Anthony Cotton Takes The Lead In Let's Dance For Comic Relief Odds

Whilst there has been some concern aired about whether Comic Relief can sustain another series of it's Let's Dance competition for fear it is getting a little jaded, the BBC are pulling out all the stops to attract audiences to the show. The celebritiies who are competing, prepared to make fools of themselves to draw the public's cash are almost a backdrop to the big names singing on each show. Kimberley Walsh, The Script and Paloma Faith have already performed and Nicole Scherzinger and Justin Bieber are the headliners this coming weekend. The celebrities vying to win the Comic Relief crown must feel rather overtaken by the glitz and glamour of the vocalists.

The criticism this year has centred around the fact that the contenders have almost become too slick, too accomplished and the air of comic surprise about seeing someone dance has been lost. In the first heat Tim Vine won the public vote to go through to the final and whilst his Timberlake was perfectly adequate, it was not a comic masterpiece and came first more as a result of his popularity as a comic amongst the viewers.

When it is almost feasible for Justin Timberlake to appear as a guest, with the quality of bookings that the beeb are securing, the whole programme has become rather a confusing experience to watch. On the back of this strange mix of content it is not at all surprising that Coronation St.'s Anthony Cotton soared to the top of Paddy Power's odds table at 2/1 to win.

Combining a very accomplished tap dancing routine with a very comical script the actor pitched the perfect performance. Dancing to the classic 'Anything Goes' staged in an old people's home, the comedy came from the surprise element of oap's dancing and the well timed interpretation of the song. Of the other performances this week, the fact that Rosemary Shrager and Kim Woodburn's interpretation of 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend', was unpopular with the viewers just shows what is unlikely to go down well.

As rather large ladies of a certain age, Kim and Rosemary proved their willingness to look daft in the name of charity and certainly threw themselves into their roles and in past years they would have done well but this year has a very different feel about it. It is going to take some real slick moves and a very creative comic script to topple Cotton off the top, but then maybe viewers are just more interested to see Nicole Scherzinger's moves.than Vanessa Feltz'.
