Strictly: Simon Rimmer New Favourite To Get Boot

William Hill can report a shock move for Simon Rimmer to be the first contestant to get the boot from Strictly Come Dancing and he has been cut from 5/2 to 2/1 to go.


“The rumour is that Simon Rimmer has undercooked it in training and is struggling,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Simon was expected to be one of the favourites but he has yet to serve up a treat.”
