Bookies give odds for who the winning professional will be on this year's series of Strictly
Betting remains available for who the winning professional on this year's Strictly Come Dancing will be with a whole host of potential winners on the show with more than 17 professionals in the market.
UK Betting Sites put former winner Giovanni Pernice as the outright favourite in the winning professional market just 2 years on from an emotional win with Rose Ayling-Ellis.
Last year's series saw him in an all-male partnership with Richie Anderson but that couple were eliminated in week 3 and Pernice will be hoping to have a better performance this year if he is picked as a professional.
Betway have him as the 8/1 favourite in the betting market to win the show just ahead of popular dancer Johannes Radebe who is second favourite at 9/1.
