‘Strictly Come Dancing’ kicks off on Friday 26 September and - even though we’re yet to see the celebs strutting their stuff on the dancefloor - the favourites to win have been revealed.

It probably won’t surprise fans to learn that Pixie Lott is the favourite to scoop the Glitterball Trophy, along with former rugby star Thom Evans.

Pixie and Thom are both 7/2 to win the competition, while The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge isn’t far behind, with bookies offering odds of 4/1 on her winning.

Obviously, not everybody can come out on top, and Gregg Wallace and Tim Wonnacott probably won’t be too pleased to see that they’re both 100/1 to win this series.

Interestingly, Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills, who appeared on the cover of this week’s Radio Times following a fan vote, is 66/1 to win, along with actress Jennifer Gibney.

Despite speculation over whether the Scottish Referendum result (or her son Andy's tweet about it, to be precise) could affect her chances - yes, really - Judy Murray finds herself in the middle of the pack, at 25/1.

‘Strictly’ goes up against ‘The X Factor’ three times this weekend, as both the BBC and ITV have made the decision to broadcast one show each evening.
