Strictly Come Dancing 2017 hasn't even started, but some people already think they know which celeb is going to win!

The full line-up's been confirmed and the celebs have started training; we think it's fair to say the (glitter)ball has officially started rolling for Strictly Come Dancing 2017!

But while most of us are just looking forward to Strictly hitting our screens, some people (i.e. the bookies) are already thinking about who's going to take home the coveted Glitterball trophy.

So, who's hotly tipped to win Strictly 2017... and who's assumed to have two left feet?

Well according to the team at BetStars, JLS singer Aston Merrygold is the firm favourite to win this year's Striclty - which will make him the eighth male celebrity to take home the trophy.

Fellow popstar Mollie King is the next bookies favourite, with Alexandra Burke - who beat Aston and his JLS bandmates to win The X Factor in 2008 - tipped as third most likely to win.

Those are the winners... but what about the other end of the table?

Well according to the bookies, Simon Rimmer, Susan Calman, Ruth Langsford and Chizzy Akudolo are all equally unlikely to take home the Glitterball trophy, with odds of 50/1. Ouch.

Responding to the news that she's already tipped to be a Strictly flop, This Morning and Loose Women presenter Ruth Langsford grumbled: "I’m at the bottom and we haven’t even started yet! It’s a bit unfair. What are they judging me on?”

And her husband, Eamonn, didn't help matters, telling Ruth:“You could get the sympathy vote!” before adding that he'd prefer her not to win anyway. Charming!

Interestingly, if Aston does take the 2017 Strictly crown, he'll be the fourth popstar to win the title, following in the perfectly-timed footsteps of Alesha Dixon, Harry Judd and Jay McGuiness.
