Strictly Come Dancing: Bookies reveal bad news for Dan Walker as everyone backs Rose to win

It's getting exciting now!

Strictly Come Dancing star Dan Walker is the bookies’ favourite to be eliminated this weekend while Rose Ayling-Ellis remains hotly tipped to win.

According to data from Betfair, BBC Breakfast presenter Dan could finally be saying goodbye to the SCD family. This is despite him never having been in the bottom two so far.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: “Despite controversially never being in the bottom two, Dan Walker is the 8/11 favourite to be eliminated from Strictly next.

“He is followed by Tilly Ramsay at 2/1 and Rhys Stephenson at 3/1 to face the chop.”

One viewer took to Twitter, saying: “Dan’s got the dreaded Rumba. May as well call it the kiss of death.”

Meanwhile, Rose is set to be the most popular star in Strictly history.

In fact, she’s such a hot favourite to walk away with the famous Glitterball Trophy that doing any actual dancing is just a formality.

Currently Rose and Giovanni Pernice are huge favourites to win. They have incredible odds of 1/5, according to BetVictor.

BetVictor spokesperson Sam Boswell told us: “The Strictly market has not seen a favourite this strongly supported in a long time.

“At 1/5 Rose is well on course and the next few weeks seem a formality having won the hearts of the voting public.

“Despite a top score of 40 last week Tilly Ramsay remains the biggest outsider to win at 50/1.

“Meanwhile supposed love birds Aj Odudu and Kai Widdrington are the most likely to prevent Rose from winner as second favourites at 7/1.”

Rose and Gio will be dancing the Pasa Double to Sia’s California Dreaming.
