Strictly favourite faces shock exit this week after being dealt terrible blow by producers, say fans
STRICTLY Come Dancing fans are fearing a fan favourite could be in trouble after landing one of the most difficult dance routines the series shows.  As the remaining 10 couples are heading into week seven of the competition, and after the shock elimination of EastEnders’ James Bye and Amy Dowden last week, it’s clear no one is safe.  Ellie Taylor and Johannes Radebe topped the leaderboard during the Halloween special, doing a Couples’ Choice routine inspired by Hocus Pocus to I Put A Spell On You.  However, fans are fearing that this may be a high coming before a fall, as they’ve now been landed with the difficult rumba.  The Cuban dance, which is characterised by slow and determined hip movements, passionate storytelling and requires immaculate posture.  Strictly rumbas have proven to either make or break partners during their stint on the show – and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans.  “Absolutely thrilled for Ellie and Jojo, although I sadly sense the glittery trap door next week with that rumba,” wrote one, before adding, “more than happy to be proved wrong.”  “Ellie and johannes rumba who else is scared?” said another.  While another took a quote from Whoopi Goldberg and said: “ellie t, you in danger girl”  Strictly is going back to basics this week after two back-to-back themed episodes.
