BBC favourite Strictly Come Dancing is foxtrotting back on our screens this September for its 21st series and the latest celebrity line-up to strut their stuff has been announced.

We’ve a cast of 15 (see above) that will be jiving each Saturday night till Christmas and even though the best UK bookmakers have yet to see their dancing skills. At BettingSites.co.uk, we’ve asked our in-house oddsmaker to price up the winners market and also the 2023 Strictly Come Dancing first celebrity to be eliminated.

Step forward Channel 4 newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy as the bookies favourite to get the boot first.

The 53-year-old has recently gone on record as saying a heart conditions has not helped his Strictly prep and the layers are latching onto this making the journalist the top call at 5/2 to be voted off the show first.

When asked why he agreed to sign up to this year’s Strictly, Guru-Murthy said.

“You only live once. I’m here for the joy and the fun. I love my job. It’s very, very privileged: I go to amazing places and speak to amazing people, but it’s incredibly serious; it’s quite stressful”

“So the idea of being able to have pure intravenous joy, alongside – because I’m going to be doing the news at the same time – is just irresistible.”


Lee Astley, Head of News for BettingSites.co.uk, commented on the odds; “Sitting behind a newsdesk might’ve taken its toll on the Channel 4 presenter, as Bookies are confident Krishnan Guru-Murthy will be the first to go on the BBC 1 dance floor. 

Each year the Strictly line-up is announced there is always one celeb that stands out with two left feet & unfortunately for Krishnan, he doesn’t give the impression that he’s got Saturday Night Fever.”

Comedian Eddie Kadi and Actress Amanda Abbington Are Also Fancied To Not Last Long In The Series

Next best in the Strictly Come Dancing first elimination market are funnyman Eddie Kadi and Sherlock actor Amanda Addington – wonder if she’ll be dancing along to ‘Baker Street’ by Gerry Rafferty?

Eddie Kadi, a Radio 1Xtra DJ as well as a standup comic, might not be known to everyone but the bookies seem to have an inside peek into his progress and make him the joint second-favourite to be eliminated first at 4/1.

Amanda Addington is also priced at 4/1 to go first and ironically she was also the first Strictly class of 2023 contestant to be unveiled.

Her participation has already come into question after the actor, who is also Martin Freeman’s partner, was accused of transphobic comments on her Twitter account, with some of the Strictly faithful even threatening a show boycott.

Bobby Brazier Expected To Last To The ‘Ender’

At the other end of the Strictly Come Dancing 2023 market it’s EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier that is the early bookies favourite to win at 3/1.

Brazier, who is the son of the late Jade Goody and TV presenter Jeff Brazier, has shot to stardom in his own right as appearing as Freddie Slater on the popular BBC soap.

At only 20 years-old the bookies are expecting his young legs to pick up the Cha-Cha-Cha and Charleston quicker than the rest and will be looking to follow-up the 2022 win by Hamza Yassin and also his fellow EastEnders actor Rose Ayling-Ellis, who won the Glitter Ball in 2021.
