Who went out of Strictly last week?

Professional rower James Cracknell OBE was the first celebrity to lose his place on the BBC show after a he performed the jive to Tutti Fruitti by Little Richard.

He told host Tess Daly: “Definitely enjoyed the last three days of the last week as I got to grips with the steps and started to enjoy it.”

Who will be voted out this week?

According to Betway, David James is currently the favourite to leave with odds of 8/11. Anneka Rice is just behind the ex-England goalie at 11/2.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: ““David’s Paso Doble received the second lowest score ever on Strictly. Having hit back at the judges’ critique, he may be out of favour on Saturday’s show.

“He’s 8/11 to be eliminated on Sunday. If he doesn’t make an impressive save, he could be hanging up those dancing shoes.”
