Good Morning Britain weather presenter Lucy Verasamy looks set to join BBC One’s Strictly after bookies revealed they had cut the odds on the star appearing in the show to just 2-1. In recent months a host of famous names have been linked to the BBC One favourite including Bonnie Langford, Piers Morgan and Joey Essex and the rumours about Versamy will add even more spice to the increasingly hot pot.
Bookmaker Coral revealed yesterday that they had cut the odds on the presenter appearing on the show from 4-1 to 2-1 and fans wasted no time in installing the breakfast TV star as an early favourite to win the famous Glitterball trophy.
“When the rumours first began that Lucy might join the Strictly class of 2018 we saw a rush of bets on the star winning the show” Coral boss Harry Aitkenhead said. “And if she does line-up amongst the dancers you can almost guarantee that she would be a popular contestant” the betting shop Supremo added.
The popular weather presenter was born in Suffolk and attended Silfield Primary School in Wymondham, Framlingham College Junior School in Suffolk and King Edward VII School in King’s Lynn before graduating with an honours degree in Geography from Brunel.
Following graduation, Versamy managed to snag a work experience placement at Sky before joining the channel permanently to work for Sky News. Then in 2010 Versamy left Sky for ITV and a place on new breakfast TV show Daybreak. However Versamy didn’t stop there and in 2017 the young presenter moved to ITV’s flagship morning show Good Morning Britain.
