There are just a few days before 15 new celebrities make their dance-floor debut for the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 season and Saturday nights won’t be the same for the rest of the year – at least in some households. It all starts on Friday 23rd on BBC1.
It’s not just a big TV event, but a sizeable betting event too and the bookmakers’ favourite to win this year is Will Young, a 4/1 chance with Ladbrokes and Betfred. Indeed, musicians have fared best of all occupations over the previous 13 series, so keep an eye on Louise Redknapp, available at best odds of 15/2 with Sky Bet.
Actors frequently do well also, and Hollyoaks regular Danny Mac looks like the one to watch from that category. The 28-year-old is the right age profile for a winner, we’re reliably informed that his looks and physique will ensure that he will attract a hefty female vote and he also has some dance training in his acting background.
He can be backed at a stand-out price of 10/1 with Betfred, while BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty (14/1 Bet365), a keen golfer, and Olympic gold medal winning long jumper Greg Rutherford (20/1 Sky Bet) are other interesting choices.
