Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Janette Manrara cries as Will Bayley gives injury update

Will Bayley had to quit Strictly Come Dancing this week after getting in injury in rehearsals. His professional partner Janette Manrara was left in tears while he gave an update on his condition. 

Will spoke to Tess Daly from the audience: “I’m so gutted but it’s so good to be here to support everyone. 

“I feel like I’ve had the most support throughout the hole process so the least I can do is watch you all. 

“I’m loving it I’m so proud.”

Discussing his knee, Will said: “It’s getting there – I want to see what it;s like in a few weeks.

“I will be there in Tokyo because I want to win that gold medal!”

Tess was keen to know what his highlight of the competition had been. 

Will proudly explained: “My highlight has been having my partner Janette – she’s been my rock and I can’t speak highly enough of her. 

“She believed in me and I can’t speak highly enough about her – my contemporary dance as well.”

Tonight’s competition is extremely competitive as the race to the top of the leaderboard gets more and more competitive. 

Currently, Kelvin Fletcher is tipped at 5/6 to win, according to Betway. 

He is closely followed by Karim Zeroual at 3/1. 

Emma Barton and Saffron Barker are in hot pursuit with odds of 6/1 and 12/1 respectively. 

Michelle Visage – who topped the leaderboard last week – is sitting at 14/1 to lift the Glitterball Trophy.

On the other end of the scale, Mike Bushell is favourite to leave this week. 

He has been in the bottom two twice and after knocking out Strictly bombshell Catherine Tyldesley last week, he is looking more and more likely to be eliminated. 

Mike is priced at 4/7 to leave the competition after his dance tonight.

Emma Weymouth hasn’t had the easiest of rides either, and she is priced at 9/4 to be eliminated. 

Chris Ramsey holds odds of 5/1 to exit, while Alex Scott is tipped at 20/1 for a departure. 

But with last week’s shock result still rippling through the fan base, it’s anyone’s game. 

Strictly Come Dancing: The Results airs tomorrow on BBC One at 7.15pm.
