The competition is heating up in Strictly Come Dancing as more celebrities are slowly climbing up the leaderboard. Everyone is desperate to get through to the next round as it’s Halloween Week but sadly someone has got to go. Express.co.uk has the odds on who is most likely to leave the dancefloor for good.
Who is favourite to be eliminated next?
Ladbrokes have come out with their latest odds ahead of tonight’s (Saturday, October 23) show.
The results seem to forever be changing and this time it is Ugo Monye and professor dance partner Oti Mabuse who could be in danger.
The bookmakers have revealed the former England rugby player could be up for the chop with 4/7 odds.
Sadly Ugo and Oti weren’t able to perform last week so have been away from our screens for longer than usual.
He took to Twitter to explain that his absence was down to a back injury.
Ugo tweeted last week: “Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to dance this weekend on the show.
“I have a history of back problems which has always been managed under the guidance of medical professionals.
“Unfortunately this has been causing me some unwanted problems this week!”
He went to the hospital on October 15 for a “procedure” but after some rest, Ugo has been back to training.
They will be taking on the Rumba to Leave The Door Open by Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, and Silk Sonic.
Ugo’s partner Oti is Strictly’s current two-time champion having won twice in a row.
She and former Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher picked up the Glitter Ball trophy in 2020.
Oti then continued her success last year with another win with comedian Bill Bailey.

But could her reign be almost over as Ugo is the latest favourite to leave the show?
According to Ladbrokes, the second most likely to make their exit in week five is BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker and his partner Nadiya Bychkova with 4/1.
After them, it is young chef Tilly Ramsay and Nikita X with 5/1, Dragons’ Den boss Sara Davies and Aljaz xx with 12/1 and then Olympic Swimmer Adam Peaty and Katya Jones with 14/1.
But of course, it could all change tonight depending on where everyone finishes on the leaderboard.
On the other end of the spectrum is EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis.
She and partner Giovanni Pierce remain the favourite to win the entire show with 11/10 odds.
