Matt Flint

29-year-old tap dancer Matt Flint from Scarborough is the odds-on favourite to be named as Britain's favourite dancer during the So You Think You Can Dance live final this Saturday night. The last show in the current series will see Matt complete against Katie Love, Kirsty Swain and Luke Jackson.

if the bookies odds are to believe it's Matt’s to lose, with Paddy Power naming him the 2/5 frontrunner. Katie Love however could steal it from him with a great routine - she’s second favourite at 4/1.

Both Kirsty and Luke however re outsides in the running, both trailing at 8/1 in the odds.


This weekend will be the contestants' final chance to win your votes with a number of routines as they compete for a £50,000 prize and a trip to Hollywood where they'll perform on the finale of the US show!

Chatting ahead of Saturday's big final, Matt said: "I said to myself at the start getting to the final was the aim. I know now I'll have danced every dance. But now I'm here, to win would put all the hard work, not just in the competition but from the last ten years, all that working and slogging, would become worthwhile."

Meanwhile asked what she'd do with the prize money if she wins, Katie explained: "I think I would like to use the money properly. I'd like to invest it in a production. I do want to do something with it and not throw it away. But the first thing to do would be to buy an extravagant breakfast on Sunday morning."

Kirsty revealed: "It's a huge prize! Dancing in Hollywood in growing on me. Initially that scared the hell out of me, it was so huge. But now, I'm thinking that just sounds so exciting. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of dancing in Hollywood. And the money, well anyone my age would love a bit of money, wouldn't they? I think I've spent it ten times over already!"

So You Think You Can Dance: The Final airs this weekend at 7:15PM on BBC One, with US singer J Lo performing in the results show from 10PM.
