Gregg Needs To Butter Up Strictly Judges

Strictly Come Dancing

Outright Betting

The first elimination looms in Strictly Come Dancing and after their first performances, the good have been separated from the bad.

Gregg Wallace’s Charleston to ‘Hey Good Looking’ fell flat and he is first to face the axe at 7/4.

Tim Wonnacott could be set to waltz out of the competition after a miserable score of 18 sees him priced as the 11/4 second favourite to be eliminated. Judy Murray was being shuffled about the dancefloor by partner Anton during their rather lifeless Cha Cha and she is 5/1 to go. Jennifer Gibney’s performance was reminiscent of a mother at a wedding and she is not safe at 11/2.

Scott Mills may have finished bottom of the leaderboard but at 13/2 could survive the first elimination. Sunetra Sarker is 14/1 to go with Alison Hammond and Steve Backshall both looking ready for round three at 28/1.

Safe Celebrities include 11/4 favourite Frankie Bridge and Pixie Lott and Simon Webbe who are both 4/1 to win. Fan favourite Caroline Flack looks safe as she is 5/1 for the Glitterball Trophy with Thom Evans behind her at 7/1.
