A spokesperson said: “Despite his critics, Dan Walker continues to prove the doubters wrong by avoiding the dreaded bottom two on Strictly.

“However, he is the 5/6 favourite to get the boot in this weekend’s quarter-final.

“At the other end of the dance floor, Rose Ayling-Ellis remains the strong 1/5 favourite to waltz her way to the Strictly crown this year.”

Who is favourite to win the Glitterball?

With Rose favourite to lift the Glitterball trophy this year, AJ Odudu is second favourite at 7/1.

The EastEnders star and presenter AJ have stormed the competition this year, so it’s no surprise that they’re top of the favourites board.

John is at 9/1 and then Dan – in conflict with his odds to leave this weekend – is at 9/1.

Rhys is rank outsider to win the competition at a whopping 100/1.

Some viewers think this is a “fix” but Dan has defended his position.

He said on social media: “And to the few who say ‘just leave’,  ‘Aren’t you ashamed?’, ‘You’re a disgrace’, ‘It’s a fix’ (which I don’t get), or ‘Who is voting for them?’… IT’S A TV SHOW!”
