Strictly Come Dancing: No Fix – Arise Sir Len!
“We have had a couple of calls asking if we think the result was fixed by the BBC and the answer in a word is ‘No’. A BBC star has won a BBC show but Ore was the best dancer on the night, a worthy winner and on top of everything he was a great result for the bookies,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Len Goodman is 16/1 to be given a knighthood in the New Year and 3/1 to receive some form of honour after his final appearance on Strictly. Anton is the 4/6 odds on favourite to replace the leaving Len, but don’t rule out Brendan who is now 5/1 from 20/1 to become a judge.
Hills have also opened a book on who will take part in next year’s show – Jess Ennis-Hill & Jenson Button the two favourites at 2/1, with Major Tim Peake offered at 4/1.
Len 16/1 knighthood and 3/1 for any Honour
