Alexandra Burke remains the favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2017.

However there is competition brewing...


Debbie McGee has been cut to 5/1 from 7/1 to win Strictly Come Dancing after she topped the leaderboard on Halloween week with her almost perfect scoring Charleston.

Alexandra Burke remains the favourite for the Glitterball trophy, but her odds have been eased out to 12/5 from 9/4 after she placed third in the leaderboard for her Tango.

Aston Merrygold is holding out as the second favourite to win at 5/2 as he continues to impress and score high for his performances. One to watch, Gemma Atkinson suffered a slight drift, to 4/1 from 7/2, after her Jive received mixed reviews.

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “Debbie McGee has been impressive throughout Strictly Come Dancing, but she suffered a blip which saw he odds drift out to 7/1, however after her Charleston scored 39 at the weekend, she has begun to move her way back up the betting as she is cut into 5/1.”

She added “This year’s winner is going to be tough to call as favourite to win Alexandra appears to losing her grip on the top spot and there are three celebs waiting to claim it from her, Aston, Gemma and Debbie.”
