Chris Ramsey, 33, has so far managed to defy the odds by continuing to excel on this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing alongside professional dance partner Karen Hauer, 37. After the pair got their best score last weekend, could they go all the way to win the BBC dance show after former contestant Charles Venn, 46, has teased a “surprise” final result.
The Casualty star performed with Karen last year and the couple managed to make it all the way to the quarter final of the series.
Just like Chris, the soap actor went from strength-to-strength with the judges commending his ability to keep up with the pace.
Despite Kelvin Fletcher, 35, being the hot favourite to lift the Glitterball Trophy, it seems Charles believes his former dance partner could go all the way this year.
In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the former EastEnders heartthrob suggested the comedian will reach the final.

Asked who will take the crown from reigning champions Stacey Dooley, 32, and Kevin Clifton, 37, the soap star said: “You can look at obvious choices, but I would say personally, Chris Ramsey.
“I feel Chris Ramsey is going to surprise people. I think he already has but I think he’s going to surprise them more.
“It’s the tortoise and hare factor - he’s definitely the tortoise; he’s gathering momentum now. This isn’t a sprint; this is a marathon.
“Sometimes, some people might jump out the block really fast, but all of a sudden, they peak too early and they don’t have nowhere else to go.”
