But which celeb contestant could go on to win the coveted Glitterball trophy? Here’s the latest odds, according to William Hill.
Strictly Come Dancing 2023 - who could win series?
Bobby Brazier is the early favourite to win this year’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing, according to the latest odds. The Eastender actor was 7/2 to win the Glitterball Trophy when the market first opened last month but has been backed into 11/4 ahead of Saturday’s launch show.
The launch show comes just days after Brazier won the NTA for Rising Star for his role as Freddie Slater in the BBC soap. The actor, who is the son of Jeff Brazier and the late Jade Goody took on the role of Freddie in September 2022, a character who was last seen on the show in 2006.
The other Strictly pre-series favourites include Irish presenter Angela Scanlon (4/1), with Leyton Williams (9/2), Nigel Harman (6/1) and Adam Thomas (8/1) also tipped to perform strongly.
William Hill’s Lee Phelps, said:“It seems like only yesterday Hamza Yassin wowed the British public to scoop the Glitterball Trophy last December, but Strictly makes its comeback to our TV screens this Saturday for three months of ballroom battles.
“It remains early days, but Eastenders actor Bobby Brazier seems to be the most fancied selection from the new crop of contestants, opening in the market at 7/2 but now trading at 11/4 to win series 21 of the beloved BBC show. “Other notable contenders include Irish presenter Angela Scanlon at 4/1, with Leyton Williams (9/2), Nigel Harman (6/1) and Adam Thomas (8/1) also amongst the early frontrunners.”
