Kirsty Gallacher a worthy favourite in next to go market because of difficult dance and shyness, while Peter Andre lengthened to fab 4/1 for outright win.
Sky Sports news presenter Kirsty Gallacher will have to overcome her shyness, and has no “Lady and the Tramp” costume to hide behind this time, when dancing the Pasodoble with professional partner Brendan Cole in week four of Strictly Come Dancing’s 13th series.
This Latin dance is all about the leading man and his mastery of bull-fighting, and Kirsty cannot afford to be a shrinking violent when seeming to be tamed by Brendan. With this routine notoriously difficult for female celebrities, bet365’s top odds of 3/1 for Gallacher to be next to go are well worth taking.
Unlike fellow Pasodoble performer Carol Kirkwood, a best-price of 7/2 with Betfred in the next elimination market, Kirsty is simply not as well known to the public as the popular BBC Breakfast weather presenter. This level of mainstream exposure should certainly be a factor.
Loose Women’s Jamelia tackles the quirky, high-energy Charleston, meanwhile, and, although she put together a much-improved performance with the salsa last week, her presence in the dance-off two weeks ago is a clear indicator of her lack of appeal with the public. Former popstar Jamelia could thus also be worth a wager to be axed next at top odds of 11/2 with Coral.
The Wanted member Jay McGuiness saw his price to receive the Glitter Ball Trophy slashed into 11/10 by Ladbrokes last week, after some fancy footwork during his jive that impressed the judges.
As a result, early weeks favourite Peter Andre’s odds have drifted to a fabulous top-price of 4/1 with BetVictor. Strictly is just as much about public popularity as what Craig, Darcy, Len and Bruno think, so given the reality TV and former “Mysterious Girl” pop sensation’s social media following, he is going to command a large portion of the public vote.
BETTING TIP: Kirsty Gallacher is next celebrity eliminated @ 3/1 with bet365.
