Most of the leading online bookmakers installed Tom Fletcher as the early SCD favourite, the guitarist-singer from the band McFly looks to emulate his wife in winning a TV show, she was the I'm A Celebrity Queen Of The Jungle. 

The best price for Rose Ayling-Ellis is around 7/2 but she is also on offer at 5/1, come the early weeks of the show she could be the clear favourite. 

CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson is another contestant who may be impressing in rehearsals, his SCD odds have shortened to 6/1.

We know comedian Robert Webb can dance after the Comic Relief Flashdance skit, he is at odds of 8/1 from an early 12/1.

Presenter AJ Odudu is heading to the Ballroom, the bookies have cut her odds before the show has even started.

BBC Breakfast news presenter Dan Walker had been installed towards the head of the betting, but he has drifted out to a generous double-figure price.

Matilda (Tilly) Ramsey becomes the youngest Strictly Come Dancing contestant at just 19, she can be backed at around 14/1. 

Actress Katie McGlynn is 12/1, the talented performer will now be on our screens every Saturday night.  

Tokyo double Olympic Gold Medallist Swimmer Adam Peaty is also 12/1, he was the first sportsman added to the Strictly roster.

20/1 are also the early odds for actor Greg Wise, he is best known for the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility.

Ugo Monye was the final name for Strictly, the former Rugby Union player is now at a bigger price than his early odds.

The Bake-Off winner John Whaite can be supported at odds of 12/1.

Strutting her stuff in front of the judges will be the Loose Woman panelist Judi Love, bookies have her quoted at 20/1.

The Dragons Den entrepreneur Sara Davies will look to impress the judges at 20/1. 

The Outsider at 25/1 is ex-East Ender Nina Wadiashe says the judges will need to be blindfolded for her to win, but she could emulate other Walford winners Jill Halfpenny (2004) and Kara Tointon (2010).

Betting On Strictly Come Dancing

I do bet on Strictly because if you get on early enough there is some big value to be had. The winner is usually a big price after the first couple of rounds.

Social Media Popularity

Without a step being danced could the reason Tom Fletcher is SCD favourite be due to his huge following on Twitter and Instagram?

Celebrities are no different, like all of us they want to be popular on these sites.
