Kara Tointon has replaced Karen Hardy as the bookies’ favourite to replace Alesha Dixon on the Strictly Come Dancing judging panel.
Kara won the 2010 series of the BBC1 hit in the highest-rated season finale in the show’s history, whilst Karen used to work with the celebrities as a professional dancer before commentating on the show for special Red Button coverage.
Former EastEnders star Kara is now odds-on favourite on 10/11, whilst Karen slips to 6/4.
Behind them is Chelsee Healey on 5/1 and Arlene Phillips on 6/1, with Anton Du Beke the most likely male on 16/1 odds. He shares those odds with former champion Jill Halfpenny and pro Erin Boag.
Ola Jordan and Mark Ramprakash are long shots on 25/1, whilst Russell Grant is 40/1 and Anne Widdecombe is 100/1.
Who do you think would make a good replacement for Alesha?
