Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Ed Balls is favourite to leave next

Ed Balls is the favourite to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2016 this weekend.

Time could soon be up for Ed according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes.

As the celebrities prepare to perform twice on this weekend's show, punters think this could be a step too far for Ed's skills, and have consequently backed him into favouritism for the axe on Sunday evening at 11/8.

This week the six remaining celebs will perform not only their usual main routine but also compete head-to-head in Strictly's first ever Cha Cha Challenge.

Judge Rinder isn't too far behind in the elimination betting at 13/8, or there's 5/1 on offer Claudia doesn't find herself as lucky this time in the dance off.

At the other end Danny Mac looks incredibly safe as he now moves odds-on to lift the glitterball trophy at 10/11, with Louise still chasing him.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Unfortunately for Ed punters reckon he could struggle dancing two routines this weekend, and the money suggests he could be waltzing out of the competition shortly."

The remaining six couples will return to the dancefloor on Saturday 26th November at 7pm with the results show on Sunday 27th November at 7.20pm on BBC One.
