I Think I Better Leave Right Now…Bookies Refund Strictly Bets On Will Young

Following Will Young’s withdrawal from this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, William Hill have decided to refund all bets placed on him to win the show.

“Before a single dance was unveiled, Will Young was the favourite to win and while he slipped down the betting over the first couple of weeks, there were plenty of people who backed him and they can now reinvest on someone else to win this year’s show,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Strictly winner: 11/8 Danny Mac; 7/2 Louise Redknapp; 11/2 Claudia Fragapane; 8/1 Greg Rutherford; 10/1 Robert Rinder; 11/1 Ore Oduba; 14/1 Daisy Lowe; 20/1 Laura Whitmore; 80/1 Lesley Joseph; 80/1 Naga Munchetty; 100/1 Anastacia; 100/1 Ed Balls
