Strictly Come Dancing: Joe Wins – Same Gender Couple In 2018

Joe McFadden was a fantastic result for Strictly fans having started the final as the 8/11 odds on favourite.


William Hill were impressed by the new judging panel and it is a very short price at 1/3 that all four return next year. The big question that remains is whether Strictly introduce the first same gender partnership in 2018 - Hills are offering 6/4 that they do.


Paula Radcliffe is 5/1 to be a contestant in 2018, with Mike Tindall 8/1 and Louise Minchin 10/1.


“Strictly keeps getting better and it was another wonderful series,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “We fully expect the judging panel to stay the same and there is a real chance we will see a same gender pairing next year.”
