New Strictly Favourite After Jay Jives Into Contention
After wowing the audiences and the judges with his jive, Jay’s odds of winning Strictly have tumbled considerably from 3/1 to 11/8 making him William Hill’s clear favourite. Conversely, Peter Andre’s odds are 7/2 from 2/1 making him the second favourite.
“We had Andre pegged as a clear favourite but Jay has just raised the bar considerably and it will take some supreme strutting from the other contestants to catch him in the next few weeks,” said William hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Strictly winner: 11/8 Jay McGuinness; 7/2 Peter Andre; 7/1 Helen George; 7/1 Katie Derham; 10/1 Anita Rani; 10/1 Georgia May Foote; 12/1 Kellie Bright; 40/1 Daniel O’Donnell; 50/1 Jamelia; 50/1 Kirsty Gallagher; 66/1 Anthony Ogogo; 66/1 Jeremy Vine; 80/1 Ainsley Harriott; 100/1 Carol Kirkwood
