Fiona Fullerton has been tipped to Leave Strictly Come Dancing this weekend by the bookies.
For the second week in succession, actress Fiona Fullerton is the bookies’ favourite to leave Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.
Leading independent odds comparison site easyodds.com can reveal that the 57 year-old is a best price 11/4 in this week’s Strictly Come Dancing elimination betting market, despite the judges praising last weekend’s routine as her best to date. The bookmakers are again unconvinced, however, particularly Bet365 and Boylesports who offer just 9/4 that A View to a Kill star will leave.
Also expected to struggle is Countdown host Rachel Riley, who was in the dance-off two weeks ago and who recorded the second lowest score of last weekend.
Judge Craig Revel Horwood described her paso doble as a “disaster” and Ladbrokes are a top price 7/2 on her departing this time around.
Hairy biker Dave Myers continues to defy the judges’ scores – he’s come bottom of the scoring for two of the last three weeks yet hasn’t been in the dance-off to date, with the public warming to his colourful routines. He’s the third favourite to go this weekend at 4/1.
It's a fairly open elimination market this week, with Patrick Robinson (5/1) and Mark Benton (8/1) other celebrities who could potentially be in trouble according to the bookies.
Elsewhere, easyodds.com can reveal there has been a big gamble on Abbey Clancy to win Strictly Come Dancing. The model was cut from 12/1 right into 5/1 after last week’s sensational foxtrot, with only long-time favourites Natalie Gumede (8/5) and Sophie Ellis-Bextor (7/2) rated more likely winners by the bookmakers.
It’s increasingly looking like a five-horse race for the glitter ball, with Ashley Taylor Dawson (8/1) and Susanna Reid (10/1) the only other contestants priced lower than 25/1.
