Bookies convinced Mike is set to dance his last dance

February 6th, 2020 Home, Media & Journalism, Uncategorized

Bookmakers are convinced that BBC sports presenter Mike Bushell is heading home this weekend.

But it was the same story last week when Mike survived Halloween week in controversial fashion as he beat former Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley.

Mike’s odds on leaving are now 1/2 which is a probability of 66% – but it remains to be seen if he can defy the odds again.

Kelvin Fletcher continues to dominate the market when it comes to winning, as he has been firm favourite since the opening show and he remains odds-on.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “It was a real fright night for Catherine last week as Mike somewhat controversially got the nod from head judge Shirley Ballas but can he avoid getting the boot again? The Bookmakers don’t think so but then again we all thought that last week.

“In terms of winning, and Kelvin is dominating like we have never seen before, normally we have a few celebrities pushing for favouritism but Kelvin is staying strong although it looks like Emma Barton could close the gap in the not too distant future.”
