Ellie Leach is now the 1/5 favourite to win this year's Strictly Come Dancing
Leach has been the favourite for weeks now with her odds tumbling more and more every week and the 1/5 that she now sits at is the shortest price she has been yet.
The actress scored a total of 36 points on Saturday night for her Quickstep to 'Belle' from Beauty and the Beast which saw her finish 2nd on the judges leaderboard.
Despite finishing behind Layton Williams from the judges scoring, William Hill have shortened her odds further to win the show with the latest odds now giving her an 83% chance of winning.

What the expert says...
Ellie Leach's strong performance yet again on Saturday evening saw her odds shorten even further from 1/4 to 1/5 to win this year's Strictly Come Dancing now.
Layton Williams remains 12/1 despite scoring the first 40 of the season on Saturday night
Actor and West End star Layton Williams scored the first 40 of this year's Strictly Come Dancing season after a stunning Paso Doble left the judges purring over the performance.
Musicals week could well have been the perfect one for Layton who has starred in numerous musicals himself and his dance to 'Backstage Romance' from Moulin Rouge! was perfect.
Although he scored a total of 40/40, his odds haven't shortened over the weekend to win with Annabel Croft remaining above Williams in the overall betting market to win.

Nigel Harman's injury meant there were no eliminations at the weekend
Nigel Harman pulled out of Saturday's Strictly Come Dancing dramatically during the day of the show after a rib injury saw him unable to perform.
This injury meant that the actor had to leave the competition after being a strong act and fans of him will have been gutted about that.
Harman's injury meant that there were no eliminations on the show at the weekend with the points scored by the judges rolling over to this weekend's show for double points.
