Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Craig Revel Horwood tips Denise Van Outen to win

Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly 2012)

Craig Revel Horwood has tipped Denise Van Outen to win Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

Denise, partnered with Strictly pro dancer James Jordan, has impressed on the show so far, remaining in the top half of the leaderboard.

Despite still having some way to go to overtake favourite Louis Smith, Craig reckons that Denise has the "right mentality" to win the show.

He told Strictly's BBC spin-off show It Takes Two: "Denise is still shining for me. She comes with problems, but they all come with problems."

He added to It Takes Two host Zoe Ball: "But I think she'll win the day because she's the right mentality for it."

With the bookies, Louis Smith is the man to beat and he is the red hot 5/4 favourite to win this year’s title.

“Louis is going to be very hard to beat, he is surfing the Olympic wave like a gold medal winner and I for one would not be betting against him,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Tune in to this week’s show on Saturday 3rd November at 6.30pm for Strictly Come Dancing with Strictly Come Dancing: The Results on Sunday 4th November at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
