Strictly Come Dancing: Flack and Wood hot to trot after week four

| 20.10.2014

It was another night of fun, thrills, sequins and DI-SAS-TERS darling as 13 celebrities became 12 after week four of Strictly Come Dancing.

Bargain Hunt presenter Tim Wonnacott and Natalie Lowe became the third couple to Waltz into the sunset after the judges voted to save Towie star Mark Wright in the dance off.

But after an action packed night in the ballroom Oliver Yew takes a look at who impressed with all the right steps and who failed to keep their footwork in check on the hit BBC1 show.

Caroline Flack @ 9/2

The TV presenter is a dark horse to win the show after a string of impressive performances alongside dance partner Pasha Kovalev.

Once again she wowed the audience with an energetic quickstep We Go Together from the movie Grease to join Jake on top of the leaderboard.

Each week the 34-year-old gets better and better and while Frankie Bridge and Pixie Lott remain strong contenders, Caroline could come up on the rails and be the one to side with at 5/2 in the top female market and at 9/2 to win the show.

Jake Wood @ 15/8

It comes as no surprise to see the Eastenders actor at the top of the leaderboard once again after his impressive performances to date and this week’s Jive to Elvis Presley’s All Shook Up did not disappoint.

The ol’ snake hips were out in force once again as he combined a brilliant performance with excellent footwork and leg action to claim an impressive 33 points and a place at the top of the leaderboard.

Wood seems to be everyone’s favourite to win, including Ladbrokes who make him the outright favourite at 15/8.

Scott Mills @ 2/1 to be eliminated next

Judge Bruno Tonioli described it more as an “American Tragedy” than an American Smooth and that was being kind!

The Radio 1 DJ blundered his way through the routine to Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart, choreographed by professional dance partner Joanne Clifton, and was savaged by the judges with Craig Revel Horwood handing him a 2.

But his large Radio 1 following saved Mills and sent him into week four but he can count himself very lucky and is definitely, alongside Judy Murray, in the firing line to be the next celebrity booted off the show.
