Phillip Schofield now 2/1 for Strictly spot

Our traders have slashed the odds on Phillip Schofield appearing on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing for the second time this week.

The ITV presenter was a 7/2 shot on Monday and is now just 2/1 to appear on the next series of the hit BBC show, after getting former dancer AJ Pritchard’s seal of approval.

The 58-year-old is among a list of stars rumoured to be competing for the Glitterball trophy in a series which is odds-on to welcome the first ever same-sex couple to the dancefloor. Could Schofe be the first celebrity to be partnered with a male dancer?

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Schofield’s looking increasingly likely to take part in Strictly’s first ever same-sex couple and as speculation mounts, the odds continue to fall.”
