Huh. History, and aftertiming, probably suggested someone in the middle of the pack was likely to go and Lee did not have a 'dead cat bounce' as he loses the danceoff to Ranj.

I can't believe we're going to get another mediocre male winning this if Joe wins.

Lee was up against Charles, Stereoman. If he was up against Ranj he may well have stayed in. At least the bet came in this week with Lee being eliminated!

Will put up another blog on wednesday once the songs and dances are out. Let's see if we can get two in a row!

Looks like the public has turned on Seann Walsh for kissing his dance partner Katya Jones. Also, his girlfriend has dumped him.

Faye Tozer's now joint favourite alongside Stacey Dooley. I get the feeling that Stacey being a BBC employee will get her to the final but it doesn't always guarantee a win.

This week is going to be very interesting!
After the off dance floor headlines, it's a will the public or won't they vote for Katya and Seann. Shirley has said that the Judges are to score the dancing and not their private lives so we will see!

New blog here https://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=414135

I don't think they will go, I think Ranj will!

Can we make it two in a row? We will see.

Who do you tink will leave the weekend?

I suspect they will go, as in the early rounds its a popularity contest.

I am not sure the revelations have anything to do with me or anyone, but suppose that is the world we now live in.

Ultimately the news may benefit Seann in the long run, giving him a higher profile.

I wouldn't necessarily want to back Seann at such short odds. It'd be a 'mercy elimination' so he can rebuild his life but who knows what the public reaction will be if he stays in any longer? I don't think he'll be able to win anybody over with his dancing now.

Superficially, and this is kind of silly to say it, "Strictly Come Dancing" has never been about the dancing. It's about popularity.

Odds from William Hill...

Third elimination:

Seann Walsh 11/8
Ranj Singh 4/1
Katie Piper 9/2
Charles Venn 6/1
Graeme Swann 10/1
Lauren Steadman 10/1
Vick Hope 16/1
Kate Silverton 16/1
Danny John-Jules 33/1
Ashley Roberts 66/1
Joe Sugg 100/1
Stacey Dooley 100/1
Faye Tozer 100/1

To win outright:

Faye Tozer 4/1
Stacey Dooley 4/1
Joe Sugg 9/2
Ashley Roberts 6/1
Vick Hope 10/1
Danny John-Jules 12/1
Charles Venn 12/1
Lauren Steadman 12/1
Kate Silverton 16/1
Katie Piper 20/1
Graeme Swann 33/1
Seann Walsh 40/1
Ranj Singh 40/1

Top three finish:

Faye Tozer 11/10
Stacey Dooley 11/10
Joe Sugg 6/5
Ashley Roberts 13/8
Vick Hope 11/4
Danny John-Jules 10/3
Charles Venn 10/3
Lauren Steadman 10/3
Kate Silverton 9/2
Katie Piper 11/2
Graeme Swann 9/1
Seann Walsh 12/1
Ranj Singh 12/1

Top female:

Faye Tozer 5/2
Stacey Dooley 5/2
Ashley Roberts 7/2
Vick Hope 13/2
Lauren Steadman 7/1
Kate Silverton 10/1
Katie Piper 14/1

Top male:

Joe Sugg 10/11
Danny John-Jules 7/2
Charles Venn 7/2
Graeme Swann 12/1
Seann Walsh 14/1
Ranj Singh 14/1

Seann has the Charleston this week so he may score ok, so even if the public don't vote for him, he just needs to score significantly higher than who he is up against. Then the Judges would really have no choice but to save him. And as you so rightly said stereoman,Shirley has already said that they will be judging the dancing not peoples private lives. It will be interesting though. My money is on Ranj to go!

Katie was very poor and although I tipped her to do well, she was awfull technically and deserved to go.

Charles and Karen look to have lost all their public support and it will be interesting to see what happens next week. It depends really on what dance they get, as if they can score enough, they beat who their up against if. I'll wait until the dances are out!
