Dance revelations mean Alex and Holly to be Strictly’s bottom two
All of the six remaining celebrities on Strictly Come Dancing have confirmed their dances for the next live show and the immediate impression is that Holly Valance and Alex Jones look the most in danger of being in the bottom two.
It is highly likely that Robbie Savage will end the night with the lowest score on the leaderboard for the second week in succession, but given his fanbase and likeability, he is expected to stay safe.
Chelsee Healey, Harry Judd and Jason Donovan are widely regarded as the three most talented entrants and it is also therefore unlikely that they will be in any trouble at this stage of the competition.
Thus, this leaves Holly and Alex and both may have their issues.
Holly is 11/10 in the Strictly Come Dancing odds and she is arguably the least liked by voters of the remaining contestants, having survived being in the bottom two in each of the past two weeks.
There is the possibility that Holly could be suited to performing the Paso and it is arguably now or never with her, given that she has shown potential on previous shows without ever really fulfilling it.
But the Paso does involve a certain amount of aggression and attack and it is doubtful whether she possesses the ability to act strong in the way needed to pull off a routine in this field.
Meanwhile, Alex has been given an American Smooth routine which logically sounds fine, but with Jason doing something similar, she could be overshadowed.
With two of the same dances on the same show, producers may also want to keep these apart and with big things expected of Jason’s ‘Singing In The Rain’, he may close the show.
This means that Alex will get an unhelpful early slot, which is also a detriment to her survival chances.
Alex is 7/2 to be the next celebrity eliminated on Strictly Come Dancing.
