Strictly Come Dancing: Two celebs in danger of elimination while a new favourite emerges

Friday 28th September 2018

The competition properly begins this weekend as we say goodbye to the first Strictly Come Dancing celebrity.

Following last weekend’s first live show, the BBC One dancing show will lose its first contestant of the 2018 series — and by the looks of it, only two are in danger of getting the boot.

The bookies still make Susannah Constantine the 6/4 favourite to be voted out, with Seann Walsh nipping at her heels at 9/4.

This means if you stick a tenner on Susannah and she leaves, this will return £25 (including your stake), or for Seann, £32.50.

The pair are well ahead of the third favourite to go, which is TV presenter Katie Piper, who is 8/1.

Susannah and Seann have been at the bottom of the pile since the start, and their first live dances failed to convince the bookies that they can stay the distance (despite the fact that Susannah's was massively entertaining, see below).

Meanwhile on the other side of the dancefloor, a new potential winner has emerged from the pack.

Stacey Dooley is now 4/1 favourite to win the Glitterball trophy this winter, ahead of Ashley Roberts and Joe Sugg (both 5/1).

Anyone who backed her at the start when she was 8/1 could be in for a decent return if she continues to impress.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “It looks like a straight shoot-out between Susannah and Seann to stay in the competition this weekend and we’re favouring Susannah to be the first to pack her bags and be eliminated from Strictly 2018.

“Stacey was very popular last weekend and is now our favourite, however Joe also lit up the dancefloor and has been well backed this week to go all the way. He’s now into 5-1 having been as big as 16-1 before a dance had taken place."
