Trench Warfare On Beeb Sees Titchmarsh Tumble For Tango

Alan Titchmarsh’s odds of taking part in this year’s Strictly have tumbled after a rather bizarre misunderstanding on BBC Breakfast on Tuesday morning. At the end of last week, he was 5/1 with William Hill to take part, yet is now 5/2.

Carol Kirkwood is 1/6 to take part with Richard Madeley 1/2 and Shane Richie 4/7.

“Titchmarsh double dug himself into an unwitting trench and on the back of the misunderstanding, his odds have taken a tumble for Strictly,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

To appear on Strictly Come Dancing 2015: 1/6 Carol Kirkwood, 1/2 Richard Madeley, 4/7 Shane Richie, 6/4 Dermot O’Leary, 9/4 Georgia May Foote, 5/2 Adrian Chiles, 5/2 Alan Titchmarsh, 3/1 Antony Cotton, 3/1 Shane Ritchie, 7/2 Gordon Ramsay, 4/1 Hetti Bywater, 4/1 Judy Finnigan, 5/1 Mel B, 5/1 Ruth Landford, 6/1 Mike Tindall
