Craig Revel Horwood has revealed his tip to win Strictly Come Dancing 2018.

Ahead of the Blackpool special - and with a month to go now until the final - Craig has named his ones to watch.

And there's good news for Stacey Dooley.

Craig told Radio Times this week: "I can see her winning. She has a lot of the audience on her side, she's very popular and so far she's getting through this with flying colours."

It's also great news for Stacey's pro partner Kevin Clifton, who has been runner up on the show for four series now.

Kevin revealed some on the Strictly team have been tipping him to finally lift the glitterball with Stacey.

"There's some pressure as I've been runner-up so many times. Everyone says this year is your year but I don't know!" he added.

Meanwhile, Craig suggested that Ashley Roberts' top marks may ironically end up being her downfall.

He explained: "She's one of the best dancers I think we've ever seen on the show. She's at the top of the leaderboard all the time! That might discourage people from voting for her."

Indeed, although she's not been topping the scoreboard, Stacey is ahead of Ashley as the current bookies' favourite to win the show.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Strictly Come Dancing is at the half way point and Blackpool is just around the corner... It appears Stacey Dooley can do no wrong as her odds continue to shorten for the Glitterball trophy as punters flock to back her.”

However there are still many weeks left to dance...

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday 17th November at 6.45pm live from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, with the results show on Sunday 18th November at 7.20pm on BBC One. As well as the latest routines, we will be treated to a special performance from superstars Take That performing their new single Out Of Our Heads.
