Strictly Come Dancing results: Favourite to leave tonight revealed

strictly come dancing 2018 semi final cuts - 12

Here's who could be going home in tonight's semi-final Strictly Come Dancing 2018 results show.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman hosted the Strictly Come Dancing live semi-final last night (December 8).

With the Glitter Ball trophy in sight, the couples each performed two routines in a bid to impress the judges and the audience at home.

They danced both a Latin and a Ballroom routine as they battled it out for their place in the final. Judges Shirley Ballas, Dame Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli gave their verdicts on each dance, and the lines opened after all the couples have danced twice.

As always, the judges' scores will be combined with the latest public votes to determine the two couples at the bottom of the leader board. Tonight, those two couples face the dance off to stay in the competition.

The judges will decide which of the duos to keep and put through to next week and which couple will be the next to waltz out of the competition.

At the bottom of the scoreboard for this fourth week was Lauren Steadman. She started well with a Tango that scored 31 points but mistakes in the Samba cost marks as they finished with a total of 54 points.

Lauren consequently finds herself chalked up as the favourite to be out in tonight's Strictly results.

As for who she could be in the dance off with, Ashley Roberts is again tipped to be in danger despite topping the judges' scores.

Ashley was in the bottom two for a second time last week, where it was Charles Venn who left Strictly. Bookies think she'll again face having to perform her routine again - but will the judges save her for a third time?

Meanwhile, Stacey Dooley continues as the favourite to win the series ahead of the grand final next weekend.

In tonight's Strictly Come Dancing results, the two celebrity couples in the bottom two of the combined judges' and viewer rankings will find themselves having to dance again before the judges decide who stays.

Plus, there will be a sensational 'red' themed group number from the professional dancers together with a special music performance from Little Mix.

Strictly is back Sunday night on BBC One with the results from 7:20PM, Sunday December 9.
