As Greg Wise and his partner Karen Hauer were booted off Strictly this weekend, bookmakers have shifted their predictions for the series' winner.

Greg and Karen were the bookie's favourite to leave on Sunday after Katie and Gorka were became the second pair to leave the hit BBC show.

John and Johannes were the favourites to win but after this weekend's American Smooth scored them 29 points, which is a 10 point from the week before, their odds have dropped significantly.

Today, Betfair has pegged Eastenders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis as a serious contender for the glitterball trophy.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: "She may not have topped the leaderboard this week, but Eastenders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis has firmly captured the hearts of the Strictly fandom, who are backing her to lift the glitterball trophy.

Rose and Giovanni's 'Raspberry Beret' Cha Cha proved popular with the judges and the dancing duo appear to be going from strength to strength.

Her Cha Cha scored 27 points on Saturday as well as 11/10 odds this week.

Who will win Strictly 2021?

Despite Dragon Sara Davies topping the leaderboard with her tango on Saturday with 36 points, Sara and Aljaž are not the favourites to win the series. 

The pair remain unlikely winners with just a 25/1 shot, according to Betfair.

John and Johannes, who were last week's favourites, have dropped back to 3/1 odds despite being 17/10 after their Pirate Paso Doble in week three.

After Ugo and Oti had to pull out from last week's competition due to a flare up of Ugo's old back injury, the pair have dropped to 80/1 odds of winning. 

While Judi and Graziano have 66/1 odds of picking up the glitterball trophy after the couple found themselves in the dance off for the second week running.
