What is Strictly Come Dancing Betting

You may not be aware but the best betting sites embrace the series and offer a range of odds on this ever-popular BBC show. 

As the celebrities are announced the bookmakers start rating their chances based on any snippet of information they can glean. 

As an example last year Tom Fletcher lead singer of the band McFly was the early favourite before he had put a leg on the Elstree dancefloor. (He with his partner Amy Dowden were eliminated by the judges in musicals week.)

Last Year - Strictly Come Dancing Elimination Betting

Rose Ayling Ellis was in pole position and duly won SCD 2021.

Nigel Skinner - OLBG Betting Expert

Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu were in the dance-off with John and Johannes, all 4 judges vote and save the male couple. 

Dan Walker was rightly voted off the SCD dance floor, as most could see he was the weakest dancer, his huge social media following could not save him which begs the question about the influence Twitter, Facebook etc have on these TV competitions. 

Tom Fletcher despite a huge social media following was in the dance-off and lost out to Rhys when the judges voted. 

Sara Davies is out of Strictly Come Dancing after losing in the dance-off to Tilly Ramsey.

Olympian Adam Peaty was the 6th celebrity leaving the dance floor, his tearful reaction to his elimination showed how much SCD meant to him.

After returning from an enforced break due to Covid 19 Judi Love became the 5th celebrity to be eliminated.  

Greg Wise and Ugo Monye were the next celebrities who were given more time to spend with their families.

The second celebrity dancing no more is Katie McGlynn who as Cruella De Ville who did not wow the judges, in the dance-off she went up against Judi Love, the comedian, and loose woman did just enough and was saved by head judge Shirley.  

Last year the first celebrity eliminated was Jacqui Smith the former politician, Nina Wadia was this year's first eliminated.
