Bill Bailey Is No Joke As New Strictly Come Dancing Favourite

Strictly Come Dancing

Outright Betting

We have reacted fast to the latest Strictly Come Dancing performances after punters rallied behind not one celebrity, but two.

Comedian Bill Bailey has now gone from outsider, to dark horse, to favourite in the competition. Following his Paso Doble on Saturday night that earned him 26 points from a possible a 30, he is now the front runner to lift the Glitterball.

Bailey was gradually backed into 11/2 from 66/1 since the contestants were announced.

His dance moves are impressing the judges and viewers alike as they have now made him the 6/4 market leader.

The other celebrity that has us already counting the cost if she were to go on and win the show is Ranvir Singh. Ranvir presents ITV’s Good Morning Britain and works as a relief newsreader on ITV News.

The presenter topped the leaderboard with 27 points for her Foxtrot and that has seen her odds cut into 12/1 from 50/1.
