Strictly Come Dancing is a bit of Saturday night entertainment for most families, but it’s also a serious betting event and our 16/1 tip Joe McFadden waltzed away with the title on Saturday night, making amends for our near miss with 9/1 Danny Mac in 2016. McFadden and his professional dance partner Katya Jones held off the challenges of Gemma Atkinson, Alexandra Burke and Debbie McGee to win Saturday’s final.
Back when the series started in September, former JLS singer Aston Merrygold was 3/1 favourite, but we noted Ore Oduba’s ‘journey’ to victory last year and advised looking for a contestant who could follow a similar path. We wrote: “It’s worth studying the field for someone who fits a similar profile. Eastenders actor Davood Ghadami, at 10/1, is one option, but Holby City’s Joe McFadden is our pick at 16/1.”
