We’re seven weeks in to Strictly Come Dancing and with the competition hotting up we decided to ask the viewers for their verdict on the series so far.
From favourite judges to favourite couples, we posed the questions and YOU gave some very interesting answers. Here’s YOUR Strictly half-term report…
Debbie McGee is the red hot favourite for the 2017 Glitterball trophy

The new Queen of Latin (Shirley Ballas handed her crown over after THAT Charleston) is a hit with the viewers who just can’t seem to get enough of her. 39% of RadioTimes.com readers polled BEFORE Sunday night’s elimination show said they think she’ll take the crown, followed by Alexandra Burke in second place and the now-departed Aston Merrygold in third.
Readers aren’t too confident that Ruth Langsford and Anton Du Beke can turn things around, and they also think Davood and Nadya don’t have much chance of taking the glitterball title.
Could the Loose Women presenter and the EastEnder pull off a coup? Or could we find them in the dreaded dance off just a week before Blackpool?
Viewers think Aston’s elimination is a Strictly disaaaaaaster, darling
Aston Merrygold’s departure on Sunday night was a huge shock for Strictly viewers. He was readers’ third favourite to win the competition and 71% of 9,000 readers polled after his elimination said he definitely didn’t deserve to be sent home following his dance off with Mollie King.
Giovanni and Debbie have the BEST chemistry, according to the fans
A Strictly couple’s chemistry is often just as important as their technical ability and viewers think Debbie and Giovanni are top of the leaderboard in that department, too.
The duo, who seem to have struck up quite the friendship outside the ballroom, nabbed 21% of the vote, followed by early favourites Susan Calman and Kevin Clifton. Calman and Clifton were initially voted the most popular couple of the 2017 series before they’d even danced a single step.
