BBC Strictly’s Adam Thomas dealt crushing blow hours before live show

Luba Mushtuk accidentally elbows Adam Thomas in Strictly training

Strictly Come Dancing star Adam Thomas could end up leaving the competition this weekend after landing in the bottom two last Sunday.

According to the bookmakers’ latest odds, Adam and his dance partner Luba Mushtuk are the favourites tipped to be given the boot.

Adam found himself in the bottom two for the first time last week and the latest betting suggests he’s likely to be in that position again this week.

‌Betway has given Adam and Luba odds of 4/5 to be leaving, although, Angela Scanlon is close behind him with odds of 3/1.

Krishnan Guru-Murthy also isn’t safe as he has odds of 5/1 of being eliminated this weekend.

Betway spokesman Chad Yeomans remarked: “All of the judges voted to save Adam over Zara from elimination in Halloween week, but he’s the strong favourite this week with odds of 4/5 to be next out of the competition.

“Potential salvation for Adam could come from Angela Scanlon who is next in the market at 3/1 to go, and she will have to navigate the notoriously tricky Samba she is taking on with Carlos to Jennifer Lopez’s Aint It Funny.

“Not even this year’s superstar dancers Layton and Ellie have hit a score of 30 dancing the Samba, so Angela has it all to do if she wants to avoid the bottom of the leaderboard.

“At slightly longer odds of 5/1 comes this year’s surprise package Krishnan, who continues to defy the odds, and this week has been given the couple’s choice dance.

“He and Lauren are expected to perform a crowd-pleaser to the catchy You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon, which gives him every chance to survive another week!”

At the other end of the scale, Ellie Leach is the least likely to leave with odds of 100/1.

Bobby Brazier, who is tipped to win the BBC series, has been given odds of 80/1 of elimination.

Layton Williams and Nigel Harman also have good odds of being safe this weekend.

Last Sunday, the judges decided to save Adam and Luba after landing the dance-off against Zara McDermott and Graziano di Prima.

It was an emotional moment for the former reality star and her dance partner as they bid farewell to the competition.

Adam may have been saved from elimination last week, but will he be as lucky this weekend?

Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One.
