OUTEN ABOUT 11-4; Favourite Denise set to outclass Jerry on Strictly dancefloor.

Byline: DEREK McGOVERN ;JOHN SHAW

DENISE VAN OUTEN is favourite for Strictly Come Dancing and Jerry Hall is the rank outsider.

That's because Van Outen has that sexy woman-jumpsout-of-a-cake vibe about her, while stringbean Hall is more cake-jumps-out-of-a-woman.

The long-legged Texan is most famous for being the squeeze of first Bryan Ferry and then Mick Jagger, even if there wasn't much to squeeze, and is now stepping out with an Australian millionaire. Stepping out mainly to designer shops.

Hall (right) is the kind of high-maintenance girl who would never consider consorting with a man who doesn't use the word 'winter' as a verb. I prefer to use it as a synonym for summer.

Hills reckon the former model will be among the first kicked out of the new series of SCD, which begins tonight.

Michael Vaughan takes the obligatory ex-cricketer role, with TV presenter Richard Arnold batting for the other side. Arnold will have his fans but punters should note that fellow daytime TV presenter Dan Lobb didn't last long last year.

The show didn't have a Lobb on, especially after Holly Valance went.

Vaughan and Arnold can each be backed at around the 25-1 mark but only by the insane. A better bet is Lisa Riley at around 40-1. She was a hidden presence on You've Been Framed, yet whenever she appeared on screen on Emmerdale it was the farm that was hidden.

People tend to enjoy fat women dancing, especially when the 10-to-two slowies start, so Lisa is guaranteed goodwill nationwide. She has instead requested a good meal nationwide.

At 40-1 she's a rattling good each-way bet because she can't be kept out of the frame, no matter who's taking the picture. Hills bet: 11-4 D Van Outen, 3-1 L Smith, 5-1 K Walsh, 6-1 N Byrne, 0-1 V Pendleton, 12-1 bar.
