Can Debbie McGee win Strictly Come Dancing 2017?

Debbie McGee's odds of winning Strictly Come Dancing have been dramatically cut.

However she still faces an uphill battle to beat current favourite Aston Merrygold, who topped the scoreboard last night.

It was the first week of live shows and Debbie caused the biggest shock of the weekend finishing second on the scoreboard.

Her Paso Doble - which was given 30 points out of 40 from the judges - has left Ladbrokes slashing her odds of winning to just 7/1 from 20/1 after the surprisingly impressive performance in Week One.

The bookies now make the celeb fourth-favourite to win after just one round of performances, having previously been considered a rank outsider.

Aston Merrygold was favourite for the Glitter Ball before any couple took to the dance floor, and his odds have been trimmed from 3/1 into 5/2 after a stellar performance to close the show.

Meanwhile, Brian Conley has leapfrogged Simon Rimmer and is the new 2/1 favourite to be the first act eliminated from the competition.

As always, there is no results show tonight with no celebs going home the first weekend. Instead, the first elimination takes place next Sunday night.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Aston may have impressed the judges, but the latest odds are suggesting Debbie stole the show on the opening night as far as punters were concerned - and we're already considering her a genuine contender for the crown."
