We’re only one day away from seeing the fresh celebrities take to the dance floor on Saturday night, however that hasn’t stopped a few taking early guesses as to who will be crowned winner of Strictly Come Dancing 2021.
According to Bookmakers.tv, CCBC presenter Rhys Stephenson is more likely to be this year’s champion based on analysis of past winners.
A spokesperson for the site said: ‘With 19 years of Strictly Come Dancing to look back on, we analysed the previous winners to look at characteristics seeing who is most likely to win this year’s show according to our research.’
‘History tells us that the two most likely professions to take the crown or tiara are presenters and actors. Rhys Stephenson is such a similar fit to the average strictly winner profile, and at third favourite, he could be well worth a punt.’
Rhys recently declared that he feels confident ahead of Saturday night’s live show and even revealed he has a dance background.
Speaking to The Express, he said: ‘I back myself, I’ve got a good rhythm.
‘I’ve always enjoyed dancing I’ve always had fun with it and in school I did street dancing.’
He added: ‘Learning a routine is not new to me but I haven’t done that kind of stuff in a little while.’
The 27-year-old presenter, who is partnered with Nancy Xu, will be performing the viennese waltz to a Boys II Men classic on Saturday night, so we’ll see how accurate those predictions are… no pressure.
EastEnders actress Rose Ayling- Ellis, 26, who is partnered with Strictly pro dancer Giovanni Pernice, is also being tipped to take home the glitterball trophy.
Strictly Come Dancing returns next Saturday at 7pm on BBC One.
