Strictly Come Dancing 2018 Finalists – Joe and Dianne

It’s time for the first part in a 4 part series where I take a look at your finalists for 2018 and their Strictly journey so far. Taking the finalists in the order they qualified for the final we start with Joe and Dianne

Best Dance

Joe and Dianne’s best routine with the judges was their Quickstep in Blackpool week which scored 38 (8,10,10,10)

Worst Dance

Joe and Dianne’s lowest scoring routines were their American Smooth from week 3 which scored 26 points (6,7,6,7)

Their Cha Cha Cha the following week also scored 26 points (5,7,7,7)

Average Score

Not including the Lindy Hop athon because why would you include it (and the judges are still deciding on their scores for it) Joe and Dianne have amassed a total of 408 points across 13 routines making for an average score of 31.4. This is the lowest average of the 4 finalists

Number Of Times In The Dance Off

Like two other finalists Joe and Dianne have never ended up in the bottom two and faced a dance off

Odds Of Winning

Joe and Dianne are at the time of writing 9/4 with Paddy Power to lift the Glitterball on Saturday making them the second favourites with the bookies

Can They Win?

On paper Joe and Dianne are the weakest of the finalists but that means nothing as the final is decided purely on viewer votes so the question is will Joe get enough votes to hand him the glitterball?

In all honesty this depends on one thing and one thing alone. Can Joe motivate his fans (many of whom aren’t in Strictly’s usual audience demographic) to vote for him? If he can…… he wins hands down because he has millions of them and far more than any other finalist.

Joe and Dianne are currently sitting in 2nd place in my latest poll asking who you want to win the series so its possible the glitterball could be just out of reach for them but like I said it depends on just how many of his YouTube and Twitter followers he can get to vote for him on Saturday.

The 9/4 price offered by the bookies in my opinion underestimates his fanbase and chances of winning and I’ll be biting the hand off the bookies to get some money on him at that price shortly (but don’t listen to me because I’ve already lost two bets on the winner this series)

What do you think of Joe and Dianne, are you supporting them and do you think they will lift the glitterball next weekend? You can let me know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter as normal

Stay tuned for the next part in this series tomorrow where I’ll be looking at favourites to win: Stacey and Kevin

Please take a minute to read my annual Thank You Post where I thank those who have contributed towards another huge year for The Strictly Spoiler. Also don’t forget that I still have the Christmas Special Spoiler available for your viewing delight if you like to take a peek at your Christmas presents early.

There might be no more spoilers this series but the content on this site does not end there. Starting tomorrow I will be taking a look at the finalist’s Strictly journeys so far and providing me analysis of their chances of lifting the glitterball so watch out for that. And next weekend the discussion/poll post will open as normal with polls throughout the course of the final asking who your winner is so again check back for that.

This website will also be going down for maintenance shortly after the final in order to migrate it back to a hosting solution that does not cost me hundreds of pounds a month whilst we are in the off season. The maintenance should only last a day or two.

Complaints to the BBC

This week’s spoiler has come from an audience mole through my usual sources and should be accurate.

Hosting and operating this website has cost me nearly £1000 this series and that has been helped out by your donations. If I have provided you with a useful and valuable service this series and if you can afford to and want to help me out with those costs or just want to buy me a beer or a Christmas present you can do so using THIS LINK or the button below

What do you think of the results? You can get involved with the discussion right here in the comments section. Or head on over to Facebook or Twitter and join the communities there. On Twitter remember to tag @davejthorp in your comments and include #StrictlySpoiler. It’s the final week of the Strictly Spoiler Competition for 2018 and your final chance to get involved in the discussions and potentially win a £20 Amazon UK Voucher.

You can still vote in this week’s poll and let me know your thoughts on who you want to win the series. You can select just one winner this week

I’ve also got my annual thanks post for your reading pleasure or if you are still craving spoilers you can check out The Christmas Special Spoiler. Who says you can’t open your Christmas presents early?

There might be no spoiler next weekend as not even the BBC are stupid enough to pre record the final results but there will still be a lot to do right here at the home of The Strictly Spoiler. Check back during the week for my guide on the finalist’s Strictly journey so far and also don’t forget to check back during the final next week as I’ll be running polls during the final after each dance to find out who you want to win.
