Just five celebrities remain – who will make it through to the final?

It’s fair to say that when we’ve penned these little snippets in anticipation of  cracking evenings of Strictly fun, Bill Bailey has invariably come in for lots of admiring comment. He’s a seasoned, accomplished all-rounder, and that entertainment versatility now clearly embraces dancing to a very decent level indeed.

Well – it seems that the Great British Public are of similar mind, for Bill is currently our 5/4 favourite to lift the Glitter Ball in next Saturday’s final. For now, we’ve a potentially thrilling semi tonight, and full betting not only on the outright, but next elimination, gender of the winner, top male, and top female.

Two dances each – stamina to the fore then. Maisie Smith is a 10/1 shot for ultimate glory – a slightly comical state of affairs given her obvious ability. She seems not to have ‘clicked’ with said Great British Public though, and without their support it’s an uphill climb in heavy boots and then some.

Second-fav with Betfred is HRVY, at 6/4. Another who’s come from nothing to plenty in talent-terms, and a crowd-favourite like Bill, who is incidentally some 34 years his senior.

Jamie Laing is our red-hot fav at 4/11 to be given his marching orders tonight – and if that or any of the other markets mentioned above take your fancy, they are all right HERE

Enjoy!

Whenever you bet, Betfred
