Time for part three of a 4 part series in advance of the live final where I take a look at each of the four finalists and their performance so far in Strictly. In this part, it’s the turn of Frankie Bridge.
Frankie has scored 38 points on two occasions. The first time was in week 9 with her Viennese Waltz (9,9,10,10). The second time was in last weeks Semi Final with her Argentine Tango (9,9,10,10).
It feels very strange to have a worst dance section here. Frankie’s lowest score was achieved on 2 occasions when she scored the abysmal score of 30. What was she thinking?
The first was all the way back in week one with her waltz (7,7,8,8) and even though this was one of her worst dances going off the scores she still topped the leaderboard that week. The second was her Charleston the following week in week 2 (7,7,8,8). That week she missed out on the top spot to Pixie Lott!
Again ignoring pointless elements such as the waltzathon and Donny Osmond, Frankie has amassed a total of 445 points across 13 dances making for an average score per dance of 34.2. The only celebrity with a higher average score this series was Pixie Lott who was eliminated two weeks ago.
Number Of Times In The Dance Off
Frankie is the only contestant this series to have never faced the dance off, nor has her professional partner Kevin from Grimsby across his two series
Odds of Winning
Frankie is currently 13/8 second favourite with SkyBet to lift the glitterball and on paper is the person most likely to win if clear favourite Caroline Flack doesn’t win. Frankie’s public vote appears to be quite strong as she has never been in the dance off and has been lifted out of the danger zone on a couple of occasions on weeks when she has been weak but the others strong.
The poll on this site has just 12% thinking she should win and 7% thinking she will.
Tune in this afternoon for the final part on Mark Wright and during the live final tonight for something special
