It seems Angela Rippon's days on Strictly Come Dancing are numbered if the latest odds from bookmakers are anything to go by.
After two dance-offs, the former Come Dancing host is favourite to be eliminated this weekend alongside pro dancer Kai Widdrington.
Her odds of being booted off have been slashed to 2/5 with Annabel Croft trailing behind at 5/2.
Angela Scanlon is at 8/1 while Bobby Brazier, Ellie Leach, Layton Williams and Nigel Harman all appear to be very safe from being eliminated.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes exclusively told OK!: "It looks as though Angela Rippon is finally out of lives; having been in the bottom two in back-to-back weeks, the odds suggest her Strictly days are numbered."
It comes as Strictly fans branded Angela "arrogant" following comments she made about being in the dance-off against Krishnan Guru Murthy.
She joined Fleur East on It Takes Two and was asked: "Did you think it was all over?"
Angela, 79, replied: "No I didn’t," before addressing her near fall. "I mean I don’t know why, I think the floor was slippery or my shoe was slippery and it just went, but no I didn’t."
She added: "I mean Kai sort of still had hold of me and I just knew what I had to do next and managed to do it."
Viewers claimed Angela was "arrogant" about surviving the dance-off and being given a place at Blackpool.
One wrote on X: "'I used to like Angela Rippon but now that she's been on Strictly she's become totally insufferable the way she goes on about how fantastic she is, she did not deserve to go to Blackpool."
Another viewer added: "Angela Ripping still being a tad arrogant that she didn't think her stumble would affect the result. We all knew that too."
A third claimed her spot at Blackpool was a 'fix', writing: "Anyone else fed up that Angela R is getting all the ballroom dances and hasn’t been tested as much as the other celebs? It’s such a fix!"
This weekend, Angela and Kai are performing the American Smooth to Tea for Two by Ella Fitzgerald.
Can Angela do enough to be saved once more or is it time for her to hang up her dancing shoes?
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One at 6.40pm.
