Editor of easyodds.com Simon Hopper said: “Some people may have been surprised to find out that Perri Kiely had overtaken heroic Paralympian Richard Whitehead in the betting – but our Reality TV tipster called it a few weeks ago. Perri’s odds have shortened from 6/4 to 1/2 and it looks like he will win come Saturday night. We have certainly seen lots of punters take their chances on him.”
The producers were keen to remind us of the dangers of competing on the show for the celebrity contestants and it proved true last Saturday night. Austin Healy was widely fancied to reach the final on last weekend's show, but an injury sustained in practice meant he had to forfeit his spot. Richard Whitehead and Dan Osborne were the two victors, meaning the unfortunate Austin Healy left the show - along with the plucky Anna Williamson.
Which means that we now know our four finalists! The all-male final is topped by Diversity dancer Perri Kiely who is now as short as 1/2. His excellent diving ability has set him apart from the start and he is the bookies favourite to win the show. Can he keep up his excellence or will he falter after attempting one of his technically difficult dives?
Paralympian Richard Whitehead was favourite to win the show after his initial qualification, but the fact he is contained to a few styles of dive means that Perri can show more versatility. Perhaps this is why he has fallen behind the afro haired dancer in the betting? He is a current best price of 5/2. He has every chance of winning the show and with better odds available could well prove profitable for punters. Can Perri hold his nerve?
The bookies believe this final will be a two horse race - with hulking Dan Osborne and Keith Duffy lacking the technical ability shown by the other two competitors. They are available at a matched best price of 25/1 – meaning an upset win will be a very bad day for the bookies!
