Claudia is the early favourite with punters hoping she will follow in the footsteps of fellow gymnast Louis Smith who won the series in 2012. Will Young who was the early favourite until Claudia was announced isn’t far behind her with the punters. At the other end of the book Lesley Joseph and Ed Balls are the outsiders both on 100-1. At the age of 70 it’s hard to see how Lesley will last more than a few weeks but older contestants have surprised us before so you never know and her popularity may keep her in longer than her 100-1 price would suggest. Ed spectacularly lost his seat last year and is widely expected to lose his place on Strictly sooner rather than later.

The end is here! It’s been quite a ride over the last two weeks when the class of 2016 has been announced. Occasionally armed with wikipedia I’ve been on hand to reveal all the names as the BBC announce them but this is it. The final reveal. Who will be completing the lineup? The Strictly Spoiler is on hand to tell you. The final contestant is as revealed in an ever doubtful spoiler that actually proved to be correct:
Lesley is best known for her role as Dorien Green in Birds of a Feather. Lesley is currently priced at 100-1 with bookmaker Coral.
