Strictly Come Dancing Pro Backs One Contestant To Win The Show

Strictly Come Dancing regular Brendan Cole has backed Mark Wright to win the show.

The professional dancer thinks Mark, who became famous thanks to reality TV show TOWIE, has what it takes to be crowned the 2014 champion.

Speaking to Now Daily, Brendan said: "I quite like the underdogs and you can see the excitement in Mark's face when he gets through, it's absolute disbelief, and I like that about the guy. He's a trier".

"I would actually like to see an all-male final. Last year it was an all-girl final so why not give the boys a chance?"

In Brendan's opinion, Caroline Flack is the one contestant who could pose a threat to Mark.

"I think potentially Mark or Caroline will win, I can't see that much of a difference between people at this stage of the competition and every single person has put in an extraordinary amount of time and effort to get there," said Brendan.

"Caroline has always had a bit of a bad rap from the judging panel and in my mind she didn't get the marks she deserves sometimes so I think it would be nice for her or Mark to go on and lift the trophy".

Casualty actress Sunetra Sarker was Brendan's dance partner and they were voted off in week ten of the show.


This weekend, Mark, Simon Webbe, Frankie Sandford and Caroline Flack will compete in the final of the dancing competition.
