Punters Hoping Vick Can Win Strictly 2018

VICK HOPE is the favourite to dazzle the judges on the dancefloor as the new instalment of Strictly Come Dancing prepares to hit our screens.  The Radio DJ, who once worked as a dancer in an Argentinian nightclub, was partnered with new professional Graziano Di Prima at the launch show and has since enjoyed the majority of support in the run up to the first dances.

Boylesports make her their 11/4 favourite for the Glitterball trophy, despite stiff competition in the market from Ashley Roberts. The former Pussycat Doll is just slightly behind Hope in the betting at 7/2 having taken a significant portion of the early money also, with investigative journalist Stacey Dooley and Red Dwarf star Danny John-Jules the next most popular bets at 7/1.

Former cricketer Graeme Swann enjoyed a spike in support after the launch show when he was paired off with former finalist Obi Mabuse, and he is now 16/1 from 25/1 to bowl over the judges when he takes to the dancefloor for his latest venture.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports explains the opening betting show: “We haven’t even seen a shake of the hip yet but punters have been keen to pounce on the early value and Vick Hope and Ashley Roberts are the real movers and shakers before the off.”

He added: “The first show always sends our traders a bit dizzy because some of the outsiders can leap up the betting, so we’ll see which one of them has better moves than we expected once the cameras start rolling.”
