Strictly: You Bet Beke To Be Named Judge?

The Strictly line-up has been confirmed and now they need to fill the gap in the judging panel and Anton du Beke is the current 5/2 favourite. The return of Arlene is offered at 5/1, with Karen Hardy also attracting support at 6/1.

“For a number of years we have felt that Anton has been the natural replacement for Len and he is very much the favourite,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
