Strictly Come Dancing 2013 host Sir Bruce Forsyth has insisted he can't call tomorrow night's final.

Sophie Ellis Bextor, Abbey Clancy, Susanna Reid and Natalie Gumede will compete in the first ever all female Strictly final from tomorrow night.

And Sir Bruce told Alan Carr this week that he had no idea who would win.

“It’s never been like this, the show has never been like this because of the standard," he 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.”

But Sir Brucie did single out favourite to win Susanna Reid for special comment, saying: “She’s [Susanna's] done wonders. When you think about it she’s doing the news reading job most mornings of the week..”

Eliminated celeb Ben Cohen was also praised by the 85-year-old for having improved "incredibly" during his time on the show.

Sir Bruce told Alan Carr on Chatty Man: “The person who showed more improvement than anybody was Ben Cohen.

"Ben actually, and this is absolutely the truth, when he came to the show he didn’t know who the devil I was, didn’t know me at all and had no idea of the show, he’d never seen the show, so his improvement was absolutely incredible.”

He added: “He left I thought very unfairly myself, but when he left, the dance he did, that night was unbelievable.”

Ahead of tomorrow night's final and bookies are still finding it hard to pick a definite favourite.

Abbey Clancy's odds have been cut once again after receiving 72% of all wagers placed since the semi-final, which has left her chalked up as the 9/4 second favourite for victory on Saturday night.

Susanna remains the favourite at 11/10, or it's a 7/2 shot that Sophie lands the glitterball trophy. But unfortunately for former long-term favourite Natalie her odds have drifted out to double figures at 10/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "With 72% off all wagers placed on Abbey this week the money suggests an upset is on the cards in the most exciting Strictly grand final yet."
