Actor getting lots of celeb support on Twitter

Martin Kemp is the bookies’ favourite to win this summer’s new series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The former EastEnders star, 50, entered the house when the show kicked off on Wednesday and has already gone down a storm, with odds of his victory currently standing at 5/2 on some betting sites.

Kemp’s the clear housewives’ favourite,’ says Jessica Bridges from Ladbrokes.

‘He’s indestructible at the top of the market and it won’t be long before his odds are cut.’

Martin has got the backing of his loved ones too – his son Roman Tweeted a funny pic of the family, including wife Shirlie and daughter Harley, pretending to hold the actor back before he headed for CBB.

We didn’t want to let him go… But he’ll win it… #cbb,‘ Tweeted Roman, 19.

I hope you all enjoy watching my dad for the next few weeks, go easy on him, he’s a sensitive lad… #TeamKemp #KingKemp,

The actor and musician, who found fame in 80s pop group Spandau Ballet, has since gained lots of celeb backing on Twitter.

Lovely to see @realmartinkemp on BB – he should win,’ Tweeted Jude Law’s ex Sadie Frost, 47, whose first husband was Martin‘s brother Gary.

And Boy George, 51, added, ‘Martin to win!
