Strictly: No Bets On Balls – But Big Mac Set To Shine

As of 10:30 on Friday, Ed Balls, despite being favourite, has failed to attract a single bet with William Hill to be the next contestant voted off Strictly. Anastacia is 2/1 second favourite with Naga Munchetty a tempting 9/2.


“Suddenly people are suggesting that Ed Balls could be the next John Sergeant ,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “But personally I think that is a little harsh on his dancing.”


Meanwhile Danny Mac is very much the favourite to win at 2/1, with Louise 4/1 and Robert Rinder now 7/1 from an original 25/1.


Strictly Next Elimination: 7/4 Ed Balls, 2/1 Anastacia, 9/2 Naga Munchetty, 8/1 Lesley Joseph, 9/1 Tameka Empson, 25/1 Greg Rutherford, 33/1 Laura Whitmore, 33/1 Robert Rinder, 40/1 Ore Oduba, 66/1 Claudia Fragapane, 66/1 Daisy Lowe, 66/1 Will Young, 100/1 Danny Mac, 100/1 Louise Redknapp


Strictly Come Dancing Winner: 2/1 Danny Mac, 4/1 Louise Redknapp, 7/1 Robert Rinder, 8/1 Will Young, 9/1 Claudia Fragapane, 10/1 Greg Rutherford, 12/1 Daisy Lowe, 14/1 Laura Whitmore, 16/1 Ore Oduba, 40/1 Naga Munchetty, 50/1 Lesly Joseph, 66/1 Tameka Empson, 80/1 Anastacia, 100/1 Ed Balls
