Strictly Come Dancing 2016 results: Anastacia to be next out?


Bookies are backing Anastacia to be the next celebrity to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

And not for the first time.

Despite avoiding the dance off last week, having featured in it the week before, Anastacia is expected to be in the firing line once again as bookmakers BoyleSports make her the 13/8 favourite to waltz out of Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.

Naga Munchetty featured second from bottom on the leaderboard last week and is 3/1 to be next to get the chop.

Ed Balls has held the bottom of the leaderboard since week one, but has been entertaining viewers with his moves. His odds of 9/2 to be eliminated see him third in line in the betting and by no means safe.

Laura Whitmore, who faced off with Tameka Empson in the dance off last weekend, may be spared the agony this week at 10/1 to go.

At the other end of the betting ahead of this weekend's live show, Danny Mac remains the one to beat at 6/4 with Louise Redknapp in his shadow at 4/1 and Claudia Fragapane next at 11/2.

Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports commented: “Anastacia started Strictly off on the wrong foot by upsetting viewers when she refused to take part in the dance off in week one due to an injury. The bad blood seems to be lingering while punters seem to be sick and tired of the singer and have been snapping up her 13/8 odds to go.”

She added: “Ed Balls is undoubtedly one of the least coordinated of the lot this year, but he is entertaining none the less and quite possibly could be sticking about for another week as both Anastacia and Naga Munchetty are ahead of him in the betting.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2016 airs Saturday night at 6:30PM on BBC One and continues Sunday night at 7:15PM with the results.
