Three weeks into Strictly Come Dancing 2019 and the competition is seriously hotting up.
Reigning champion Kevin Clifton has already been sent packing with partner Anneka Rice.
The pair were eliminated from the show on Sunday night after failing to impress the judges with the Charleston. In all honesty it was no surprise to see Rice, now 61, suffer an early exit from the show.
Kelvin Fletcher impressed once again in Movie Week and he’s now 11/8 to get his hands on the prestigious Glitter Ball. The former Emmerdale star has wowed judges from day one and will take some beating this year.
Karim Zeroual may well be his biggest threat if the betting odds are anything to go by. The CBBC presenter is 10/3 to win the show outright.
Singer Michelle Visage is 8/1 in the betting to win outright and she’s 2/1 to finish the show as the top woman.
Providing the American with some competition is Emma Barton. The actress, partnered with Anton Du Beke, is 9/4 to be top woman and a tasty looking 9/1 to get her hands on the Glitter Ball.
Radio 1 DJ Dev Griffin is a decent value bet at 10/1 and former Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley is 14/1.
At the other end of the spectrum Mike Bushell and Chris Ramsey remain massive outsiders at 100/1.
Having finished in the bottom two once already David James is a massive 250/1 to win the show outright. In other words, it ain’t happening. The former England goalkeeper is odds on at 4/7 to be eliminated next. Nailed on.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday on BBC 1.
