i don't think it was their negative vote. i think it was cos coleen was a surprise t2 (i know not a surprise to some on here but to most of us mortals) so all jedward voters had already shot their bolt but coleen supporters were rejuvenated.

Strange, wasn`t it? Not just today and night, but all along there have been one or more keen layers. Particularly so when you bear in mind that most of the forum recognised her chances, and were backing her, yet her price stayed high. Don`t think anyone on here has declared themselves a big layer? Today, thoughts of insiders were crossing my mind, which only got worse as Bianca and Nicola left, and it began to look like the market `knew`. Really pleasing too see it was just business as normal in Specials; the market knows nothing!

Similarities with the Cocozza / Denise Walsh series abound.

Both young XF rejects who had revealed a hitherto unknown decent character and positivism in the series (but with flaws), both trading about the same price at close, both beaten by a middle aged Loose Woman who had shown vulnerability.

If only a few people knew what they were doing they could have made a killing still. Last season too many people knew which caused the £20k 1.2 Scotty T bets (from 3.0+ the start of the day). Clearly people falling over each other to pick up the free stuff.

There weren`t any. Easy for some of us to start fearing such bogeymen and their skullduggery when the market`s gone mad, so I hereby officially propose that whatever the `Golden Rule No. 1 ` is/was, (GB2 will know), it should be replaced with `the market knows nothing`. Perhaps the most important rule for any would-be winner to remember. Have a post-it or something stuck to our screens, lest we ever forget.

I did strongly naysay people's suspicions about the drop to odds-on at the time but without giving any personal info. A year has passed, less shy. 3/2/16 I had Tiffany and Steph green and Scotty red. The discrepancy was stupidly huge and I thought I had got it all wrong. So from then, when he was still 5s, to 1.87 at 5/2/16 I was his main backer, quite aggressively so.

I started backing him again at about 1.2 (I can't remember why). Nothing like a 20K bet though, so there probably were insiders at the end when he was odds-on, but by then at least there were more indications that he was going to win and he had lots of backers.

Bianca T2 is an odder one for me. If BB didn't mess with the vote tallies it could have been her management multi-voting.

Grin Glad to assist. His rapid drop from about 1.87 to about 1.2 I did find suspicious. (Then at 1.2 there must have been some development that made me think he was value again, unusually as it's a horrible price),
