Strictly Come Dancing 2022 Predictions: Who is the favourite to be eliminated first?

Former England football captain Tony Adams is the clear bookies favourite to become the first celebrity eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing 2022.

The nation’s favourite celebrity dance competition is now back in full swing, but who is the favourite to be eliminated first this weekend?

Who will be eliminated first from Strictly Come Dancing 2022?

Tony Adams, capped 66 times by England across 13 years, is the clear favourite having failed to impress the judges with his Tango, scoring just 15 points out of 40. He is a best price 6/4 (Evens with one bookmaker) to become the first celebrity voted out.

The only other short priced option in the Strictly Come Dancing next elimination odds is Scottish TV presenter Kaye Adams (7/2 still available) - another whose Tango missed the mark in week one. 59-year-old Adams scored just 21/40 but did get a six from Craig Revel Horwood.

Musician Matt Goss, who had been among the pre-competition favourites at 9/1 (now best priced 66/1), actually scored fewer points than Kaye & Adams with 20 but remains as long as 10/1 in the first elimination market (5/1 with one bookmaker).

Rounding out the top five favourites for elimination this weekend are Eastenders actor James Bye (14/1) - who managed just 22/40 for his week one jive - and comedian Jayde Adams (as short as 14s but with 25/1 available), whose samba to Dirrty by Christina Aguilera gave her 23 points.

Name Best Price Worst Price
Tony Adams 6/4 EVS
Kaye Adams 7/2 6/4
Matt Goss 10/1 5/1
James Bye 14/1 5/1
Jayde Adams 25/1 10/1


And who is the new favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2022?

Former Two Pints of Lager and a Packer of Crips actor Will Mellor was available at 13/2 before last Saturday's first live show but is now as short as 7/4 to win the competition. Helen Skelton (4/1) and Fleur East (best price 6/1) are second and third favourites respectively despite finishing outside the top three for best scores in week one.
