John Whaite 4.216/5 is not far behind AJ in the betting after dancing a slick cha cha that was another hit with the judges.

AJ Odudu is the favourite on the Betfair Exchange to win Strictly Come Dancing 2021 after the television presenter wowed the judges on Saturday and shook up the betting.

Odudu is 3.9 following a performance that saw her stay top of the leaderboard.

She and partner Kai Widdrington blew judges away with a sophisticated foxtrot to Amy Winehouse's song, "Tears Dry on Their Own."

John Whaite 4.216/5 is not far behind in the betting after dancing a slick cha cha that was another hit with the judges.


Rose Ayling-Ellis danced the salsa on Saturday and the EastEnders actress comes next at 4.77/2

Tilly Ramsay top scored but she's 55.054/1 on the Exchange - a sign that bettors don't think she'll be able to sustain her level of performance.

The weekend also saw the first exit of the series as Nina Wadia left the show.

The actress lost Sunday's dance off against Katie McGlynn who is 80.079/1 on the Exchange to lift the glitterball this autumn.
