Strictly Come Dancing 2013 final: Natalie Gumede tipped to be first out

Natalie Gumede

Natalie Gumede is being tipped to be the first out of Strictly Come Dancing 2013 in the final.

This weekend will see Strictly's first ever all female final as Natalie competes against Sophie Ellis Bextor, Abbey Clancy and Susanna Reid for the Glitterball trophy.

But bookies reckon the Corrie will be the first celeb out in the live shows, leaving in fourth place.

It follows Natalie being in the dance off for the first time on Sunday night, with the judges saving her against Patrick Robinson.

Only Sophie and Susanna have yet to be in the bottom two, with BBC Newsreader Susanna now the new odds-on favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing according to Ladbrokes.

Despite not topping the leader board on 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."
