Jamie has survived consecutive dance offs

It's semi-finals weekend on Strictly and the latest odds make Jamie Laing the likeliest celebrity for the seventh elimination and Billy Bailey favourite to win reports Max Liu...

"On the Exchange Bailey retains narrow favouritism at 2.35/4, although he has drifted from odds-on in the past week."

Jamie Laing is odds-on to become the seventh celebrity to be eliminated from Strictly this weekend as the show reaches the semi-final stage.

The Made in Chelsea star has survived the dance-off two weeks in a row but, if the odds are correct, his luck will run out this Sunday.

Laing is the firm favourite for the exit at 2/5 and his nearest rival in the betting is Maisie Smith 4/1. She too has twice found herself in the dance-off, although she performed strongly in the past couple of weeks.

Last week, JJ Chalmers and his partner Amy Dowden became the sixth couple to be voted off the show. That was no surprise and eliminations have generally gone as expected. On that basis, Laing is next in line. But it's only three weeks since he and partner Karen Hauer topped the leaderboard so we know they have the ability to cause an upset.

HRVY and Billy Bailey neck and neck

It's been an unpredictable series so far in terms of the leaderboard, with five pairs finishing top. HRVY has finished top three times and, on Sportsbook, he and Bill Bailey are joint favourites to win the Glitterball at 5/4.

On the Exchange, meanwhile, Bailey retains narrow favouritism at 2.35/4, although he has drifted from odds-on in the past week. He and Oti Mabuse are yet to top the leaderboard but the public loves them.

Strictly is on BBC1 at 19:00 on Saturday with the elimination show to follow on Sunday.
