Why is Jamie Laing projected to leave Strictly Come Dancing this week?

Mediaworks has carried out the study, which looks at how contestants are being discussed in a positive or negative way on social media.

The company uses AI technology to analyse the most recent tweets relating to each contestant.

And the latest figures show that Jamie has fallen from second favourite to the man with the lowest ‘social sentiment’ score.

According to the study, that means Jamie is the most likely to leave this week.

Who else could be in trouble this week?

The dance-off could also feature TV presenter JJ Chalmers this week.

The former Royal Marine and partner Amy Dowden also score negatively in the study, despite impressing judges.

But there’s better news for Maisie Smith.

She’s trending in the right direction on social media even though she found herself in the dance-off last week.

The study shows that support for the EastEnders actress is rising.

So much so she’s now top of the ‘social sentiment’ scoring system.

Nicola and Katya to return

One dancer that the study doesn’t include is Nicola Adams.

The Olympic-winning boxer had to leave the show because partner Katya Jones tested positive for coronavirus.

Now news has emerged that Nicola and Katya will return to the show.
