Strictly Come Dancing 2017 Finalists – Debbie and Giovanni

It’s time for part three in my four part series where I take a look at each of the 4 finalists and their Strictly journey so far. Taking them in the order they qualified for the final next up is Debbie and Giovanni

Best Dance

Debbie and Giovanni’s best dance came in week 7 where they made Craig not only dust the cobwebs off his 10 paddle super early but in a Strictly first he bowed down before Debbie McGee. Their Tango scored a maximum of 40 (10,10,10,10)

Worst Dance

Debbie and Giovanni’s worst routine came in week 4 where their Cha Cha Cha scored 27 (6,6,7,8) with the judges

Average Score

Debbie and Giovanni have scored 441 points across 13 routines. Weighting week 5 to account for the absence of Bruno that makes for an average score of 34.6 which is the second best of all the finalists

Number of times in the Dance Off

Debbie and Giovanni have survived one dance off this series during Blackpool (week 9). Their Spice Girls themed Samba didn’t impress with the public and saw them in the bottom two against Jonnie and Oti

Odds of winning

Debbie and Giovanni are presently 9/4 second favourites with bookmaker Coral to lift the glitterball on Saturday night.

Can they do it? Debbie seems to be a marmite character as far as comments I’ve seen on my social media profiles are concerned. Some people love her and think she’s done amazingly well this series especially as a more mature contestant. Others can’t warm to her for various reasons including a perception that she has had previous dance experience as she was previously trained as a ballet dancer when she was a lot younger.

In spite of the mixed public reception Debbie and Giovanni do have a very real chance of being named champions on Saturday though a lot will depend on their final routines and how much support they can get from the undecided voters during the final
