Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Nicky Byrne is TellyMix readers' early favourite

Nicky Byrne (Strictly Come Dancing)

Nicky Byrne has been voted as an early favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2012 by our readers.

In our first popularity poll of the new series, the Westlife singer topped the vote of the fourteen celebrities by an impressive 29% of the vote.

Model Jerry Hall was a perhaps surprising second with 22%, while Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh completed the top three with 14%.

Victoria Pendleton led the middle of the pack, joined by Tracy Beaker actress Dani Harmer, fellow Olympian Louis Smith and West End star Denise Van Outen.

Towards the bottom end and in trouble in the first weeks are Hollywood actor Colin Salmon and cricket captain Michael Vaughan, sharing just a percentage point between them.

They'll no doubt have to pull some fabulous dances out on the first two live shows to escape being in the dance off!

Johnny Ball and Richard Arnold are also in trouble, while Lisa Riley and Fern Britton join Sid Owen in the danger zone too.
