Strictly Come Dancing results: Denise Van Outen getting fewest public votes

Denise Van Outen (Strictly Come Dancing)

Denise Van Outen is bottom of the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 polls, it's been claimed.

The West End star hasn't been in the bottom two yet, saved by her top marks from the judges.

According to the Daily Star, last weekend saw Denise receive the fewest votes from the public with just 4% of the vote, and she's been averaging a measly 7%.

Louis Smith is said to be leading the pack with 30% at his peak and a strong average of 24%.

Dani Harmer is also doing well with the public, while Kimberley Walsh is middle of the table and Nicky Byrne in danger.

Strictly's scores are made up by a combined vote from the judges and public, meaning that top marks from the panel can save an act from being in the dance off.

Conversely, a lack of public support can send acts into the danger zone, as was seen with Kimberley Walsh earlier in the series.

In the final shows however it'll be the public alone who decide the winner.

A show source told the Daily Star Sunday today: “Denise is the latest in a long line of bookies’ favourites who perform well on screen but just aren’t connecting with the public.

“Maybe they resent her West End experience and have got ­behind some of the underdogs ­instead.

“In an Olympic year you would expect Louis to do well but ­viewers may be surprised he is topping the vote most weeks.

“If he keeps it up, the winner’s glitterball is as good as his.”
