Claudia Winkleman new favourite for Strictly Come Dancing 2014 host

claudia winkleman

Claudia Winkleman is now the odds-on favourite to replace Sir Bruce Forsyth as Strictly host according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have slashed the odds of her making the step up from co-host to just 4/7 (from 3/1) after she was backed by nearly 90% of fans betting on the new presenter of the show, leaving former hot tip Graham Norton to drift to 3/1.

It now appears a two horse race to step into Sir Bruce's shoes as only Anton Du Beke (6/1) and John Barrowman (8/1) have single-figure odds.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "Strictly fans have spoken and their money suggests there's only one woman for the job. The latest betting suggests the job is now Winkleman's to lose."
