It was obvious Susanna Reid felt blessed to make it through to the Strictly semi finals after making mistakes and being placed at the bottom of the Strictly leader board. Susanna’s popularity saved her once again as the two remaining male celebrities found themselves battling it out in the dance-off.
It was Ashley Taylor-Dawson who was eliminated after Bruno, Craig and Darcy unanimously voted to keep Patrick. However if Len had been total judge he would have saved Ashley stating Patrick had a bad habit of leading with his heal.
It is very much on the cards for an all female final with Patrick Robinson being the only guy left in the competition now. He joins bookies favourite Natalie Gumede, news reader Susanna Reid, singer Sophie Ellis Bexter and the beautiful Abbey Clancy in the semi final.
The remaining five celebrities will perform two dances in the Strictly Come Dancing Final but there is only four places in the final so one will be leaving after the Sunday night Strictly Dance-Off.
Bookies are predicting Patrick and Susanna are likely to be dancing for survival with Patrick Robinson odds of 4/7 and Susanna Reid odds showing at 9/2. However, as we have already seen, Susanna is very popular so don’t be surprised if she doesn’t participate in the dance-off.
Natalie Gumede odds predict she will be safe while Sophie Ellis Bextor odds and Abbey Clancy odds give them a fair chance of staying.
Anything can happen this close to the Strictly Final and although the best celebrity dancer usually gets the title there have been exceptions over the years. So be prepared for anything.
