Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen is the new favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2012.

William Hill make Denise van Outen their new favourite at 11/10 to win Strictly Come Dancing, ahead of Louis Smith who is 15/8 second favourite.

“The odds suggest that Strictly is a two horse race, Denise has surged to the front but Louis might have something in reserve!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

The weekend saw some very harsh scores from the judges, but Denise easily topped the leaderboard again.

It was the fourth week in a row that the West End performer was on top, scoring her fourth ten of the series, remaining the only celebrity this year to get perfect marks from the judges.

Louis however came under attack from the judges, with his Paso Doble getting his joint lowest score of the series.

Dark horse Dani Harmer continued to impress, with a top score of 36 points, matched by Westlife's Nicky Byrne.

Kimberley Walsh and Lisa Riley both did well, but Michael Vaughan and Victoria Pendleton landed bottom of the leaderboard.

It saw Victoria and Michael in the dance off, with Olympian Victoria being sent home.

Next week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 1st December at 6.50pm with the results show on Sunday 2nd December at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
