Bookies Call 'Strictly Come Dancing' Closest Final Ever, With Susannah Reid A VERY Narrow Favourite To Win..

Bookies have taken a record-breaking booty on this year's 'Strictly Come Final' result, with William Hill recording a six figure sum on Saturday evening's outcome.

It's also being touted as the closest final in the history of the programme, with very slim odds dividing the four final couples.

There's hardly a sequin between the four finalists of this year's Strictly Come Dancing...

Updated odds from William Hill as of Saturday morning are...

The current favourite is BBC Breakfast presenter Susannah Reid, dancing with Kevin Clifton, whose odds are, in fact, Evens.

Abbey Clancy, dancing with Aljaz Skorjanec, and Sophie Ellis-Bextor on the arm of Brendan Coyle, are both running a close second favourite, though, at odds of 9/4 and 3/1 respectively.

Only former soap star Natalie Gumede, a big favourite when the series began, is now the outsider with odds of 9/1. She's dancing with Artem Chigvintsev.

However, in recognition of the high quality of dancing this year, William Hill is offering Evens on all four contestants scoring a maximum of 40 points during the final.

“We are expecting a record final night as the most exciting Strictly comes to its conclusion.” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Susanna is the favourite but this competition is wide open.”
