Susanna Reid tipped to win in tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2013 results

Strictly Come Dancing

Susanna Reid is the bookies' favourite to win in tonight's Strictly Come Dancing 2013 results.

Despite not topping the leader board last Saturday night it hasn't deterred punters from piling into her odds, and such is the support for Susanna she now finds herself chalked up as the odds-on 10/11 favourite to land this year's glitterball trophy.

And one punter from Manchester who firmly believes the BBC presenter will win staked £10,000 on her to do so during Saturday night's semi-final at odds of 6/4.

Abbey is also proving a popular bet as the 11/4 second favourite, followed by Sophie next in the betting at 4/1, which leaves former long-term favourite Natalie to drift out to 8/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Susanna's sizzling performances have made the headlines and punters are backing her in their droves to be crowned victorious.

"Natalie was the red-hot favourite for so long but we cannot give her away at the moment."

She added: "If there's going to be an upset the money suggests Abbey can take the title back home to Liverpool."

Indeed, the bookmakers report that almost three-quarters (72%) of all bets this week were on Abbey to win the show.

However despite the odds firmly in Susanna's favour, show hosts Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly insisted it could anyway on the night.

“It’s never been like this, the show has never been like this because of the standard,” Sir Bruce explained. I mean people have been going on there after week 3 and 4, and they’ve done a routine that you can’t believe they learned.”

Tess added: "This is absolutely, without doubt the closest final we have had in a decade of Strictly. Nobody can call it, and nobody can predict the winner which is what makes it so exciting."
