Last Updated: 11/01/13 10:10am

Franky Fryer was the early favourite for Dance Off 2013 but it seems the early punters reckon new boy Stu is the man to beat.

Bookmakers Sky Bet have opened their market on the annual competition and Franky, who won under his previous guise Baby Elvis in 2006, has slipped to 3/1 to take the trophy after getting his 'nut daan' on Saturday morning.

Debutant Stu leads the running at 5/2 while Tubes - who has never won the Dance Off in its four-year history but is usually popular with the punters - out to fourth favourite at 7/1 behind Rocket (9/2), who holds the record for the most victories after taking the title in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009.

The 2010 champion - and only female competitor - Lisa is at 11/1 while 'Don't Care' is 16/1 - ahead of Dave, Dev, Scott, Chris and James in the betting!
