Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Victoria Pendleton favourite to leave

Victoria Pendleton (Strictly Come Dancing)

Victoria Pendleton is the 13/8 favourite with William Hill to be eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing this weekend as her ride on the crest of the Olympic wave looks to be coming to an end.

Westlife’s Nicky Byrne is 11/4 to go with ex England cricket captain Michael Vaughan a 3/1 shot. Pendleton is 8/13 odds on to score lowest this week, Nicky Byrne is 10/3.

Rather surprisingly, William Hill have seen a fair amount of money for Dani Harmer to win the show this week. The Tracy Beaker actress has been backed in to 12/1 from 16/1 under the weight of money that has come in for her since the end of last Sunday’s show.

Louis Smith has been stuttering of late but is still the favourite to win with Denise Van Outen quickly catching him up at 13/8. Van outen is the 8/11 favourite to score top points this week, Dani Harmer is 3/1 and the show favourite Smith is 9/2.

“Pendleton has done well to still be in the competition as she hasn’t lived up to people’s expectations but with Richard Arnold gone she is surely next to waltz off the show,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.


Strictly Come Dancing 2012 continues Saturday, 24th November at 18:30 with the latest Strictly results show on Sunday 25th November at 1925 on BBC One and BBC One HD.
