Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen for a shock exit?

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen's odds of winning Strictly Come Dancing have drifted in the betting according to Ladbrokes.

Following the news that James Jordan's foot injury has worsened and has been banned from training the firm have pushed Denise's odds of winning out to 11/4, although the good news is that she still remains the second favourite behind Louis at even money.

There's a 2/1 chance that Richard isn't as lucky with the judging panel this week and is eliminated, or it's 9/4 that Fern's efforts without Artem dancing shirtless see her waltz out of the competition.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Denise and James are the perfect pairing but if she has to dance with another partner we're anticipating she may slip down the leaderboard and that's reflected in her odds."

Speaking of James, a source told The Sun this morning: “Denise is really worried about him, she can’t believe how much pain he’s in – and how much groaning he’s doing.”

For the time being, former pro Ian Waite has returned to give Denise a helping hand this week throughout training.

This week Strictly Come Dancing is on Saturday 10th November at 6.30pm with the results show on Sunday 11th November at 7.25pm on BBC Oneand BBC One HD.
