The bookmakers are struggling to split Harry Judd and Jason Donovan at the moment, with the McFly drummer the outstanding performer in Week 4 which saw he and his partner Aliona awarded a total of 35 points from the judges.
It means that Judd is now a 2/1 chance (bet365 – £200 free bets) to claim the glitter ball and it is hard to see the youngster finishing outside the top three with the way that he’s dancing.
Donovan was uncharacteristically sloppy when tallying 27 points with Kristina and perhaps it was just a blip for the Australian who has previously shot over 30 for each week that he has danced. The Neighbours actor is available at 9/4.
Chelsee Healey has also got a chance and seems to be growing in confidence at the moment, with Pasha helping her to collect 36 points last week and she is now a 7/1 poke (Sky Bet – £10 free betting) to win Strictly.
Holly Valance is out to 8/1 and Robbie Savage’s peculiar popularity means that the Welshman can’t easily be ruled out, although it is shaping up to be a five-horse race.
Russell Grant is struggling with injury and there is plenty of attention on the Next Eviction market, where Nancy Dell’Olio is favourite once again, although the Italian seems to be adept at side-stepping departure and it could instead pay to back Lulu to dance for the final time.
