Who Do You Think Will Be Eliminated First? (Poll)

Ok so this poll was suggested by one of my followers on twitter and I decided that I’d run with it and poll the community. Obviously we don’t have much to go on beyond the launch show but I’ll ask the question

Who do you think will be eliminated first in the 2018 series? Please try and vote for who you THINK will be eliminated rather than who you would like to see eliminated as I’m sure that’s an entirely different question. Make your vote count in this poll as you can only select one option

Just a reminder that the website will be going down for maintainance on Sunday whilst I migrate the site to its new host ready for when it starts getting busy once the spoilers start rolling in. All polls that are running at the time of maintainance will be frozen whilst the maintainance is ongoing.

The new hosting solution moves this site from costing me £3 to £4 a month to host to more like £300 to £400. This is obviously a lot of money. Many of you have already helped out with my hosting costs and I’m grateful to everyone who has so far this series. If you want to (and can afford to) help out, or just want to buy me a pint or say thanks for all the spoilers you can do so using THIS LINK or the button below. If you can use the link please do as for a number of reasons it is better for me if you use the link than it is if you use the button

Strictly Come Dancing 2018 – Launch Show Discussion/Poll

Whilst the launch show might not contain too many surprises thanks to last week’s pairings spoiler this is our first proper glimpse at the couples who will be taking to the dance floor for our entertainment in the next few weeks.

But which couples look like they will go all the way? And who will be trying to avoid the horror of being out during the first results spoiler in a few weeks time? You can let me know your thoughts on that or anything else to do with tonight’s launch show right here or over on Facebook or over on Twitter (on twitter tag @davejthorp and include the hashtag #StrictlySpoiler). Or vote in the poll below when it opens at the end of the launch show

I don’t have any prizes quite yet but very soon the biggest competition this site has run kicks off with 4 prizes up for grabs each and every week of the 2018 series. You can find more details HERE. Or why not head on over to Facebook and join in with the celebrations when we reach 10k page likes. There’s a £50 voucher up for grabs on Facebook.

This website will be going down next weekend for maintenance whilst I migrate it over to the clustered hosting solution I used towards the end of the 2017 to keep the site up at peak times. At the same time my hosting costs will increase by a factor of 100 from £3 a month to £300 a month. Many of you have already helped me out so far this series including a very generous £25 donation this morning but I’m as grateful to those who donate £1 as I am to those who donate more. If you want to, and can afford to, help out with my increasing hosting costs, want to buy me a pint or just want to say thanks for all the spoilers you can donate through THIS LINK or using the button below. If you can use the link please do because if you use the button the big corporate bigwigs at PayPal will take all the money but if you use the link it sends it all to me

If you can’t get on the website during the maintenance period don’t panic, I haven’t gone anywhere and the site will be back up before the start of week 1 of the series.

Class Of 2018 – Betting Update

With the entire class announced it’s time for me to take a look at the betting and see who the early favourites are with the bookies.

Ashley Roberts – 4/1
Charles Venn – 5/1
Lee Ryan – 6/1
Faye Tozer – 8/1
Vick Hope – 8/1
Danny John-Jules – 9/1
Dr Ranj Singh – 10/1
Stacey Dooley – 10/1
Joe Sugg – 12/1
Lauren Steadman – 14/1
Katie Piper – 16/1
Kate Silverton – 20/1
Seann Walsh – 20/1
Graeme Swann – 25/1
Susannah Constantine – 33/1

(All prices correct with Coral as of 13:00 on 21/08/18)

There’s not a lot to pick between the top three with Ashley currently favourite however Charles and Lee are snapping at her heels.

Faye may well be stronger than her 8/1 odds suggest and Danny is an absolute steal at 9/1 considering he’s topping the current poll here at the home of The Strictly Spoiler and he has danced previously in his career.

Joe Sugg is also possibly a tempting bet at 12/1. Whilst a relative unknown with a lot of Strictly’s audience he has a literal army of followers on social media to rally behind him and vote for him

Outsider Graeme Swann could also be worth a look at 25/1 as cricketers have done well on Strictly before and interestingly rank outsider Susannah is only 33/1 and not the usual 66/1 or 100/1 that you’d often see a rank outsider priced at

Who is your money on? You can let me know in the comments or over on Facebook/Twitter as always

Also donations are open to help me out with the site’s hosting costs, or to just buy me a beer. Very soon the cost of hosting this site will rise over 100 times from £3 a month to over £300 a month. If you can afford to and want to help me out any amount no matter how large or small is always appreciated. You can use THIS LINK which is preferable as PayPal will send me all the money if you do or the button below which PayPal will take a cut out of
