Is Mel B Set To Spice Up Strictly?

William Hill have halved the price of Mel B taking part in Strictly Come Dancing from 10/1 to 5/1 as speculation mounts that she has signed. Meanwhile weather forecaster Carol Kirkwood looks all but certain to be taking part at 1/2, with Richard Madeley 6/4. Another former X Factor team member Dermot O’Leary is a 6/1 shot to take part and don’t rule out Chris Evans at 9/1.

“We think it would be a little unfair on the other contestants, as Mel has already appeared on the American version but it would certainly annoy Simon Cowell,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
