They now leave six celebs in the contest for this weekend's Quarter Final live show.

As the race to become the 2021 Strictly Come Dancing champion enters its final stages, AJ Odudu is beginning to close the gap on long-time favourite Rose Ayling-Ellis.

The Blackburn TV presenter made it through to the quarterfinals with a score of 36 from the judges and bookmakers BoyleSports have cut her chances of glory into 6/1 from 10/1 making her the biggest threat to Rose who remains the odds-on frontrunner despite drifting to 1/5 from 1/7.

John Whaite topped the leaderboard with 39 points for his Argentine Tango but is friendless in the betting with his outright hopes eased out to 10/1 from 8/1.

Meanwhile, Dan Walker remains the outsider at 25/1 in the betting having scored 31 points for his Rumba routine.

Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “With the Glitterball in touching distance, we are seeing a lot of support arrive for AJ Odudu to become the Strictly Come Dancing champion.

"The TV presenter is now 6/1 from 10/1 while the favourite Rose Ayling-Ellis has been eased to 1/5 from 1/7 but is very much still in control.”
