Strictly Come Dancing 2018: There's a new favourite to win the series

Latest Strictly Come Dancing odds

There's a brand new favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2018 following the weekend's Blackpool special.

YouTube star Joe Sugg has replaced Stacey Dooley as the one to beat in Strictly Come Dancing after his odds once again shortened and saw him waltz to the head of the betting.


The vlogger scored an impressive 38 for his quickstep to Dancin’ Fool by Copacabana and saw his odds cut to 6/4 from 12/5 as his supporters attacked his odds.

Stacey Dooley had been the favourite to win for weeks and was beginning to look unstoppable before her support went cold leaving her odds stalled at 6/4. Her salsa to Gina G’s ‘Ooh Ahh’ scored a disappointing 33 which resulted in her odds drifting out to 7/4 second favouritism.

Faye Tozer also experienced a drift in the race for the Glitterball and despite scoring 38 for her Paso Doble, punters haven’t been keen on the Steps star and she is now 5/1 from 9/2 to win.

Also priced at 7/1 is Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, who topped the leaderboard with a perfect 40 for her Jive. However she remains unchanged to win as the support just isn’t there.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for bookmakers BoyleSports commented: “Just two weeks ago we thought Stacey Dooley had the Glitterball hook, line and sinker, but with just a month to go until the finals, Joe Sugg has taken over as the new favourite.

"Fresh support came in for Joe off the back of his Samba last week seeing his odds cut to 12/5 from 7/2, but his Quickstep has put him out in front as further support made him 6/4 and the largest liability in the book.”
