Gary Edwards NEW Favourite For Strictly Judge

Gary Edwards is the new odds-on favourite with William Hill to replace Len Goodman as judge on Strictly Come Dancing.

Originally priced as a 16/1 outsider, Edwards has overtaken Anton Du Beke at the head of the betting after sustained support.

Edwards price has collapsed from 16/1 to new 4/6 favourite, with Du Beke’s odds drifting out to 2/1 from 4/6.

“This is the sort of market where we might not see vast sums of money, but the interest we do see is generally well informed. Overwhelmingly, the support has been for Gary Edwards, who could be waltzing in to the judge’s hot seat,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

To Replace Len Goodman As A Judge On Strictly: 4/6 Gary Edwards, 2/1 Anton Du Beke, 4/1 Brendan Cole, 5/1 Karen Hardy, 12/1 Ian Waite, 14/1 Arlene Phillips, 14/1 Robin Windsor, 16/1 Gleb Savchenko, 16/1 Mandy Moore, 16/1 Ola Jordan, 16/1 Tom Chambers, 20/1 OR BIGGER THE REST
