According to the latest odds from our traders, it’s a two-way battle for glory in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Holby City star Joe McFadden is the 5/4 favourite to win the Glitterball Trophy. However, he’s likely to face stiff competition from 7/4 shot Debbie McGee as we head into the final two weeks.

X-Factor ace Alexandra Burke has been the most backed celeb still standing. However, interest in the 29-year-old has waned in recent weeks and her odds have subsequently drifted from 2/1 to 8/1 for glory.

Gemma Atkinson is also 8/1 to win this year’s competition, with Mollie King the rank outsider at 12s.

The Saturdays’ singer tops the pile for the next elimination, with 11/10 for Mollie to be sent packing next. She’s followed by soap star Gemma at 7/4.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Punters were quick to back Alex earlier on in the series but the emergence of Joe really has thrown a spanner in the works and as far as we’re concerned, this year’s trophy is only going one of two ways.”
