Strictly Come Dancing odds and tips – Caroline Flack 3/4 to win after Jake exit

Pixie Lott and Jake Wood have both made surprise Strictly exits in the past fortnight, with four couples left to battle it out for the famous glitter ball.

Caroline Flack wasn't among the original favourites to claim the spoils, although the TV presenter is now odds-on to fend off Frankie, Simon and Mark to claim victory with her dance partner Pasha.

Caroline was head and shoulders above the competition last weekend when registering a perfect 40 along with another high score of 35, with this tally keeping her safe and leading to Jake tussling it out with Mark for a spot in the final.

The EastEnders actor had been backed by several to win the overall competition, although a couple of sub-par performances saw him bite the bullet, keeping alive the hopes of Mark Wright, someone who claimed he couldn't dance at the beginning of the show.

The TOWIE star is still the rank outsider at 14/1 to claim victory although the British love an underdog and a combined score of 66 last week was only two behind Simon Webbe.

Webbe was in trouble as early as week three when he was forced into a dance-off and again in week five, although the Blue singer has since been out of danger and is a 10/1 chance with the bookies to win the show.

Frankie Bridge has been among the favourites from the very beginning, with The Saturday's singer having performed to a high level with her dance partner Kevin.

Frankie is expected to go head-to-head with Caroline for the overall prize, with the former a 2/1 shot to claim the spoils.
