More money coming in for Alex Scott to be crowned Strictly winner 2019



You know Christmas is fast approaching when there’s talk of Strictly Come Dancing.

The show returns to BBC One on Saturday 7th September for its 17th series. Madness. Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly will once again take up presenting duties, while Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Bruno Tonioli will take their place on the judging panel, where they will run the rule over 15 eager celebrities.

Former Arsenal and England footballer Alex Scott is the early favourite to win the show. She’s 9/2 to get her hands on the sparkling trophy after out-dancing Chris Kamara and David Ginola en route to winning the Comic Relief Strictly special last year.

Eastenders star and self confessed Strictly fanatic Emma Barton, who plays Honey Mitchell, was one of the first names to be announced. She’s currently second favourite to win the show at 7/1 and 4/1 to be the top woman.

Catherine Tyldeslay, once of Coronation Street, will be hitting the dance floor this year.

The former Rovers Return barmaid is 8/1 to be crowned 2019 Strictly Come Dancing Champion.

Not one to shy away from the limelight, Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing confirmed he’ll be competing in this year’s series.

The 30 year old admitted to having “a little bit of rhythm.” But will it be enough to secure victory this year? He’s 8/1 to get his hands on the famous trophy.

Swapping the decks for the dance floor Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin could be the dark horse of this year’s competition. Breaking the news on Radio 1, he said: “I am really good at dancing. I never had any formal dance training, but I am pretty good.” He’s 12/1 to go all the way.

Flying the flag for the Dad dancers out there Olympic rower James Cracknell admitted to having little rhythm. He’s 18/1 to win outright.

Aneeka Rice will be this year’s oldest contestant at the age of 60. The broadcaster who rose to fame on the 80’s game show Treasure Hunt, will be looking to prove age is just a number. She’s 33/1 to be crowned champion.

Better known for hanging a safe pair of hands David James will swap the goalkeeper gloves for a pair of dancing shoes. The former footballer is one of the outsiders for the competition at 40/1.

The rest of the lineup includes CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual (8/1), Youtuber Saffron Baker (9/1), model Emma Weymouth (12/1), comedian Chris Ramsey (18/1), Paralympian Will Bayley (25/1), presenter Mike Bushell (40/1) and singer Michelle Visage (50/1).
