny when we won the right to save a housemate from eviction and we were both nominated and therefore in the line of fire. He willingly took the save I offered him and then let me also take the flak for an unpopular nomination. Nobody batted an eyelid or cried "Egad, sir! Give it to the lady."

There was a time when he would have been labelled a coward and blackballed from all his clubs. No longer. We stood there as full equals. Hallelujah! At other times I think we will never make it to equality because every time some of the women have to take a tough decision about others they turn on the blinking waterworks.

No man comes from the boardroom snivelling because he had to do something personally difficult so why must women? My teeth grit but I try not to take issue with them just because they are so upset! Instead I grumble to Big Brother about the snowflake generation.



pure class ann, worthy of the win just for this Cool

what an interesting statement, considering she's been backed since day 1 Wink

The end being in sight, reflections and reminiscences fill conversation, so I suppose this is as good a time as any to ask whether I am glad or otherwise that I finally, after years of saying no, agreed to take part.

I shall not know the final answer to that question until I see what has been shown.

I shall not bother reading commentary as I shall make up my own mind about the wisdom or folly I demonstrated in taking part but whether or not I was deceived when promised that this Celebrity Big Brother would depart from the usual tawdry formula I will eventually find out from what was broadcast.
