Rose Ayling-Ellis gave the tip to win Strictly, as the odds announced after the first live show


Rose Ayling-Ellis is a clear favorite to win the coveted Strictly Come Dancing trophy after bookies revealed their chances after their debut.

The EastEnders star leads the way for her competitors after she and professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice put on a breathtaking show with her jive to Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off.

Rose, 26, best known as Mick Carter’s daughter Frankie Lewis, wowed the crowd as she and Giovanni showed off their undeniable chemistry.

Rose is now the odds favorite to win the show directly with odds of 11/4.

Rose on his heels is the handsome Olympic swimmer Adam Peaty. He made the ladies drool as he flexed his muscles during his debut.

Adam is now the second favorite to win with a 4/1 along with Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite in his historic same-sex pair.

Right behind this duo are the moderators AJ Odudu on May 1st. and Rhys Stephenson on June 1st.

McFly frontman Tom Fletcher leads the middle class with a not-too-shoddy 16/1, which means he’s an obvious contender for the title.

Actors Nina Wadia, Katie McGlynn and Robert Webb are all still in the running. Their first bet earned them odds of 25/1 for an absolute win.

BBC breakfast host Dan Walker still has a chance to climb the ranks again as he earns 33/1 in the betting stakes after his energetic performance.

Who do bookmakers predict that they won’t do as well?

Meanwhile, rugby hunk Ugo Monye and Holywood star Greg Wise are both at 66/1.
