Strictly’s Simon Is Next Obvious Elimination
Simon Rimmer looks set to be given the Strictly boot this weekend with William Hill making him odds on at 4/6 to be the fifth contestant to be eliminated. Not only is he the red hot favourite to go, he has been the best backed for the chop with nearly 40% of all wagers.
Ruth Langsford is the 3/1 second favourite with Davood and Susan looking relatively safe at 7/1 and 8/1.
“Simon is the next logical choice to go,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “On dancing ability (or lack of) alone, it would be a straight shootout between him and Ruth and the latter seems to have an army of fans that should see her through to next week at least.”
Fifth elimination: 4/6 Simon Rimmer; 3/1 Ruth Langsford; 7/1 Davood Ghadami; 8/1 Susan Calman; 20/1 Mollie; 33/1 Joe McFadden; 33/1 Jonnie Peacock; 66/1 Debbie McGee; 100/1 Alexandra Burke; 100/1 Aston Merrygold; 100/1 Gemma Atkinson
Strictly winner: 9/4 Alexandra Burke; 11/4 Aston Merrygold; 7/2 Gemma Atkinson; 7/1 Gemma Atkinson; 7/1 Debbie McGee; 10/1 Jonnie Peacock; 12/1 Joe McFadden; 16/1 Mollie King; 25/1 Davood Ghadami; 33/1 Susan Calman; 100/1 Ruth Langsford; 100/1 Simon Rimmer
