Anton Set For Judging Role On Strictly?

Anton Du Beke is the clear favourite in the betting for who will take over as a judge on Strictly when Len Goodman steps down. William Hill make him 5/2 ahead of Arlene Phillips at 5/1 and Karen Hardy at 6/1.

“Arlene Phillips has been popular in the market and we reckon there are plenty of people who would love to see her return to the panel, however, it is Anton who heads the betting and with reason as he is the one that the majority are tipping up,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

To be a Strictly judge in 2017: 5/2 Anton du Beke; 5/1 Arlene Phillips; 6/1 Karen Hardy; 7/1 Ian Waite; 8/1 Robin Windsor; 10/1 Gleb Savchenko; 10/1 Mandy Moore; 10/1 Tom Chambers; 16/1 BAR
