Will Mellor is 8/1 to win this year's Strictly Come Dancing

Will Mellor is the first contestant to be announced for this year's Strictly Come Dancing and bookmakers make him 8/1 to win the show.

This year's celebrity dancers are currently in the process of being announced and we should know the full lineup in the next week.

Kym Marsh has also been announced as one of this year's celebs and she is 12/1 with Ladbrokes to win this year's series.

The first show of the series is expected in mid-September, with the recording date for the opener set for the 7th September.

Gino D'Acampo 11/8 to appear on this year's series

Celebrity Chef Gino D'Acampo was the joint favourite with UK betting sites to feature as a contestant on this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing.

D'Acampo has previously appeared on Reality TV in the UK with him being crowned King of the Jungle in the 2009 series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

To Appear on Strictly Come Dancing 2022 (as of July 12th) Odds Probability
Gordon Ramsay 11/8 42.1%
Gino D'Acampo
11/8 42.1%
Scarlett Moffatt 6/4 40.0%
Helen Skelton 7/4 36.4%
Rosie Jones 2/1 33.3%
Dawn French 5/2 28.6%


Former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt is the third favourite in the betting market to be on this year's Strictly. 

Reports date back as far as 3 years ago of Moffatt being touted to appear on the show and this may be the year it finally happens.

Gino D'Acampo is the 11/8 joint favourite to appear on Strictly Come Dancing this year, with rumours of fellow celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay appearing too!

Specials include who the winning professional of this season will be

A new series of Strictly Come Dancing usually means a whole host of betting props follow and we'll start to see them over the next few weeks when contestants are announced.

Who will be the winning professional is one of those special markets that is already up on bettings sites with a whole host of professionals listed.

Last year's winner Giovanni Pernice is the 7/1 favourite to be the winning professional in this year's series. 

Strictly Come Dancing 2022 - Winning Professional Odds Probability
Giovanni Pernice 7/1 12.5%
Nancy Xu 8/1 11.1%
Amy Dowden 9/1 10.0%
Graziano Di Prima 10/1 9.1%
Gorka Marquez 11/1 8.3%
Nikita Kuzmin 11/1 8.3%


There are more odds available for this specific market with Betway, with 10 more professional dancers priced up to win the show.

Only Oti Mabuse has won the series back to back in consecutive years, which could show that it's a tough task for the favourite Pernice.

Giovanni Pernice is the 7/1 favourite to win the show in consecutive years, a feat which has only been done once by dancer Oti Mabuse. Mabuse won with Kelvin Fletcher and Bill Bailey in 2019 & 2020.
