ELLIS launched his challenge to bet his way to a £10,000 and fell at the hurdle after getting a little carried away.
His first two bets landed but he went in a third time on volleyball – the first tip for that sport I've seen on this site – and it flopped.
I believe Ellis is giving it another go on Monday and remember it's just a bit of fun.
My pick for Friday was France Under-20s and they won but I got just 4-6 so I'm up to £16.67. I'll let you know where that's going later.
