Should the talented teenager be crowned as the winner of the hit TV show next week he would share the majority of his £50,000 winnings with his mother Teresa and four sisters, Carly, Toni, Leanne and Joanne.

ODDS-on Big Brother favourite Anthony Ogogo is pledging to spend much of his hoped-for cash prize bonanza on his family.

Should the talented teenager be crowned as the winner of the hit TV show next week he would share the majority of his £50,000 winnings with his mother Teresa and four sisters, Carly, Toni, Leanne and Joanne.

That was the aim of the 19-year-old Triple A Boxing Club and England international fighter prior to entering the reality television show home on January 3.

Speaking to The Journal after a live appearance on spin-off E4 show Big Brother's Little Brother, on Wednesday, Anthony's 20-year-old sister, Toni, said: “It was really strange to be on the show talking about Anthony and have all these people know so much about him. He's my brother and we had all these people talking to us about him … it was surreal. All the family were there, my mum got four kisses and cuddles from Dermot O'Leary.”

In the past week, the former Kirkley High School pupil has seen a fledgling rapport with Jade ended by her eviction, survived being interrogated by the SAS, and despite missing out on £5,000 he was given immunity from tonight's double eviction.

And in the past few days, a blossoming romance has seen the boxer forming a close friendship with classically trained musician Calista.

Toni said: “I know Anthony is a good-looking boy who will get the attention. But I know as well that he will not get big headed about it - and if he keeps his feet on the ground and remains level-headed then who knows? While I was asked about what he would spend the money on if he won Anthony said the day he left he would give mum half of the winnings, treat his sisters and then buy himself a car. The whole family is just so chuffed, and really proud of him.”
