Harry Judd and Jason Donovan continue to dominate the outright betting for 2011 Strictly Come Dancing, although there are still at least five celebrities that can win the glitter ball.
Chelsee Healey seems to be improving every week, while Holly Valance is still strutting her stuff with Artem and Robbie Savage has recovered after a poor start to dance his way into contention.
Judd is the favourite with most bookmakers and the McFly drummer is a best price 2/1 (Sky Bet – £10 free bet) to claim victory after a series of consistently strong performances, something which suggests he will feature in the three-way final.
Donovan can count on the housewife vote when it comes to the crunch, with the former heartthrob also demonstrating some neat moves, although he doesn’t have a personality which makes him naturally popular. The earnest ex-Neighbours actor is a 2/1 chance (Paddy Power – £100 free betting) to claim victory.
Meanwhile, Nancy Dell’Olio finally bit the dust last weekend after the Italian failed to knock out Audley Harrison in the elimination, although it is now the boxer who is odds-on favourite to walk, with bet365 offering 8/11 about the Olympic star.
Lulu could also be in trouble as the field narrows down to ten dancers, with the singer a 3/1 shot, while Anita Dobson could also be vulnerable.
Perhaps we might even see Alex Jones in the bottom two considering that she doesn’t have an obvious fanbase and might come a cropper against more established personalities.
