Strictly - Have We Seen The Back Of du Beke – Lots Of Bets On Ballas


There are a number of William Hill customers who will be cheering the announcement that Shirley Ballas got the job as she finished as the Even money favourite to get the job.The latest odds from William Hill suggest that Anton du Beke might just throw his toys out of the pram & refuse to dance in the next series of Strictly and it is 11/2 that he is not a professional dancer in 2017.


Meanwhile it is 10/1 that any of the current Judges resign and the hopes of a return of Kristina Rihanoff have taken a hit and it is 8/1 that she returns this year.


“We all thought Anton had been promised the job some years ago and there is every chance that he might just call it quits after this very public of snubs,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.


Kristina Rihanoff is 8/1 to appear as a professional dancer in the 2017 series.


Anton du Beke is 1/10 to appear as a professional dancer in the 2017 series
