Strictly Come Dancing Live Online,The soap star has been dealt devastating news as it has been revealed that the Tango – which she will perform to My Sharona by The Knack (Royal Blood cover) – has been responsible for more exits than any other in the history of the show.
Bookmakers Betway have now given the former Emmerdale actress odds of 11/8 to be kicked out of the competition.
According to their research, the Tango has led to 14 per cent of all Strictly Come Dancing eliminations.
“Viewed as the ultimate test, the Tango is certainly a favourite amongst Strictly viewers,” spokesperson Alan Alger commented.
“The sizzling routines makes it difficult to pull off, and our research suggests it’s very much a risk-reward scenario for dancers who attempt the notoriously tricky dance.
“This week, Gemma Atkinson has opted for the Tango, a move which we think could prove costly.”
But it’s not all bad news for the 33-year-old as she is also performing the Rumba, which is believed to be the safest routine.
Furthermore, Joe McFadden is also dancing the Tango, however bookmakers believe this will help his chances of winning.
“The dance has contributed for the most perfect 40s in the show’s history and our punters are backing the actor to blow the Strictly crowd away this weekend,” Alan added.
The Holby City star will perform the Latin routine to Human by Rag ‘n’ Bone while he’ll also tackle the American Smooth to Have You Met Miss Jones? by Robbie Williams.
