Widdecombe and Wagner backed at 1000/1 for glory
William Hill have seen a surge of support for the two most unlikely candidates on Saturday reality TV. Anne Widdecombe has been cut from 25/1 to 22/1 to win Strictly Come Dancing and Wagner has been halved from 80/1 to 40/1 to win the X Factor. Should you believe in lucky long shots William Hill offer 1000/1 that Wagner & Widdecombe win their respective shows. A slightly more likely double is for the two Matts to win which is offered at 11/2.
"Both Wager & Anne Widdecombe are becoming cult figures and although still a long shot this could be the greatest double of all time," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
