SCD: Alesha Replaced By A Pro..No Return For Arlene?
Bookmakers William Hill think that the BBC will decide to replace Alesha Dixon with a pro rather than a celebrity for the next series of Strictly Come Dancing and currently make Karen Hardy their 4/6 favourite. Other names in the mix include a return for Arlene at 33/1 and Nancy Dell'olio who is also a 33/1.
"Alesha took time to settle in and we think the BBC will go with a professional judge this time round. Arlene fans will be sad to see that she is a 33/1 outsider to return to the programme," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
