Anton Du Beke odds-on to replace Len Goodman

Anton Du Beke is odds-on at 4-6 with leading bookmaker Coral to replace Len Goodman as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing next year after the head judge waved farewell yesterday on the Christmas special following 12 years on the show. Former Strictly dancer Karen Hardy is second best in the latest betting at 6-4 with the firm, Helen Richey can be backed at 4-1 and Gary Edwards is 6-1.

“The betting suggests Anton Du Beke is the front runner to replace Len on the judging panel next year but there is very little between the ballroom dancer and former Strictly star Karen Hardy for the role,” said Coral’s John Hill.

**Who will replace Len Goodman as a judge on Strictly in 2017?
4-6 Anton Du Beke, 6-4 Karen Hardy, 4-1 Helen Richey, 6-1 Gary Edwards, 7-1 Arlene Phillips, Ian Wate, Robin Windsor, 8-1 Bar
