Jake Returns As Strictly Jolly

It’s the semi-final of Strictly Come Dancing and Jake Wood is the new favourite to win.

The Eastenders star had a bit of a wobble over the last few weeks and filtered down the betting and as a result however, he has pulled it back in the closing weeks and is now back as the favourite to win.

Jake was the joint favourite alongside Frankie Bridge but now holds onto the top spot in the betting by himself just days before their semi-final performances.

Frankie Bridge has drifted right out to 9/4 as support for the Disco Love singer began to dwindle with punters setting their sights elsewhere. Caroline Flack has been cut into the now 2/1 second favourite from 11/4 following a flood of money on the presenter to win the glitterball trophy.

One celebrity will miss out on a spot in the final this weekend and it is Mark Wright who looks like he could be set for the boot. Mark is currently the odds on favourite to go at 4/6 and is the underdog in the competition at a massive 20/1 to win should he stay. Simon Webbe has escaped the dance off numerous times before, most recently last weekend to the then favourite to win, Pixie Lott, but is in danger of failing victim on Sunday.

The Blue band member is the second favourite to leave the Strictly dance floor and is proving popular at 9/4 to hang up his shoes.
