Abbey Clancy is your favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2013

The model and TV presenter has beaten Natalie Gumede, Susanna Reid and Sophie Ellis-Bextor to the top spot in our poll

Abbey Clancy is the celebrity dancer you’d most like to see get her hands on the Strictly glitter ball.


As we approach the end of Strictly Come Dancing’s 11th series – and prepare to watch the first ever all-female final – we asked readers who should win the coveted top spot. And 37.52% of you voted for Abbey Clancy, who came joint top of the leader board in last week’s semi-final.

Abbey, who is well known for modelling and TV work, as well as being married to footballer Peter Crouch, has consistently been up at the top end of the leader board – and was the first celebrity contestant to score full marks this year.

Natalie Gumede, who joined Abbey at the top of the leader board last week, came in second in our poll with 21.9% of the votes. The Coronation Street actress has impressed the judges from the beginning of the competition, but found herself in the bottom two last week opposite Patrick Robinson.

When it comes to who you think should be in third place, it’s a close call, with BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid getting 20.52% of the votes and Sophie Ellis-Bextor coming in with 20.06%

It’s all to play for in the final as each celebrity has three dances to perform – tune in tonight to find out if you were right. If it doesn’t work out for Abbey on the night, at least she’ll know she won the poll, eh?

Strictly Come Dancing is on at 6:30pm on BBC1
