This week is Movie Night on Strictly Come Dancing, so who will produce the blockbuster moves to get the public voting on the night?
Anita Dobson was eliminated from the show after her partner Robin was forced out through injury and was replaced by Brendan Cole – who had previously come to Holly’s rescue when Artem was injured. Their Cha Cha Cha to ‘Uptown Girl’ was not enough to woo the judges or the public and she was sent packing.
Holly Valance and Artem Chigvintse were voted into the bottom two despite putting in an impressive display on the floor. They look to be the couple most likely to be voted off this week and can be backed to go at best odds of 6/4 (Boylesports – £40 free bets). The other two couples who are not quite keeping pace with the frontrunners are Robbie Savage and Ola, and Alex Jones with partner James. Both finished below Holly on the leaderboard, but their popularity kept them in for another week. Robbie should survive once again, but Alex could be in trouble if she doesn’t perform.
Harry Judd and Aliona once again put in a couple of supreme performance to get the highest score (including three 10s) for their dance, while also winning the annual ‘Swingathon’. Their performance only strengthens the case for them to be the bookies’ favourites to win the series, and they are odds-on at 8/11 (Boylesports).
We still fancy Chelsee Healey to win the hearts of the masses as the final approaches and we’ll be backing her at 4/1 (Betfred – £50 free betting) to win the series. She is now joint second favourite with Jason Donovan – who has maintained a good standard throughout but who has seemingly ceased in his development. He’s also a little too serious to garner enough votes to win the Glitterball Trophy.
So for Movie Week on Strictly, our leading lady is Chelsee Healey, while Holly will do well to get more than a bit part.
