'Strictly Come Dancing' host Tess Daly expects Susanna Reid to win 'Strictly Come Dancing', and it is said she has been receiving a high share of the public votes
Susanna Reid is the favourite to win 'Strictly Come Dancing' tonight (21.12.13).
The TV presenter is said to have pulled in more than double the votes of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, her nearest rival, during the semi final and show host Tess Daly thinks she could win based on her popularity.
She told The Sun newspaper: "Susanna is the every-woman of the competition and the one all the mums at home can relate to.
"She may not be the strongest dancer but you can't help but love her personality."
In the show's quarter finals, Susanna reportedly pulled in 38 per cent of the votes, way ahead of the 15 per cent gained by Sophie and their rival Abbey Clancy.
With the way the votes are looking, it seems 'Coronation Street' actress Natalie Gumede could be finishing in fourth place.
Bookmakers Ladbrokes are currently ranting Susanna as the 11/1 favourite, Sophie at 7/2 and Natalie at 10/1.
However, Abbey - currently at odds of 9/4 - has had had 72 per cent of customers putting their money on her, and could be an "upset" in the final.
A spokesman said: "With 72 per cent of bets place on Abbey this week, the money suggests an upset is on the cards."
