Jay McGuiness suffers Strictly setback after poor performance

Jay McGuiness remains the favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing’s Glitterball trophy, but has been pushed out to 11/10 from Evens after only managing to score 25 for his quickstep.

After being mediocre week after week Jamelia came back fighting this week and scored a whopping 32 for her Charleston. The Loose Women panellist is the biggest mover having been cut into 33/1 from a massive 100/1 shot.

Peter Andre remains the second favourite to win at 7/2, with Katie Derham, who topped the leaderboard on 33, backed into 11/2 from 15/2. Helen George is next in the betting at 9/1 with Anita Rani, Kellie Bright and George May Foote all priced at 14/1.

Kirsty Gallacher faced Daniel O’Donnell in the dance off and prevailed, however at 100/1 to win it’s only a matter of time before she falls victim. Also on offer at 150/1 is Ainsley Harriott, with Carol Kirkwood bottom of the pile at 250/1 to win.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at BoyleSports commented “Jay McGuiness suffered a fall from grace, having topped the leaderboard last week he placed fifth from the bottom this week. He is still on top of the betting, but after drifting from Evens to 11/10 it’s doubtful he can hold onto the top spot next week.”

She added “Having already been in the bottom two and with dismal comments throughout the competition Jamelia stunned the judges with her Charleston and is beginning to look like the dark horse after shortening into 33/1 from 100/1.”
