Strictly Come Dancing 2021 LIVE: Ugo Monye and Oti Mabuse's elimination shocks fans

10/24/2021

STRICTLY fans have been left shocked after Ugo Monye and Oti Mabuse were booted off the show.

Rugby union star Ugo failed to impress the judges with his rumba, with Rhys Stephenson beating him for the final spot in next weeks Halloween themed edition of the show.

Judges were obsessed with the passion between Rose and Giovanni on Saturday, who danced to Alicia Keys song Fallin' – a track about falling in love with someone at work.

    Rose and Giovanni odds-on favourites to win Strictly

    ROSE AYLING-ELLIS is storming ahead as the clear favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing this year, according to Ladbrokes.

    After wowing the judges once again on Saturday evening it’s now just a 4/6 shot that Rose and Giovanni lift the glitter all trophy this year.

    Unfortunately at the other end of the betting it’s not looking so good for Ugo as the front runner for the axe on Sunday evening.

    Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Rose and Giovanni are running away with the competition this year and it’s going take something special for the odds-on favourites to fail now.
