Cowell v Cole - let battle commence
William Hill have halved the price of Cheryl Cole taking part in Strictly Come Dancing from 50/1 to 25/1 after a number of bets earlier today.
Sir Steve Redgrave is new to the list of potential contestants at 12/1 with Robbie Savage a 3/1 shot, Alex Jones is odds on at 1/2.
"Getting Cheryl Cole would be a fantastic coup for the BBC and it would be a real opportunity for her to take on Simon in a ratings war!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
