Strictly Come Dancing 2014

Strictly speaking we’re X-Factor fans here at Oggs HQ but we can’t resist the occasional flick of the TV remote over to the excellent Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1. There may not be Brucie any more but there can still be a bang for your buck if you follow our tips on the remaining contenders.
Judy Murray spent the last few weeks managing to embarrass herself only slightly less than her son Andy did against Roger Federer last week and whilst a lovely lady she had about as much rhythm as a drunken sailor and had no place in the latter weeks of this programme.
Eight are left in but rule out Sunetra Sarker and Steve Backshall, it’ll be a huge shock if they survive much longer. Sunetra’s samba was poor last time out and her mistakes were obvious even to our untrained eyes. It’s no surprise she’s the 4/5 favourite to go with bet365 this week – it’s not the worst bet you’ll ever see.
Simon Webbe was on amazing form last weekend and his price of 14/1 with Paddy Power is possibly a touch big. They’ll give you 6/1 on an outside top three finish and we can’t resist a small bet.
Caroline Fleck was s short as 7/2 a month ago but inconsistency and a shock bottom two position the week before last see her odds around 8/1 at the moment and she shouldn’t threaten, likewise Mark Wright whilst being clean and precise hasn’t wowed the crowds – he smiles nicely but well, there’s no X-Factor.
So who are we backing? Frankie Bridge, Pixie Lott or Jake Wood? We’re torn between Frankie and Pixie, but have to go with the latter due to the way she has come out on fire week after week. She’s shown power, aggression and agility and in Trent Whiddon she has formed a wonderful partnership. Back Pixie at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.
