MORE than £1 MILLION is set to be bet on the outcome of tonight's Strictly Come Dancing final.
Bookmakers William Hill are predicting that record amounts will be wagered on the result by the time the BBC1 show starts at 6.40pm.
The bookies do not rate WGC model Lisa Snowdon's chances, though.
The 37-year-old is rank outsider with both William Hill and Ladbrokes to win the contest, with ex-S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens and Holby City actor Tom Chambers favourites.
Not that this should worry Lisa, though.
For weeks she has been favourite to be eliminated, only to upset the form guide and remain on the show.
And there's everything to play for if you study the statistics, too.
Of the three remaining celebrities, Rachel has rated the highest with the judges, with an average score of 35.3.
Lisa and Tom are neck and neck with an average score of 34.1.
