This year’s Strictly Come Dancing is hotting up as the remaining contestants make it past the halfway point. However, Tom Fletcher and Rhys Stephenson may fear this weekend could be their last on the BBC show as new elimination evidence points to these two contestants fighting for survival in the dreaded dance-off.

For the third year in a row, digital market agency Mediaworks has been tracking social media sentiment to predict each week’s elimination.

The analysis focuses on whether contestants are being discussed positively or negatively on social media. 

Mediaworks then uses this data to plot the celebrities onto a graph to show who is most likely to end up in the dance-off and who is has the public’s support. 

From October 23 to November 4, Rhys finds himself at the bottom of the sentiment chart.

Rhys fought for his survival in the competition two weeks ago and it seems he may have to do it again on Sunday.

McFly frontman Tom is close behind Rhys on the graph while Dan Walker narrowly escapes being in the bottom two. 

CBBC presenter Rhys and Nancy Xu will perform a Quickstep to Jonas Brothers’ What A Man Gotta Do.

Meanwhile, Tom and Amy Dowden hope to impress with their Paso Doble to Jaime Texidor’s Amparito Roca.

Have Tom and Rhys sealed their spots in the dance-off or will fans see another shock elimination on Sunday?

At the other end of the scale, Sara Davies comes out on top ahead of the next live show. 

However, Rose Ayling-Ellis is extremely close with just 0.0066 splitting the two Glitterball Trophy contenders.

Sara and Aljaž Škorjanec will take on the Quickstep to Dolly Parton’s 9 To 5.
