There have already been many of the surprises and controversy that we’ve come to expect from Britain’s most popular reality dancing show and Strictly Come Dancing looks set to throw up a few more surprises before the last dance.
This is certainly true if Irish bookmakers Paddy Power are to be believed. Their outright winner market has the top four contenders being listed between 2/1 – 9/2. Leading the way is Matt Baker who is listed at 2/1, but he’s closely followed by Scott Maslen at 5/2. Then just behind them are Pamela Stephenson and Kara Tointon, who are both listed at 9/2.
In with slightly less of a chance according to the bookmakers are Michelle Willliams, Patsy Kensit and Welsh rugby player Gavin Henson who are listed at 80/1, 66/1 and 33/1 respectively. However, with many more weeks to go, this year’s Strictly competition looks to be one of the most open affairs yet.
