Strictly Come Dancing fans work out couple who will leave show first

Strictly Come Dancing fan super sleuths believe they have already worked out who will be leaving this year's series of the show after just one first live show – and it's not who you might expect.

As the 15 core contestants took to the dancefloor for their first dances, detective fans are convinced they've 'worked out' who will be voted off first.

The show on Saturday got off to a flying start with incredible debut performances all around including Nigel Harman's powerful Paso Doble which rightfully topped the leaderboard.

Proving how highly talented this year's group is, the leaderboard then proceeded to have four celebrities in joint second place with Bobby Brazier, Layton Williams, Ellie Leach and Amanda Abbington all scoring a high 29 points each.

Sporting legend Annabel Croft and TV star Angela Rippon came joint third.

Looking at the lower end of the leaderboard is where fans have started to draw on their suspected conclusions.

Sitting in the middle was Angela Scanlon, Eddie Kadi, Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Jody Cundy but the bottom for now is Adam Thomas, Zara McDermott, Nikita Kanda and finally, Les Dennis.

Although there will be no voting off this week, with points carried over into next weekend, fans speculated that it's not actually Les Dennis who they expect to go, and that Nikita is looking far from safe.

One show fan said: "I HATE to say this after tonight but I’m predicting Nikita being first out next week #Strictly," whilst another added: "My instant week 1 prediction is that Nikita will be first out #Strictly."

More followed suit and added: "The standard was unbelievable tonight. What a fantastic first show. I predict big things for Nigel, Angela and Ellie. I think the one at risk of going first will be Nikita (even though I think she seems lovely) #strictly."

Best known as the host of BBC Asian Network's Breakfast show, Nikita is partnered on the dancefloor with professional dancer Gorka Marquez. The pair chose a beautiful waltz to Whitney Houston's Run To You for their first stint on the dancefloor.

Craig Revel Horwood said he felt the routine “lacked tone”, but noticed Nikita delivered “some beautiful hand shaping”.

Motsi Mabuse admitted she could sense Nikita was nervous and advised her to practice on her own to build her confidence.

This year's show marks the eighth year for seasoned pro Gorka, who is engaged to Gemma Atkinson.

He made it to the final in last year's 2002 show, with Helen Skelton.
