Strictly Come Dancing 2019 results: Who will be first to go this weekend?

Strictly Come Dancing odds

There’s a clear favourite to be first to leave Strictly Come Dancing 2019 this weekend.


The competition heats up on Saturday as the 15 fabulous couples take to the dancefloor on the pursuit of the fabled Glitterball trophy.

Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly host as scores from last week’s opener are carried over and the couples give their all in hopes of impressing the judges – Shirley Ballas, Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse.

Ahead of Sunday’s results, gold medal winning oarsman, James Cracknell, is now the odds-on 4-5 favourite to be voted off Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, after being backed from 2-1 a week ago with Star Sports bookmakers. David James is 4-1, with Anneka Rice 7-1.

“From the weight of money we are seeing, it looks a sure fire certainty that James will be the unlucky loser this weekend. His tango was woeful, and unless his jive has improved considerably, he’s gone,” said Star’s spokesman, Gary Burton.

Meanwhile, Kelvin Fletcher remains the favourite to win while Alex Scott and Dev Griffin ones to watch.

“Dev’s foxtrot was outstanding for a first effort and it’s easy to see why he being backed. While pre-series favourite Alex was slightly disappointing with her quickstep, she showed she has the ability to improve, and with a likeable personality she could easily be around for many more weeks to come,” added Burton.


Alongside the two sets of scores from the judges, this weekend will see viewers vote for their favourites ahead of Sunday’s results show.

The two couples with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes will be pitted against each other in the dreaded dance-off.

The judges will then decide which couple stays to dance another day and who will be the first couple to say goodbye.

Meanwhile, Sunday’s results show will open with a flamenco-inspired routine set on the rooftops of Barcelona.

Plus, the one and only Lewis Capaldi will also be in the studio, performing his number one bestselling single, Someone You Loved.


Strictly Come Dancing’s results show airs 7:15PM on BBC One Sunday night, September 29.

You can watch episodes online live or catch up via the BBC iPlayer.
