Ashley Roberts firm early favourite for Strictly title

August 19th, 2018 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Television

Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Robert is the firm favourite to take the Strictly Come Dancing this year.

With half the field confirmed so far, the American singer, model turned TV presenter is by some distance the market leader with the Bookmakers.

Roberts is now around 3/1 across the board to take the Glitter Ball Trophy later this year.

“Being a former professional dancer, it is little surprise that Ashley Roberts is the early favourite,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“However, the odds at this point mean little – although you can get a great price on some – we don’t often see the winner in Strictly being the favourite.

“You have to remember the Judges don’t decide, it is a public vote and at the end of the day, it is a popularity contest as much as a dance competition.”

Selected Strictly Come Dancing odds:

Ashley Roberts – 3/1
Vick Hope – 7/1
Faye Tozer – 7/1
Joe Sugg – 8/1
Danny John-Jules – 10/1
Stacey Dooley – 12/1
Katie Piper – 12/1
Kate Silverton – 14/1
Ranj Singh – 14/1
Seann Walsh – 14/1
Graeme Swann – 14/1
