Mike Dean 4/1 to switch football pitch for Strictly ballroom

The soon to be retired referee is 8/1 to head into I’m A Celeb jungle…

After announcing he was retiring from football refereeing at the end of the season, Mike Dean is fancied at 4/1 with William Hill to take part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The 53-year-old, who has been a Premier League ref since 2000, is the shortest-priced name on the list of rumoured contenders, with Lorraine Kelly (6/1), Jade Thirlwall (12/1) and Piers Morgan (20/1) also priced up.

Hills also make Dean just an 8/1 chance to become the latest recently retired sports personality to appear in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! 

William Hill spokesperson, Tony Kenny:

“Mike Dean has been a mainstay of the Premier League for over two decades but after he announced he was hanging up his whistle for good, we think he’ll be inundated with offers in other fields of work.

“The word is he used to do a bit of Ballroom dancing and so looks tailormade for an appearance on Strictly Come Dancing at 4/1, while he also looks a solid contender to head Down Under for a stint on I’m A Celeb at 8/1.”
