Strictly Come Dancing

Bullish Punters Back Bill Bailey For Glitterball

Bill Bailey, a 66/1 outsider at the start of the competition, is being well supported to round off his Strictly Come Dancing adventure by waltzing off with the Glitterball trophy this weekend.

Competition has been hotting up behind the popular comedian

..with HRVY and Maisie Smith both scoring perfect 30s for dances in the semi-finals.

But with just days to go before the final performances, Bill Bailey’s grip on favouritism is strengthening after BoyleSports cut him into 4/6 from even money to be the last competitor standing.

Maisie Smith, who was chalked up as the favourite before the series began, has been eased out slightly to 6/1 from 5/1, while YouTube star HRVY remains the biggest danger to Bailey’s chances despite seeing his odds drift to 13/8 from 6/5 this week.
