Strictly Come Dancing: David Walliams Backed To Be Next Brucie!

Claudia Winkelman is the red hot favourite to be named as Bruce Forsyth’s replacement at 1/4 but she will need to keep her eye on a new entrant into the market. William Hill have installed David Walliams as a 16/1 shot following a number of requests.

“David Walliams has said he would take the job if offered it and the 16/1 looks a decent bet,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
