Susanna Reid's Focus predictions

This week he takes on BBC Breakfast's Susanna Reid and her Strictly Come Dancing partner Kevin Clifton.

Reid is a big Crystal Palace fan who had a season ticket at Selhurst Park in the 1995-96 season, and has been on the pitch herself in the last couple of weeks.

"I have some brilliant memories of watching Palace in some fantastic venues," Reid said. "I still make the occasional visit, but being on Strictly means Saturday games have been rather interrupted.

"Even so, I had the chance to go and practise some moves at Selhurst Park earlier this month.

"We were doing the Viennese Waltz and what we needed was a lot of space to glide, so Kev thought that would be the perfect place to expand - and be inspired by an amazing football team."

Clifton has supported Scunthorpe United all his life but he also follows Chelsea because his dad is a fan of the Blues and said: "He really wanted to call me Osgood Clifton after Peter Osgood, but my mum was not having any of it!"
