Michelle Visage’s Strictly Come Dancing odds are increasing

Kelvin Fletcher and Karim Zeroual remain firm favourites for the Strictly Come Dancing title, but there has been a huge surge of interest in Michelle Visage.

The American TV personality, who is a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race which has just come to the UK, was seen as an outsider when the line-ups were first confirmed and she was as long as 50/1 – now she is into 15/2.

Visage is a huge personality and a social media following into the millions, but she has been performing brilliantly on the dance floor with her partner Giovanni Pernice.

In the opening two weeks, Visage is one of the top-scorers. They came third with 30 points in Week One after dancing the Cha-Cha-Cha and then in the second week they topped the scores with 32 after picking up four 8s for an outstanding Viennese Waltz.

In terms of those who have drifted, Alex Scott – who was previously favourite – is now as long as 10/1, whilst Catherine Tyldesley is now 22/1 having also been one of the favourites in the opening weeks.

The rank outsider is former footballer David James at 150/1, who is odds-on favourite to be next out of the competition.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “Kelvin Fletcher remains hugely popular and is still firm favourite alongside Karim Zeroual, but the big news this week is on Michelle Visage.

“Visage has gone from being a 50/1 outsider to being third favourite and the most popular woman in the betting market and all within two weeks – remarkable and shows just how popular she has become.

“As for who is about to dance their last tango and that looks to be David James, he is odds-on at 8/11 to be going this weekend.”
